Interested in studying Accounting and Finance but wondering what the career prospects are like? Meet NCI final year student Laura Kelly, who recently secured herself a graduate role with PWC.

Speaking about her time at National College of Ireland Laura told us how the careers team at NCI played a significant role in her efforts to secure a graduate role after college.

If you have questions about studying the MBA with us, come to our Taste of an MBA event from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday 15th August to attend a mini lecture and meet current students and graduates: Each year at National College of Ireland we meet people at our open information evenings that are thinking about doing the MBA.  They have heard it’s a well-regarded qualification, they want to take the next step in their career and they are often looking to get the broader more holistic or “CEO” perspective on the business. But at the same time they often have doubts.  Will everyone in the class already be a leader, a captain of industry?  Will I be out of my depth? What will the people in the programme be like and will I learn from them?
