Master’s in Business Management, Financial Crime, and Digital Technologies
Our Master’s in Business Management, Financial Crime, and Digital Technologies program has been specifically designed to address the demands of the job market in the information age. Integrating the three fields of business management, financial crime, and digital technologies allows students to meet the requirements of responsible business professionals today and tomorrow.
In business management, topics covered include business processes, corporate governance, and accounting. A strong focus is given to responsible business practices in the compulsory ESG and Ethics module. As global businesses continue to shift from prioritizing shareholders’ return to overall stakeholder benefit, the values and principles of a business will play a central role in its success/failure as well as to counteract fraudulent business practices. Topics explored in financial crime modules include compulsory modules in forensic accounting, fraud, tax crimes, bribery, and corruption as well as the legal aspects of investigations.
Given the increasing reliance on digital technologies in business management, our program includes modules covering web and open-source intelligence for business and data analysis. Optional modules for specialization are available for AI & machine learning, blockchain, and ERP systems.
