About International Accounting and Analytics at National University of Ireland, Galway
Our programme responds to the recent 22nd Annual Global CEO Survey compiled by PwC which notes that ‘A lack of analytical talent is impeding data adequacy.’ The ICAS and FRC report on Auditor Skills in a Changing Business World (in 2016) also notes the importance of analytics skills for accountants and calls for educators to include practical courses on data interrogation and analytics. Our MSc in International Accounting and Analytics is the first programme of its kind in UK and Irish Universities to offer practical hands-on modules in audit analytics tools for accountants.
This is an intensive 10 - 11 month degree programme for high calibre business related/commerce graduates who have not specialised in accounting and who now wish to pursue a professional career in Accounting.
Our team of academics and practitioners provide in-depth practical, technical and research grounded knowledge of key business areas required for success in today’s business environment. This post-graduate programme is taught over two semesters and is followed by two summer schools in May/June. This final element of the programme provides an important capstone to the technical skills you will have developed over the course of the first two semesters.
