about auditing the future

In addition to the current campaign ‘Accountancy, something for you?’, a campaign called Auditing the Future is organized each year. In 2024 the second edition took place on the 14th March at the NBA Head Office in Hoofddorp. This accountancy challenge is a follow-up on the NBA Impact Challenge and focuses on second and third-year undergraduate students in financial-economical study disciplines. The Dutch universities that provide a master's degree in Accountancy, compete in teams of six students against each other for the title “Auditors of the Future”.

The goal of this challenge is to let students experience how diverse the activities are in the auditing practice. During this one-day event, the teams work on topics such as data analysis, how to deal with executive members, and ESG. The results of the case are presented to a judging panel of distinguished accountants. Besides this difficult challenge, Auditing the Future is the ideal opportunity to present yourself as a professional. Moreover, there are plenty of opportunities to meet and network with individuals from the professional work field.

2025 edition to be announced soon!
