Undergraduate
BComm (Hons) Commerce International

University College Dublin

Course Overview


To achieve a truly global perspective on business, it is necessary to immerse yourself in the culture, and not just learn the vocabulary.

Students of the BCIT course are well-grounded in the theory and practice of business management and equipped to understand and comment critically on business issues. Students are brought to a high level of language proficiency and cultural sensitivity which enables them to live abroad for a year and to study business through their chosen language. While this immersive experience is a demanding challenge, education experts have shown that these multicultural competencies are strongly linked with innovative thinking and creative performance.
