Course Description

POSTGRADUATE DIPLOMA IN ACCOUNTING



The Post-Graduate Diploma in Accounting (PDA), which has been running in GMIT since 2010, is designed to fast-track graduates who wish to pursue careers in Accountancy or Taxation. It is a one year conversion programme aimed at non-accounting graduates from disciplines such as Arts, Computers, Education, Engineering, and Science. Business or Commerce graduates, who have not majored in Accountancy, may also find the programme beneficial. The PDA is a dedicated post-graduate course. The small class size facilitates greater interaction for students with lecturers who are experts in their respective fields; this results in an excellent learning environment.
