Graduate Stories

Accounting Graduate - David Moore

The Bachelor of Business (Hons) in Accounting provided me with an excellent base to pursue a career in accounting. The subjects were very practical, focusing both on the requirements of the professional accountancy bodies as well as the requirements of accountancy firms and industry. In addition to studying core accountancy subjects I studied practical modules such as Computerised Accountancy Packages, Information Technology and Professional Development which have helped me enormously upon my entry to the work place.

In July 2012, I commenced work with Russell Brennan Keane Accountants in Roscommon. I am currently based in the insolvency department working mainly on receiverships and liquidations. The transition from being a student to a trainee accountant was made a lot easier due to the excellent
teaching received in GMIT.

As GMIT receives the maximum number of exemptions from ACCA, it meant I only had five exams to complete after my degree. I am currently in the process of sitting these exams. Also, the programme is so well recognised by employers that I secured my job half way through my final year in college. This meant I did not have to worry about seeking employment after my degree. I had it all organised months before I
finished which enabled me to concentrate on my final year exams. I would strongly recommend GMIT as a place to further your education.
