The Student Experience

Shedrack Alli

When choosing a course to study, I really wanted to broaden my knowledge of business, while getting hands-on experience during my college years.

Studying Commerce has allowed me to gain a deeper knowledge of business and has helped identify special areas of interest to me. By studying in the Quinn School, I was able to take part in case competitions for KPMG and the Financial Times, and I have been given the opportunity to complete internships for both KPMG and Microsoft, which has given me the opportunity to put to use what I have learned in real-world scenarios.

I would recommend Commerce to anyone that wants to enhance their knowledge of business while getting the experience that can propel them beyond their undergraduate degree.

Nicole Matko

After attending the UCD Open Day, I knew UCD was where I wanted to pursue my further studies. The atmosphere on campus was buoyant and listening to academics speak about Commerce was eye opening. Hearing the vast array of opportunities for students is what made me apply. From the choice of completing a year-long paid internship, completing a semester abroad and being taught a  wide array of modules by leading academics influenced my decision to place Commerce at the top of my CAO application. The UCD Quinn School has helped me work for a year in HR for a renowned construction company, be involved in the wider UCD community, meet amazing mentors and build the path towards my future career.

Andy Lynch

UCD Quinn School and the internship programme gave me the opportunity to explore different business disciplines and gradually decide where I wanted to focus my time and early career. I work in marketing now, I benefit daily from the rounded business education I received at Quinn, especially given the fast paced, cross-team nature of my current role. A Commerce degree sets you up to be adaptable and that's enormously valuable in today's work environment.

Alli Donaghy

I picked Commerce at UCD because I wanted to study at Ireland's best business university. The programme is globally recognised and allowed me to develop my business acumen. Studies are tailored to your own interests by final year. Lectures are engaging and most assessments mirror the world of work: projects in small groups. My favourite modules included Green Ventures, Global Development and Digital Marketing. The programme instils the idea that business can (and should) be a force for good. There are many opportunities to get stuck in, in group projects, in societies and living on campus at UCD. My time at UCD Quinn set me up for my career in marketing. I would highly recommend Commerce at UCD to anyone considering their options.
