Overview

Students in the Business and Accounting program at the Maynooth University gain an excellent foundation in the management of organisations, as well as in financial analysis and the measurement of performance. Studying Business and Accounting together helps you develop an excellent set of technical accounting skills, coupled with a thorough appreciation of the world of business and management.

Accounting and finance need to support the implementation of a business strategy to create and capture value for and from customers. The Business element of this degree gives students an appreciation of the core functions of a business and how they interact to create and capture value.

To become a professional accountant, you need to successfully complete three levels of professional exams as well as on-the job training. If you successfully complete the BBS Business and Accounting, you will be exempt from the first level of these professional examinations (CAP 1 examinations from Chartered Accountants Ireland and equivalent examination papers from ACCA, CIMA and CPA professional accounting bodies).
