Gain insight into organizational measures aimed at providing reliable and relevant information while complying with laws and regulations. Take the Governance, Risk & Compliance course!
What is the Governance, Risk & Compliance course?
The Governance, Risk & Compliance Course covers a major part of the chartered accountant and chartered controller training in six months. It covers the Internal Control & Accounting Information Systems (ICAIS or BIV/AO) section. This is an internationally recognizable subject whose Dutch predecessor is often referred to as Administratieve Organisatie (AO), Bestuurlijke Informatieverzorging (BIV) or the combination BIV/AO.
At Maastricht University it is possible to follow this part as an independent course. Central to the Governance, Risk & Compliance Course is the quality of information and the contribution information can make to business operations. Information has many manifestations and uses, but ultimately the goal is to get organizations ‘in control’. The goal of the course is therefore to gain insight into organizational measures aimed at providing reliable and relevant information to internal and external stakeholders.
