DCU Accounting Graduates Take Top Places in the Professional Accounting and Taxation Examinations
22nd August 2022: We were delighted to host a prize-winning lunch for some graduates of both our BA in Accounting and Finance and our MSc in Accounting to celebrate their fantastic achievements in the Final Admitting Examinations (FAE) of Chartered Accountants Ireland and the Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA) examinations of the Irish Tax Institute.
Caroline Kealey was placed first in the 2020 FAE examinations and was awarded the Ulster Society Diamond Jubilee Award. Caroline was also placed second in the 2021 CTA examinations.
Mary McCabe was placed first in the 2021 FAE examinations and was awarded the Ulster Society Diamond Jubilee Award.
Both Caroline and Mary were also awarded the Institute’s prestigious Gold Medal, an award only granted 25 times over the last 131 years.
We were also joined on the day by Daniel Maguire who was placed joint-eight in the 2021 FAE examinations.
Speaking about their achievements Programme Chair (MSc in Accounting) Dr Julie Bertz said:
“Lecturing gives me many wonderful occasions and one of my favourites is catching up with our alumni. Today, Professor Barbara Flood and I had a delightful afternoon marking Caroline, Mary and Daniel’s outstanding examinations successes. It was a pleasure to spend time with them. We know the future of accounting and tax is bright in their hands. These accountants “don’t count the days” they “make the days count” (Muhammad Ali) and all of us here in DCU Business School feel privileged to have been an integral part of their early accounting days.”
Congratulations to all!
