Business with Chinese

An excellent business education coupled with the international experiences and language capabilities of a BCIT (Chinese) student is a good mix for employment prospects. In your final year you will chose business modules from the area of your choice and this will have a major bearing on your career path. A number of our graduates return to China to further their career or education. Other graduates gain employment with multinationals or Irish organisations with international operations, especially with China.

Law and Chinese

China is now the biggest trading nation in the world, and has been Ireland's largest trading partner in Asia since 2006 and is expected to become Ireland's fourth biggest trading partner by 2030. Thus, there is and will continually be a high demand for legal service for the increasing two way trade and investment between Ireland and China.
Graduates obtain a recognised degree in Irish law and are also particularly well placed to pursue legal careers with:

  • International law firms
  • European and international institutions
  • Chinese institutions
  • NGOs

BCL (Law & Chinese Studies) graduates may wish to pursue further studies, including: LLM Human Rights Law, LLM Commercial Law, LLM Intellectual Property & Information Technology Law, all in UCD Sutherland School of Law. Law schools in China also provide excellent graduate programmes.
