Course Summary

Private College - additional fees apply. SUSI grants not available.

Students study common subjects in their first year. This honours degree course offers students considerable flexibility in their choice of second and third year subjects. As the course progresses, the emphasis shifts from foundation knowledge to in-depth study of particular areas of the major disciplines. 

This three-year degree aims to give students a strong base of business knowledge combined with a solid grounding in business and company law as well as criminal and commercial law. Students study both major business disciplines and more specialised areas of the legal and regulatory environment of business. Throughout the programme, particular emphasis will be placed upon the many areas of overlapping business and legal interest, such as the structure of companies, company law and consumer law.

The Student - Career Interests

This course is typically suited for people with the following Career Interests. If these interests do not describe you, this course may prepare you for work you may not find satisfying.

Enterprising

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and are drawn to commerce, trade and making deals. Some pursue sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Career Progression

A range of employment opportunities are possible in areas such as marketing, sales, operations, information technology, finance and general management.

The structure and content of this degree and stream enables students to progress to a career where a sound knowledge of relevant law is a definite asset. For example, many large organisations have legal departments, where comprehensive business knowledge augmented by a solid foundation in legal principles is required.

Graduates from this programme will also be well placed to pursue a business career in areas where legal knowledge is highly relevant – for example, human resource management, finance, purchasing, compliance and contracts.
