MSISS provides a base for following a remarkably wide range of careers within management consultancy, the financial services and several of the professions. In addition, MSISS graduates have pursued careers in information technology management, quality control, marketing and the civil service to name but a few. Some graduates have set up their own business. Others have chosen to pursue postgraduate study at Trinity and other universities at home and abroad.

Demand for MSISS graduates has always been steady as the wide ranging skill sets developed in the course of study together with the problem solving and team working skills are much sought after by employers. The combination of a high level of numeracy, good business awareness and fluency in the use of modern technology is a major attraction for employers in the 21st century.

Management Consultancy

MSISS graduates are particularly sought after by leading management consultancy firms. Over the years, the course has developed a strong alumni presence in many of these firms and graduates regularly return to recruit students to join their companies. Many MSISS graduates have gone on to senior positions in the consultancy industry.

Financial Services

MSISS graduates can be found in almost all aspects of modern financial services from derivatives trading to insurance and risk management. Many of these graduates work in London, New York and also in the IFSC here in Dublin.


Each year, a number of graduates go on to study accountancy with a smaller number to actuarial studies. Other graduates have qualified in specialised areas such as insurance and quality control.
