Academic Component:

Academic Component:

Students are registered to two modules/classes. All students register to the Academic Internship Project module, SBUS30030. Students then have to register for one other module from a choice of three: Ireland: From Union to Bailout an Economic and Social History Since 1800 or Doing Business in Ireland or Business Analytics and Finance Project. The option you select on application is what you are registered to study. Each module is awarded 5 ECTS which we recommend translate to 3 US credits. The programme is therefore 6 credits.

This series of excursions is funded and coordinated by the Lochlann Quinn School of Business to enable you to explore and immerse yourself in Irish culture. Attendance at the trips is at your discretion however you are encouraged to sign up to an extensive series of excursions and field trips in Dublin and around Ireland. This will give you a first hand experience of the historic and cultural sites that surround you.
