Comment QUICK TIP:
Accountancy at Leaving Certificate level is not required as the programme starts with Beginners Accounting.

QUICK FACT:
There is a significant shortage of accounting graduates in Ireland. Our final-year students are experiencing high demand for their skill set and receiving numerous offers of employment both locally and nationally, often prior to completion of the course.
Careers or Further Progression GRADUATE DESTINATIONS:
Most graduates progress to a professional accounting qualification. Graduates also pursue careers in finance, banking and financial services, second-level teaching (addon Professional Masters in Education (PME)) or lecturing (add-on master’s required). This programme meets the Teaching Council of Ireland criteria for secondary school teaching for Accounting teacher to Leaving Certificate level and Business teacher to Junior Certificate level.
