The subjects that grabbed my attention during the final year in the university were taxation, business management and finance. It was through doing these subjects that I discovered I would like to pursue my career in either of these fields. As part of my desire to have a broad knowledge in business management, I wrote the final-year dissertation focused on this field. Which was titled "How far proper management lead your business to success". In July 2007, I was hired by one of the big four accountancy firms, where I develop an employment as tax consultant.
Through this job, I have understood the important role played by the accountancy in business. Definitely book-keeping, preparing financial statements, establishing and maintaining accurate financial records provide a general overview of how business is doing. In my experience I have realized that accountants specialized in taxation besides technical-legal knowledge, they must have wide knowledge of accounting and its procedures as well as theory to properly evaluate financial information.
With this knowledge the consultants must be able to ensure if records are accurate according with government regulations, identify companies' opportunities and provide advice on improving efficiency. The reasons mentioned above besides my long-term goal to pursue a career as a controller encourage me to seek for a professional accounting and finance management program, which allow me to obtain the ability to effectively analyze accounting records, interpret financial statements as well as acquired a wide overview regarding management functions within an organization.
Selecting a graduate school is not an easy task; there are certain aspects to look at while considering a school. After comparing some accounting and finance programs provide by Dublin universities. I found the MSC at Griffith College like the one that meet my academic and professional goals. Other reasons to choose this colleges are: its prestige, it is recognized as one of the top private universities in Dublin, program' structure which fully meets my academic and professional objectives, the subjects that caught my attention are: international financial management.
I am certain that the MSC in accounting and finance management provided by Griffith College will provide a lot of advantages besides helping me to achieve my academic and professional objectives, such as: improve foreign language skills, opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds, exposure to new learning environments, cultures, obtain an international perspective and by this way understand other points of view, enhance future job prospects. I am certain that the wide knowledge that the Msc in accounting and finance management provides, will give me with the necessary tools to succeed in my career.
