We’re delighted to launch our brand new programme, the MSc in International Accounting and Business, which will commence in September 2019 and is now open to applications! If you’re a business graduate, here are just a few reasons why you should consider it…
Fast-track route to an accountancy career
This programme is open to graduates of all businesses courses. This means that you can pursue a professional accounting qualification even if you don’t already have an undergraduate qualification in accountancy. The course is therefore the perfect solution for undergraduate students who only realise they want to go down the accountancy route in the middle of a more general business degree (like our Bachelor in Business Studies). Having students from various business backgrounds also makes for a diverse and dynamic learning environment and facilitates the deepening of business expertise.
Become a well-rounded business specialist
At the same time, 50% of the course content revolves around innovative business modules like Data Analytics, Next Generation Management and an Applied Research Project (Practicum). This also enables graduates to pursue other business avenues upon completion. With a strong focus on the international context, the course is particularly valuable for those who wish to work overseas or in global enterprises in the future.
Gain generous accounting exemptions
Graduates of this course gain exemptions from professional accounting bodies, such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Accountants Ireland. This means you are one step closer to becoming a fully qualified accountant upon graduation. The fact the course is well regarded by these institutes reflects the impeccable standards of both teaching and subject matter.
Choose between a Practicum or a Dissertation
Different people learn in different ways. That’s why we offer students on the MSc in International Accounting and Business programme the option to complete either a group Practicum project or an individual research Dissertation. Through the Practicum, students gain invaluable hands-on experience in a real business scenario, while the Dissertation is often preferable for those interested in a very specific area or who wish to embark on a career in academia.
Approachable, passionate faculty
The lecturers on the MSc in International Accounting and Business programme are really enthusiastic about launching the course in September 2019. Feedback from current students continually references their knowledge, professionalism, helpfulness and passion for the subject matter.
Suitable for international students
This course is also perfect for international students who want to complete a Masters programme in Ireland. DCU Business School’s student body comprises 58 nationalities and we welcome applications from across the globe. The focus on the international context means that what you learn will also be applicable to enterprises in your home country.
