What our students say...

Derek ITBDublin

" I chose Accounting and Finance after completing two years in the General Business course. I always did well in the Accountancy modules and had a greater interest in this area. If you have good Maths or Accountancy skills and like working with numbers then this is the course for you. The accountancy industry is the largest employer of graduates in Ireland and I have managed to secure a job in GAM Fund Management; I started immediately after qualifying."
