Hello!

I am going to apply to Msc Accounting and Finance Management programme. I would be grateful if you could give me feedback.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

I studied a Bachelor's degree in Accounting. During the undergraduate degree I took a variety of subjects in taxes, finance, auditing, economics, accounting and business management. Taking a variety of subjects in university allowed me to see where my interests and strengths lie.

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.

I suggest that you emphasize your reasons for wanting to shift into the field of finance (or financial management) having already studied accounting and worked as an accountant. Your long-term goal of being a controller only appears in the fifth paragraph.

Except for this key sentence which indicates that you want to go beyond accounting, the first half of your essay is about your past accounting experience:
Karls Mtz:
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".

Rewritten: As part of my desire to expand my knowledge from accounting to business management, I wrote my final-year dissertation on "How far proper management (can) lead your business to success."
What was the most significant conclusion of your thesis? What specifically do you mean by "proper" management??
I think "studied" is better than "took"

But I also think you should add a sentence to the beginning to introduce your theme... do not just start by telling the reader that you studied these subjects; hook the reader's interest with an unexpected first sentence. Perhaps you should make a bold assertion! Then, make this sentence number 2:

I studied a variety of subjects pertaining to taxes, finance, auditing, economics, accounting and business management. Studying a variety of subjects in university allowed enabled me...

"How far proper management lead your business to success" This title should have all capital letters when you use it in this essay. Also, check the words; this title does not seem correct. It should be like this, i think:
"How Far Proper Management Can Lead Your Business into Success"

It seems very broad, too. I wonder if I might not understand correctly. What was your paper about?

The sentence is also wrong. Don't start a sentence with "Which" unless the sentence is a question:
As part of my desire effort to have a broad knowledge in business management, I wrote the final-year dissertation focused on this field, and it was entitled, ....

:-)
