Níl aon chéim eile in Éirinn ar a múintear cúrsaí chomh sainiúil seo sa ghnó, sa bhainistíocht agus i dTeicneolaíocht na Faisnéise trí mheán na Gaeilge. Tá nasc idir an clár seo agus fostóirí náisiúnta agus idirnáisiúnta a thugann tús áite do chéimithe a bhfuil sárscileanna gnó agus IT acu agus ar ceannairí nuálacha iad.

Gheobhaidh tú oideachas leathan acadúil agus praiticiúil atá in oiriúint don saol comhaimseartha gnó. Beidh deis agat ina dhiaidh sin bliain a chaitheamh ar chlár INTRA nó dul ar aghaidh go dtí an bhliain dheireanach.

No other degree in Ireland offers such an advanced course of studies in business, management and information technology, taught through the Irish language. The programme is linked with national and international employers who favour graduates with superior business and IT skills who are also innovative leaders.  

This is a broad academic and practical education, suited to today's business environment. You’ll have the opportunity to test-drive your business skills with an optional one-year INTRA work placement before you enter your final year

Thaitin an cúrsa go mór liom, go háirithe na ranganna beaga. Ba dheis iontach í an taithí oibre agus d'fhoghlaim mé an-chuid i gcaitheamh na tréimhse sin. Tá meascán maith sa chéim idir cúrsaí Gaeilge, chúrsaí gnó agus Teicneolaíocht na Faisnéise. Bhain mé taitneamh agus tairbhe as an gcéim.

I really liked the course—the work experience was a great opportunity and I learned a lot during that period. There’s a good mix of Irish, business and information technology on the course. I enjoyed and benefited from the course in many ways - Caitríona Ní Mháille, BA GG

Caithfidh tú an Chéad agus an Dara bliain in DCU ag díriú ar na trí réimse seo go príomha:

  • Gnó agus Bainistíocht

  • Teicneolaíocht na Faisnéise sa Ghnó

  • Nua-Ghaeilge

Beidh deis agat ina dhiaidh sin bliain a chaitheamh ar chlár INTRA nó dul araghaidh go dtí an bhliain dheireanach.

Tá béim ar leith ar na réimsí seo a leanas: an gnó, an bhainistíocht, Teicneolaíocht na Faisnéise agus an Ghaeilge. Sa bhreise air sin bíonn modúil ar an mBainistíocht Straitéiseach, Bainistíocht Tionscadail agus Bainistíocht Acmhainní Daonna. Chomh maith leis sin forbróidh tú an tuiscint atá agat ar an nGaeilge agus cuirfidh tú le do chuid scileanna cumarsáide sa Ghaeilge labhartha agus scríofa.

Gheobhaidh tú taithí luachmhar ag obair ar thionscadail i ngrúpaí chomh maith le deis féinfhorbartha trí úsáid na samhlaíochta i gcomhthéacs cruthaitheach gnó.

You’ll spend Years One and Two of this course, in DCU, covering three main areas:

  • Business and Management

  • Business Information Technology

  • Modern Irish

There’s particular emphasis on business, management, information technology and Irish, supported by modules in Strategic Management, Project Management and Human Resources Management. You’ll also develop your understanding of Irish and further your communication skills in written and spoken Irish.

You’ll gain valuable experience working on group projects while also developing personally by using your imagination in a creative business context.
