DCU Business Courses Explained
Business Studies International
Studying a language along with your business degree is one of the most valuable things you can do in a world where business is ever more globally connected.
The Business Studies International degree is designed to create dynamic and resourceful business people who are confident working across cultures. You’ll study a range of business, language and cultural topics, and develop essential business skills in communication, information technology, teamwork, and problem solving—all vital for success in today’s global business environment.
You’ll also acquire proficiency in the foreign language of your choice (French, German, Spanish, Chinese or Japanese) and spend a year studying in a country where your chosen language is spoken.
We’re particularly proud of the calibre of our international exchange partners who rank among the top academic institutions in their respective countries.
The combination of business knowledge, language proficiency and cultural competence will make you stand out in the global workforce of today (in case you hadn’t heard, DCU is 19th in the world for our rate of graduate employment in the latest QS Employability report!).
