First Year Experience in UCD Business

During your first year, you will learn about the foundations of business, and will be challenged to think critically about its role in society. You will develop your understanding of business theory and practices, and the skills needed for a successful career.

Employers seek graduates with excellent communication, management, leadership and team-work skills, graduates who are problem solvers, independent thinkers and ethically minded. Our courses use business simulations, case studies, presentations, web and blog development and video projects to develop graduates with these attributes.

You will also have ample opportunity to pursue your academic and personal passions through extracurricular activities in clubs and societies, volunteer in community projects or start your own initiative. We actively encourage you to embrace this as an important part of developing your skills, with the ultimate goal to help you build a successful career in business and beyond.
