BECOME MANAGING ACCOUNTANT

What is a VŠR College student like?

He or she is full of desire for new knowledge and is aware that the mere recording of invoices received is not a real mission of a good accountant. He or she wants to influence the company’s decisions. He or she wants to become the head of the financial or accounting department or a consultant to the company’s management, thus making decisions about the future of the company cooperatively.

Managing Accountants are also excellent directors, because they understand the business and finance structure and know how to require the right and meaningful reports from the accounting and financial services.

Since accounting is the language of businessmen, a managing accountant is sovereign in communicating with directors, managers, banks, company owners, etc.

After completion of the three-year study programme you will obtain an academic title Diplomirani ekonomist (VS) – Bachelor of Arts, which corresponds to the educational level VI/2 in Slovenia.
