Recognising the importance of analytics skills for accountants, the recent ICAS and FRC report on Auditor skills in a changing business world (2016) called for educators to include practical courses on data interrogation and analytics. Our new MSc is the first programme of its kind in UK and Irish Universities to offer practical hands-on modules in SAP and audit analytics tools for accountants.
Our professional development programme which runs throughout the programme is designed to provide support for career development and offers a suite of career events, one-to-one career support and guest lectures from practice.
As a graduate of the MSc. in International Accounting and Analytics at National University of Ireland, Galway, you will have access to a wide range of employment opportunities in Accounting Practice, Industry, Management Consultancy and Financial Services.
You will have developed an understanding of cutting edge design and use of systems and processes to leverage best use of organisational data to facilitate performance management of business organisations. Coupled with your technical accounting skills you will be well positioned to work within the accounting function and management team to lead and manage organisations to achieve their strategic objectives.
The design and structure of this programme was motivated following consultation and advice from industry, professional bodies, accounting practitioners and regulators. In addition to the core academic modules, students are exposed to a variety of learning technologies to develop their skills for practice and the global business environment.
These include: SAP training and certification, exposure to practitioner partners in the form of recent adjunct professorial appointments, practitioner-led Analytics Summer School using cutting-edge tools, international academic-led Summer School addressing all aspects of organizational performance, and a suite of guest lectures. In addition, this programme relies on close relationships with the international professional accountancy bodies which ensures that students have access to e-platforms providing career advice and practitioner networks.
