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.
The International FinTech sector continues to grow, and UCC is placed at the forefront of collaborative research in the sector. The MSc International Accounting Practice now allows students to choose elective modules in information systems and to gain an insight into technologies used in accounting firms worldwide.
The MSc International Accounting Practice is a 12-month programme designed for those preparing to work as accounting professionals, in Ireland and internationally. It is a comprehensive programme, requiring significant student participation and engagement.
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.
