What is the Course about?

This three-year degree course equips students with a broad skill-base ensuring graduates have a wide range of career options. The first two years provide students with a foundation in business and subjects are common for all students. After two years, students separate into their chosen specialist area from a choice of five areas:

  • Business Management (BMT)
  • Human Resource Management (HRM)
  • International Business (INT)
  • Supply Chain Management (SCM)
  • Marketing (MKT)

By choosing “CEY” Common Entry applicants apply for a place on the course but postpone their choice of business speciality until the end of Year 2. This allows students time to explore the future career choices open to graduates in the different specialism streams. Expert guidance will be available from lecturing staff and ultimate choices can then be considered in light of academic performance across a range of business subject areas.

Special Features:

  • Work Placement is an integral part of the course in Year 3. 
  • Exit award – Higher Certificate in Business (NFQ Level 6) after Year 2.
