UCD Business Courses
At UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business, we have made a strategic commitment to research, innovation and impact on business and society – and to transformational learning. We work to cultivate informed, connected, ethical global citizens – thinkers and doers. We are ambitious to recruit students who want to make a difference in the world, for the world.
Quinn is an environment where you will be challenged and supported as you build strong foundations of business knowledge, develop your capacities, and learn the skills of inquiry and ways of working that will help you to make that contribution. It is a place to expand your horizons, encounter diverse perspectives and experience new ways of thinking in a global classroom. It is a time where you can get to know yourself, learn to think, and build friendships and relationships that will support you throughout your life and career.
The Moore Centre for Business – our new wing of state of the art facilities is due to open in September 2019 – bringing a fresh canvas of alive learning spaces to the community at Quinn – ready for living, learning and working side by side as we collaborate to meet the future.
Why UCD Business?
- Accreditation: We are the only Irish business school accredited by both AACSB (the principal American accreditation) and EQUIS (the leading European accreditation). We are also a member of CEMS (an international alliance of leading business schools). This means that our degrees are internationally recognised and come with a mark of quality, which can give you advantages when looking for employment opportunities.
- International Opportunities: Our programmes offer you the opportunity to study abroad and experience the culture of countries such as France, Germany, China, Singapore, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
- Internship Programme: Within the Commerce, Economics and Finance, and Actuarial and Financial Studies programmes you can apply for a professional internship. This offers a first-class business experience with top international or Irish companies. Our students have completed internships in companies such as Google, Paddy Power, LinkedIn, Skype, Kerry Group and Bank of Ireland.
- Careers: Our curriculum is based upon research guided business education. You will learn the perfect balance of academic competency and practical business skills. Our links with top-tier business employers and our graduate employment or further study rate (98%) is a testament to the graduate outputs of our students.
First Year Experience in UCD Business
Our degrees have been developed in consultation with industry leaders and they reflect the changing business world. 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 not only your understanding of business theory and practices, but also the skills needed for a successful career. Employers seek graduates whose attributes include communication, management, leadership and team work skills, and 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.
Your first year experience can involve a lot more than study – you can also participate in extracurricular activities such as clubs and societies or volunteer in community projects. This is actively encouraged as it is seen as an important part of developing your skills, with the ultimate goal to help you build a successful business career.
You will be taught by Ireland’s leading business academics, and supported and guided through your studies by Peer Mentors, Student Advisers and a dedicated Business Programme team.
We welcome International students into a number of different programmes at the UCD Quinn School. The school has over 500 students from almost 50 nationalities on our programmes. Further details are available here.
