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). 
To become a professional accountant, you need to successfully complete three levels of professional exams as well as on the job training. If you successfully complete the BA Accounting and Finance you will be exempt from the first level of these professional examinations (CAP 1 examinations from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland and equivalent examination papers from the ACCA, CIMA and CPA professional accounting bodies).
If you complete the Masters in Accounting at Maynooth, you will be exempt from the second level of these examinations. You will then only have to take one level of professional exams and complete on the job training to qualify as an accountant. No other accounting programme can get you to your end goal any faster!
Our Accounting Group were delighted with their success at the Irish Accountancy Awards 2017 being declared winners of the Excellence in Education and Training category.  The award recognises excellence in the delivery and development of knowledge and skills in the Accountancy Profession.
