What is the Swiss Certified Public Accountant?
As experts in accounting standards, auditors inspect and verify financial statements which are based on national or international accounting standards. Additional activities are the audit of company foundations, capital increases and reductions. Moreover, auditors support their customers in financial and management accounting, business appraisals as well as in insurance and tax matters.
What are the conditions for graduates of the International Financial Management programme to get the exemption?
Graduates who want to benefit from the dispensation have to complete the master's programme successfully. In addition, they have to select and pass specific elective modules as part of the programme in the disciplines Financial Accounting & Reporting, Managerial Accounting and Corporate Finance worth 15 ECTS-credits in total with a sufficient grade in each module. These electives are already part of the programme so students just have to select the appropriate modules. If these clearly defined criteria are fulfilled and a special proposal is approved, it is possible to start in the third semester with the official examination procedure instead of starting in the first semester. In this way, the candidates need one year less for the programme.
