Most business graduates work in industrial and commercial enterprises in the accounting, financial services, marketing and administrative sectors. Some work with professionals in practice and proceed to membership of a relevant professional body.
Graduates can transfer to Bachelor and Bachelor (Honours) degree programmes at this or other colleges and universities in Ireland and elsewhere. Such transfers are dependent on results and on comparability of programme. Linkages with EU and US colleges also open up exciting possibilities for further study. Students who specialise in Information Systems Management during this programme are also eligible to transfer to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Information Systems Management in GMIT.
It is not necessary to have studied any business subject previously to pursue this programme. Students who wish to specialise in accounting, and who successfully complete the first two years of this programme (including specified accounting modules), may apply to transfer to year two of the Bachelor of Business (Honours) in Accounting programme. Students also have the option of studying in one of our European or American partner colleges for one semester or one academic year.
