THE GRADUATE SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTING (GSA)
The Doctoral Program of Management Accounting and Controllership (DOCMAC) was founded in the year 2000. In 2005 the graduate school extended its scope to include all aspects of accounting, subsequently changing its name to the Graduate School of Accounting (GSA).
The objective of the graduate school is to create a program to enhance the level of post graduate studies by coordinating research, teaching and tutorials carried out in different schools within the same field. Anyone who has been accepted as a post graduate student into one of KATAJAs member universities is welcome to participate in courses arranged by the GSA.
New students are accepted into GSA once a year. For students accepted the Graduate School of Accounting will offer coordinated supervision by means of thesis committees and preference to attend special courses.
