Master in Finance: gaining deeper academic understanding

July 28, 2022 | 1 min read
Ruud is Management Consultant for Accenture’s CFO & Enterprise Value Practice. Ruud decided to do a Master in Finance for three reasons: expanding his network with like-minded individuals, deepening his academic knowledge and the desire to use the resulting knowledge in the course of his work.


When Ruud was exploring possible options for a Master in Finance, he discovered that the program at TIAS is fairly unique in its kind. “Most programs in this field focus on finance and control. That means they mainly concentrate on the analysis of figures to explain what has happened in the past. My own work is much more centered on future-oriented analyses and investment issues. This matches the focus of TIAS’s Executive Master in Finance.”


Read in the interview how Ruud learned to understand financial data faster and how to engage in more substantive conversations with clients.
