Accountancy and Economics

Welcome to the Department of Accounting and Economics.

Our Department's focus is to prepare our students for the challenging and fast-changing world of business with particular emphasis on the financial sector.

Our goal is to provide students with an in-depth knowledge in the key business areas and, also, to prepare our students to become confident professionals in the workplace.

The specialist subjects within the department range from accounting and economics to finance and business information systems. In each of these areas we engage a range of lecturers with academic and professional expertise in order to deliver our modules in a refreshing and informative manner. We have a particular strength in the area of accounting with many of our graduates going on to perform with distinction in the examinations of the various professional accounting bodies.

The department is also home to the AIB Centre for Finance and Business Research which allows students to continue their studies in relevant discipline areas to masters and doctoral level.

Thank you for your interest in our School and Department.
