Students are registered to two modules. Classes for these modules take place in week one, the Friday of week four and final assessment in week eight. All students register to the Academic Internship Project module, SBUS30030. Students then have the option of registering to one of three modules:
- Ireland: From Union to Bailout an Economic and Social History Since 1800 - SBUS30060
- Doing Business in Ireland – BMGT30280
- Business Analytics and Finance Project – MIS30090
Class takes place from June 09th to June 14th inclusive. You also have class on Friday June 27th. Your presentation dates and final submissions take place from Monday, July 28th to Thursday July 31st. You will receive pre-readings from your lecturers three weeks prior to the beginning of your programme.
|Week 1-2||Orientation & Academic Classes|
|Week 2-7||Professional Internship placement in Dublin, Monday-Thursday, approx. 32 hours/week|
|Week 8||Complete Internship and presentation of research paper at UCD|
Students are assessed in both of their academic modules. Assessment may include group work, presentations, assignments, exams and project components. Assessment is also included with compulsory attendance at your academic class. Participation is also essential in the assessment criteria. You will receive pre-readings from your lecturers three weeks prior to the beginning of your programme. At the end of the programme the student should have an in-depth knowledge of the area and business in which they are placed.
We would recommend that 3 US credits are awarded for both modules offered in this programme. Each module is worth 5 ECTS. The students’ home institution decides on credits to be awarded. We will be pleased to provide full information to enable institutions to make decisions regarding the transfer of credits. UCD will send an official transcript to the home institution approximately six weeks after the completion of the programme.
