Andrea Brogan, Graduate 2009


I completed the honours degree in Accountancy in GMIT 2009. I found the course challenging but rewarding. I found GMIT itself had a great learning and friendly environment. The lecturers in GMIT are very


supportive and go out of their way to help you. This course gives you a great insight if you wish to pursue a career in accounting. GMIT are in continuous communication with the professional accounting bodies and this is to ensure that the course is conducted to meet their requirements for professional exams.


As result of the different modules in GMIT, my team-working and communication skills improved through many projects and presentations – I now use these skills on a daily basis. I am working in industry as a result of my employer coming to the Careers Fair in GMIT and I am currently studying for my professional exams with ACCA.


Tara Lavin Graduate 2011


I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Degree in Accounting from GMIT in 2010. I really loved that course and found the study environment in GMIT conducive to exam success. The introduction of the


ACCA Professional Exams as a postgraduate course at GMIT gave me the opportunity to continue my education in familiar surroundings.


I found the jump from degree to professional level a big challenge, but the lecturers were very helpful and supportive. Having passed my first two exams in December, I was invited to interview for Deloitte in Dublin. The fact that I was sitting my professional exams at the time was a major advantage and led to me being offered a training contract with Deloitte. In June I was successful in passing the remaining three exams and became an ACCA affiliate.


James Marshall-Hughes, Graduate 2007


I graduated from GMIT Galway in 2007 with first class honours – Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Information Systems Management. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a


GMIT student. Not only did I gain valuable knowledge and skills which have served me well in the diverse world of Information Technology but my development was channelled by the expert and industry-experienced lecturing staff.


I have spent the last three years working for Hewlett-Packard in their IT division. After a stint in application support, I have moved on to become a team lead for a global incident management unit. In this arena not only do I get to use the technical skills I have developed, but also I utilise my business process knowledge and presentation skills.


My time in GMIT gave me a great grounding in Information Systems. I would recommend both the course, and GMIT as a whole to anyone wishing to further their education and career opportunities.

Completing my ACCA Professional exams in one year is my biggest achievement to date. I can now concentrate fully on my new role as a trainee accountant in the Small and Medium Enterprise Department with Deloitte. I have the added advantage of being able to adapt to a new city and a new job without the pressure of studying in the evenings and at weekends.
