Life after graduation
New research has shown that former accounting students at the University of Ulster are managing to find graduate jobs just six months after they leave.
Dr Gillian Armstrong, acting head of accounting in the Ulster Business School, which conducted the report, said that four out of five of the university's 2009 alumni have found a graduate job.
Speaking at the accounting department's annual prize giving ceremony, which awards the best-performing students, Dr Armstrong said the university's links with local businesses was one reason for the success of its graduates.
"Together, through working on programme design, on providing placement opportunities and in support of student prizes, we can effectively promote employability and the provision of professional education for professional life," she said.
IFCFeed.com recently reported that accounting firm KPMG is proving its commitment to graduate job hunters by taking on eight university leavers at its Jersey offices.
