Welcome to the Department of Business
Our practical hands-on work placements give students the skills they’ll need in the working world. We have strong connections to industry giving you the opportunity to work on real projects for a variety of organisations. We want to challenge you to reach your full potential in our supported learning environment and leave as a proud, confident graduate.
The Department of Business offers a variety of entry routes to a BBS (Hons) degree, allowing direct entry to our 4 year programme, or via the ‘ladder system’ at levels 6 or 7, with progression to an add-on year to complete the level 8 qualification. This provides flexibility in your approach to study and ensures that you can achieve your qualification in a manner that meets your needs. We also offer programmes that lead to a BA (Hons) qualification in 3 years. These are in the areas of Accounting, Business and ICT and Insurance Practice.
What type of student are you?
Business appeals to a broad range of students who may have an interest in how organisations work, the economy and business environment, accounting, finance or enterprise. If you are innovative or creative and can use your skills for problem solving or decision making, you will enjoy the challenges and dynamic learning environment of a Business programme.
Meet the Head of Department
In my role as Head of Department of Business, I lead academic programme development and management, with oversight of all aspects of QA and student experience. I previously held the role of Assistant Registrar in IT Sligo, with responsibility for Institute quality assurance and enhancements. I have extensive lecturing experience in higher education, with a focus on strategic management, leadership, small business development and community engagement. I have held consultancy roles in project management, with experience of managing international collaborations and cross-disciplinary partnerships.
I am actively engaged in research into persistence and retention in higher education in Ireland, with a focus on the Institute of Technology sector. I am completing a Doctorate in Education in Trinity College Dublin and have been able to incorporate my research into practice, to inform programme design which supports student engagement and learning. Prior to working in education, I held project management, marketing and business development roles in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in the UK.
