Key Points

Write to us for more information

This program differs from other general business degrees in that it builds on the knowledge and skills necessary for data-informed decision making. In the first year, the student will gain a fundamental understanding of data collection and presentation, as they progress, they will learn to become more critical in their analysis, learn how this analysis is applied to decision making and business intelligence and by the final year they will confidently use modern tools and techniques to understand how quality data is used for predictive purposes.

Another reason for selecting this programme at IBAT College Dublin is the supportive college environment, the small class sizes and the college’s reputation for being responsive to students’ needs.

This program is designed for:

  1. prospective students who wish to pursue a career in business or management,
  2. those who intend to start their own business.
  3. those wishing to pursue a general higher education programme and develop industry-relevant skills, in a supportive academic environment.

Program content

The programme takes three years to complete on a full-time basis. Each academic year consists of 24 teaching weeks, 2 study weeks and 4 assessment weeks and is divided into two semesters. Students take 6 subjects (modules) per semester. Approximately 50% of the modules are examined by coursework and 50% by a combination of coursework and examination.

In the final year, you select a business topic of your own choice and undertake a project, this may be through research or alternatively through professional practice working on a real business problem with a company. The outcome of the project will be showcased at a presentation event attended by recruiters and employers.
