After The Crash: Does A Career In Finance Still Add Up?

Posted by Emma Henderson on 30 July 2014


We’re still feeling the effects of the financial crisis on the jobs market – but some of them could actually be working in your favour.

The jobs market might be tough in general, but as the Guardian tells us: ‘the outlook is particularly rosy for the finance sector, which is expecting to increase its graduate intake by an impressive 42%”.

To stay compliant – and in the black – companies must invest in their finance folk. And that’s good news for you, if you want a challenging, rewarding career in the financial industry.

Now, more than ever, companies across every sector require qualified finance professionals who are up-to -date and aware of the latest regulations, requirements and the new financial landscape.

Finance professionals are a critical, respected part of any organisation, across any sector. From accountancy to financial analysis, risk management or financial forecasting, there are significant and varied positions that companies are seeking to fill.

If you want to get ahead in finance, or are thinking about changing careers, NCI’s MSc in Finance is the perfect place to start. Ask our recent graduates, who are working in companies like AIB, Citi, State Street, Deloitte, KPMG and JP Morgan – many of which, rather handily, are NCI’s neighbours in the heart of the Irish Financial Services Centre.

Our Masters in Finance in Dublin is available over one-year full-time or two years, part-time, and will give you the highly-specialised, financial skill-set you’ll need to survive and thrive in today’s global financial industry. Check out the course content, see what our graduates have to say, or come visit us at our next Open Event at our IFSC Campus. To kickstart your career in finance, you can count on us.
