This course offers both the professionally focused, practical study of accountancy, combined with a wide ranging exploration of key contemporary business topics.  


At some stage, all organisations must present their performance in the form of financial statements. They must also be able to analyse performance from the figures before them.

The study of accountancy enables you to acquire the skills necessary for the preparation and, more importantly, the interpretation of such financial statements. Following the common first year structure, you will learn the basics of financial and management accounting from the standpoint of both practical skills and reflection. You then build on these basic skills with a range of specific accounting and related options, such as Business Taxation, Corporate Reporting and Management Accounting.


The study of business provides a detailed understanding of the way organisations work, how they operate within their specific environment and the impact on individuals working within them.

This pathway develops a general knowledge of business to complement a more specialised area of study. Modules introduce key themes, specifically, business operations (how it works) and entrepreneurship (creating opportunity within a competitive environment).

You learn how to apply business theory, identify types of business opportunity and address a range of business issues in an imaginative way. Investigating the issues confronting individuals within a business, you will develop an awareness of the problems businesses can face in general, and be able to identify a number of possible responses.

Key Facts

If the figures tell you a story no one else can see, you're in a position to potentially save a business and set it on the right track. That's power. The accountancy pathway shows you how some of it could be yours.

Molnar Business School is one of only a small number of institutions granted status as a Platinum Approved learning partner by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) for its professional accountancy tuition programmes.

Recognised and valued by employers, this accolade is the highest level awarded by the ACCA. It means that you will study the Accountancy pathway in a professional, progressive environment.

Through the Business pathway, the course gives you the confidence to effectively apply business theory and practical techniques in order to address complex business issues in constructive ways.

Additionally, the Joint Honours degree portfolio benefits from a practice-based learning approach which is encouraged by the common first year structure.

During your first year, you participate in the practice of an integrated business plan which stretches across several business subject areas. You gain, develop and utilise subject knowledge including finance, human resources and marketing, and apply this to a real business problem.

You and your team then 'pitch' your plan in front of experts from industry in the style of 'Dragons' Den', and you could win €1,000 for your team to develop your business plan further during the rest of the year.

The choice and monitoring of an international share portfolio also allows you to bring financial markets to life, with a cash prize of €500 awarded to the student who makes the greatest return on their capital investment.
