Liam Pierce, Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting Graduate

"This programme has been a tremendous experience. The class was incredibly diverse, and I’ve made friends with people from around the world. The lecturers on the programme are first class, very approachable and each one has their own unique career background. The Business School also hosted many events to help with our careers: CV workshops, interview practice sessions and other seminars. Another highlight was getting involved in Trinity’s Student Managed Investment Fund as an analyst."
