Two of top three places in Chartered Accountants Ireland Examinations to NUI Galway

Aisling Curtin (2nd place) and Sarah Finnegan (3rd place) secured two of the top three places in the Final Admitting Examination of Chartered Accountants Ireland in 2012. Both students completed their undergraduate degree (BComm) and postgraduate degree (Master of Accounting) in NUI Galway. They are now employed in KPMG, Galway.

Despite the current economic environment, the employment market for accounting graduates is excellent at present and 48.4% of all graduate jobs are in the Accountancy and Financial Management Sector, according to Gradireland 2012, graduate salary and recruitment trends survey.  Virtually all students on the Master of Accounting programme have secured employment before they finish the programme. The small class size on the Master of Accounting programme is ideal for developing excellent interpersonal skills and enabling an in-depth understanding of technical issues and alumni from the programme have been very successful over the years in professional accountancy examinations.
