Why study International Business at UL?
The BA in International Business will provide you with a distinctive and challenging undergraduate experience. The programme is structured around a broad and flexible curriculum with subject choices that will help you to understand how business decisions are undertaken in a globalised world shaped by political, social and legal issues.
Under the ‘normal’ pathway, students spend years 1, 2 and 4 in UL. An international study/work placement in year 3 is a core part of the programme. This international experience will allow you to attend university in Europe, the US, Latin America, Asia or Australia. Having the chance to push your learning in a new environment is a challenging and exciting part of the programme.
In addition, students can avail of an amazing opportunity to earn a second degree from a leading international business school. Under this alternative ‘dual degree’ pathway, BA in International Business students spend their first two years studying in Limerick and their last two years studying at another Business School (while retaining an international work placement). Upon successful completion of their four years of study, students will receive both UL’s BA in International Business degree and an equivalent degree from the other business school.
