Course info


For many students, the rewards and prestige offered by a career in accounting make it an attractive path to pursue. This degree in Business and Accounting will be a major step towards achieving that goal. It will be a popular choice with students who want to move directly into a career in accountancy as well as those who recognise the value of an accounting degree in a wider business management context. The Bachelor of Business in Accounting programme provides foundation education in the quantitative, computational and analytical skills required in the world of business and accounting. Students learn about the role and operation of accounting in a range of contexts. All major accountancy disciplines are covered including financial and cost accounting, management accounting, auditing and taxation.


Students on this programme will gain an in-depth knowledge of the major theoretical and practical aspects of accounting from both Irish and international perspectives as well as a strong understanding of business, legal and taxation issues and practices. As the course progresses, the emphasis shifts from foundation knowledge to more advanced study of particular areas of the major accounting, business and finance disciplines. In year 3 there is a greater emphasis on independent work and on the development of a critical and analytical approach to the subject matter.

Year 1

Seven mandatory subjects provide foundation knowledge in core business and accounting disciplines and develop students' communication skills.

Year 2

Year 2 further develops technical knowledge in the key accounting and finance disciplines while simultaneously advancing students’ expertise in the management of business and information.

Year 3

In year 3, students examine current theory and practice in specialist financial fields and learn to deal with financial and business situations in an integrative and cross disciplinary manner.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from this programme may seek to use it as a fast track to professional accountancy qualifications by availing of their entitlement to exemptions from ACCA, CIMA, ACA or CPA. Accounting graduates who enter employment immediately usually find well-paid jobs very quickly. Typical positions would be in audit and general accounting firms as well as multinational blue-chip companies and small and medium-sized enterprises across a range of industry sectors.
