Want to combine a postgraduate qualification in Accounting with professional exemptions, while preparing for a career in industry, practice, the not-for-profit or public sectors?
The MSc International Accounting Practice is designed to combine technical skills in accounting and business analysis, with the development of key competences in team work, business acumen, effective communication and critical thinking.
Building on the excellent reputation of our Department for producing high caliber accounting graduates, recognised by all of the major accounting practices and other industry partners, the MSc International Accounting Practice will provide students with the skills required to gain a significant number of exemptions from the main international accountancy bodies and invaluable work/research experience; all of which will create huge opportunities for subsequent employment – either internationally or nationally.
To successfully complete the MSc International Accounting Practice course, you complete an induction week, nine taught modules and 20 credits devoted to either placement or a research project.
Lectures are scheduled across two semesters. You should anticipate spending up to three hours preparing and studying outside of lecture time, for each hour of lectures. The course is challenging – but rewarding; requiring high levels of student engagement with the materials.
The MSc International Accounting Practice is delivered by a combination of UCC academic staff and invited guest speakers.
The academics are experts in their field. Most hold PhDs and/or have significant industry or professional experience. A number also hold relevant professional accounting qualifications.
In addition, the academic staff members are research-active, engaged with a variety of research areas and publishing in national and international journals.
This course is open to applicants of all disciplines.
As well as offering academic qualifications, the course also offers academic credits towards preparing for professional examinations and explicitly developing skills for lifelong learning.
