Course Description

Bachelor of Business (Honours) Business with Law

Historically, the disciplines of business and law have been closely associated in both the public and private sector. In the global economy, businesses deal with more complex issues concerning government regulations and international trade policies. Equally, legal expertise is required to contend with constantly evolving commercial organisations and business practices.

This four-year honours degree programme equips the student with a broad skill-base, enabling graduates to pursue careers across the spectrum of business and law.

The first two years provide the student with the basics in core law and business subjects with modules including: the Irish legal system; legal research and communications; business applications; quantitative techniques; economics; management; contract law; law of tort; management accounting; principles of marketing and more. Modules in the second two years develop the subjects in more detail and include: organisational behaviour; strategic human resource management; business finance; industrial relations; company and partnership law.

Students also have the opportunity to change specialism at the end of Year 2 and may transfer to any one of the Honours Business Degree programmes in the Faculty of Business & Humanities including: International Business; Marketing; Business; Human Resource Management; Supply Chain Management; Finance and Accounting.
