Course Description

Finance



Please note due to the great demand for our programmes early applications are assessed when received and dealt with promptly. Therefore it is advisable to make early applications for an early response. If you do not yet have your final degree results this will not hinder your application as we are happy to issue conditional offer letters in such circumstances.

This programme will be offered on a full-time basis (mid-September to end May). It is designed for honours (2H2 or higher) graduates of disciplines other than Finance. It is a conversion programme and no previous knowledge of finance is required or assumed.

It is aimed at those who may wish to pursue careers in the Financial Services Sector in Ireland and internationally. The Expert Group on Future Skills Needs in its 2007 report has identified this sector as having a shortage of skilled staff and as a result this programme was developed to enable graduates to develop the skills to work in this exciting market. The programme also acts as a qualifier for postgraduate programmes at Masters level in Finance and allied disciplines.
