If you would like to pursue a career as a professional accountant and would like to obtain an understanding not only of financial and managerial accounting, but also how these fit into a business, this is the route for you.
  • Students gain an excellent foundation in the management of organisations, as well as in financial analysis and the measurement of performance.
  • Studying Business and Accounting together helps you develop an excellent set of technical accounting skills, coupled with a thorough appreciation of the world of business and management.
  • Accounting and finance need to support the implementation of a business strategy to create and capture value for and from customers. The Business element of this degree gives students an appreciation of the core functions of a business and how they interact to create and capture value.

Why choose this degree?

  • To become a professional accountant, you need to successfully complete three levels of professional exams as well as on-thejob training. If you successfully complete the BBS Business and Accounting, you will be exempt from the first level of these professional examinations (CAP 1 examinations from Chartered Accountants Ireland and equivalent examination papers from ACCA, CIMA and CPA professional accounting bodies).
  • If you complete the Master’s 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.
  • You will have the option of taking a four year degree with a work placement or study year abroad, thus combining what you learn in university with insights into industry or another culture.
