Bachelor of Commerce International

Students on the BCIT programme study a core set of business modules. The business modules cover quantitative skills such as Economics and Finance, Accounting, Maths and Data Analysis. Students also develop their understanding of the softer skills required in the business world by studying how organisations work, how business works in society and the effects of culture on business practices. These modules are delivered by lecturers who are active in the research and practice of specific business subject areas.

The language modules cover linguistics, literature and culture equipping students with the critical analysis skills vital to any career. In year 4 students can select specialist options from business subject areas such as Accounting, Banking & Finance, IR & HR, Management, Management Information Systems or Marketing.

Studying abroad is a wonderful opportunity for you to develop linguistic skills and enhance your understanding of the international business environment. It improves employment opportunities and is a great way to meet new friends and experience different cultures and languages. The academic year abroad is an integral part of the BCIT Degree, studying business and language. You will also follow UCD online modules specifically designed to enhance and understand their experiences while abroad. You will return to UCD for your final year, after what we hope is a great personal experience. We find that students are more independent and self-confident, having developed a great set of inter-cultural communication skills.  Learn more here.
