Master in Financial Analysis & Audit
The "Financial Analysis & Audit" option aims to train future company and organization directors and managers who will be specialized in the professions linked to both internal and external auditing of organizations.
With a transversal, global vision of the different professions and functions that coexist within businesses, these specialists understand the techniques of accounting, finance, audit and law necessary to appreciate the risks involved in the daily life of organizations. They are capable of judging the relative size of those risks in relation to the competitive, strategic, and economic context in which these organizations operate.
Their knowledge of the legal, regulatory, and ethical framework which governs the functioning of enterprises also allows them to develop internal and external auditing systems for managing the identified risks, and to assure their long-term application.
Targeted competencies from two complementary areas:
EIn terms of technical competencies, students are expected to master the technical concepts and principles of general and financial accounting, management accounting, management auditing, external and internal control and audit, company law and public economics law, company and organization taxation, information and governance systems. They are also expected to understand the close interaction between these different concepts and techniques and to have a perfect grasp of the strategic, ethical, legal and economic contexts within which these organizations operate.
In terms of behavioral competencies, in addition to all the other basic skills expected of all managers, these students are particularly required to develop a global, transversal vision of the way an organization functions, through a combination of field experience and more conceptual training. They are also required to develop strong written and verbal communication skills, based on an ability to listen and to discuss with actors in the field.
