THE FUTURE is bright for young accountant Darren Fegan who graduates today with an MSc in Advanced Accounting from the University of Ulster at Jordanstown.
Darren was also awarded the Chartered Accountants Ulster Society prize for achieving first place overall in the examinations.
In September 2010, Newry man Darren took up a position of Trainee Accountant with FPM Accountants.
FPM’s Managing Partner, Feargal McCormack said, "I am delighted with Darren's achievement – which is not surprising as he had proven himself to be an exemplary student during his summer work placements in FPM.
"FPM will continue to be fully supportive of the MSc in Advanced Accounting programme, having recruited many students of a very high calibre over the years."
The future is certainly bright for these accounting students, who have all successfully completed an MSc in Advanced Accounting, a prestigious postgraduate programme at the University of Ulster, which attracts high calibre accounting graduates from Northern Ireland and elsewhere in the UK.
"Darren is now one step closer to becoming a qualified Irish Chartered Accountant," added Helen Fee, Course Director.
"This has been one of our largest cohorts in recent years and I am delighted that, given the current economic climate, nearly all of the students on the MSc in Advanced Accounting programme (over 90%) have secured training contracts with accountancy firms in Ireland.
"These are the accountants and decision makers of the future and I wish them every success."
