Course Description


The MB in Accounting is a challenging one-year taught programme aimed at preparing business graduates for entry into the accountancy profession. The programme is a fast track to a career in accountancy, earning generous exemptions from the professional institutes (for example Chartered Accountants Ireland offer successful graduates an exemption from the CAP 2 series of examinations).

On the programme, participants share experiences and knowledge to maximise learning. WIT prides itself on its staff/student interaction and the participatory and interactive learning model creates an exciting and stimulating environment. The intensive nature of the programme and its emphasis on teamwork means that one will learn not just with your class group or team, but from them as well.
