The BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance prepares students for a career in Accounting and Finance. The programme provides a comprehensive education in the quantitative and analytical skills required in the business and in a range of accounting practices. The role of the accountant is placed within the broader business context that is delivered through a range of business relevant electives.
Both Accounting and Finance are core components of insuring the success of any business entity. Our degree programme provides each student with an in-depth knowledge of the area of accounting and finance as well as the practical skills, both of which are essential in the rapidly changing and highly competitive world of business. This in turn then creates a number of opportunities for advancement within a whole range of organisations.
The programme builds on long established and well recognised core competencies within Independent College Dublin in the delivery of and highest quality accounting and finance tuition.
In addition, the importance of new and emerging technologies is recognised and incorporated into programme content throughout its three stages.
Another important dimension of the programme is the International one. With growing internationalisation within business, it is essential that best practice internationally is recognised and incorporated in an appropriate way into degree programmes such as this.
