Summary

  • Study Economics, Mathematics and a choice of languages or Computer Science. Languages available: Chinese, French, German and Spanish. Chinese, German and Spanish are available to complete beginners. H5 is required to study French. Advanced German or Spanish requires H5.
  • Either work or study abroad in 3rd year (or work in an internationally orientated company in Ireland – all subject to availability). You may study abroad in the 1st semester, and work in the 2nd.
  • Learn how the financial system works – how assets are traded, international markets are linked, government policy decisions affect the economy and how financial markets respond.

Why choose this degree?

  • Be prepared both intellectually and practically for employment in the highly competitive and dynamic world of international finance.
  • Use analytical tools – including mathematics, deductive logic and applied statistics – to examine problems and devise logical solutions.
  • This degree is not suitable for those mostly interested in the accounting side of finance (though all students are recommended to take one module in Accounting).

Finance graduates have strong numeracy skills, coupled with an ability to think critically and analytically – invaluable assets in a wide range of professions. Graduates can be found in the banking and financial services industry, economic consultancy, finance units of public and private sector organisations, financial research, journalism, and teaching.

Postgraduate degree holders are also to be found working in financial institutions, both public and private, in Dublin, London, New York, and around the globe. We currently offer the following postgraduate courses:
