Accounting, Control and Finance

LM-77 Scienze economico-aziendali

The two-year degree program with two majors, AFC - Aziendale and AFC - Professionale, combines academic excellence with managerial skills and access to the LUISS network to prepare students for careers in administration, control and finance. 

The course is offered in Italian only.

Heightened awareness of business issues and management techniques, from both the qualitative and quantitative points of view, can be useful to organizations of all sizes in all sectors. A combination of these areas of knowledge allows students to develop operational and professional skills to strategically manage problems that regularly arise in administration, finance and business control. 

The course focuses on, but is not limited to: national and international accounting, writing a consolidated budget, tax planning, control system creation, and measuring performance. Particular attention is devoted to extraordinary financial management, internal and external auditing, and corporate governance themes. 

The degree program also includes an internship period with businesses as well as public and private institutions both in Italy and around the world.
