Aoibheann, from Portumna, County Galway, credits UL for fostering her business acumen and drive to enact change. She studied the Bachelor of Arts in Law and Accounting, a course she describes as cultivating a good grounding in the principles of businesses and law. Not just purely theoretical, the degree course involved a work experience module which she took up at JP Morgan in London.“The CoOp placement was extremely valuable in giving us practical and really good quality work experience.”
Aoibheann worked as part of the environmental and social risk management team within the investment bank in 2009, securing a place on their graduate programme.
