Details Details

Accounting is the language of finance and business. Accountants compile, analyse, interpret and communicate essential information about the operations of a business – whether that business be a small firm, a publicly traded corporation or an NGO (non-governmental organisation). Decisions are made based on the information provided by accountants; good accounting is crucial to any organisation's success.

Finance is the lifeblood that fuels the economy. The financial sector is made up of lenders and borrowers, big investors and small savers, risk lovers and risk haters, innovators and regulators. Currencies rise and fall, stock markets boom and bust, property values soar and crash, interest rates fluctuate. All of this is supported by the intricate workings of our financial systems.
As a student of Accounting and Finance, you will have the flexibility of a broad-based finance degree, but with a focus on accounting topics, for students who may wish to pursue a career in accounting after graduation. Graduates are entitled to exemptions from all of CAP 1 examinations from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland and equivalent examination papers from the ACCA, CIMA and CPA professional accounting bodies.
