Business school, what business school? Faculty of Commerce which includes the Department of Management & Marketing and of Accounting, Finance & Information Systems.

I wouldn't say it is has any better or any worse a reputation than any other business/accounting courses in the country.

BSc Accounting is a handy three years.

Don't bold your posts please. They'll be read in normal font


My flatmate has just finished BIS, is seems to be a good course with good placement and good employment afterwards. It's a hybrid course so it doesn't tie you to either IT or Business, which is nice.

I very much agree with what nesf.

Also people seem to go to nice places on work placement.

Again, not speaking from personal experience, but there seemed to be a lot of corporate interest in the graduates this year. Many of them had jobs found before taking the final exams.

It seems like a good way into corporate work definitely. Whether one wants to do that kind of work is a seperate question altogether.

In comparisson, physics grads nearly all end up going into a postgrad. There are no Irish companies looking to hire people straight out of the degree.
