BComm (Hons) (International)




What will I learn?

Why is this course for me?

The BComm International (BCIT) combines a flexible business education from Ireland’s leading business school with the linguistic skills and a cultural understanding to succeed in the exciting world of international business.

Students of the BCIT course are well-grounded in the theory and practice of business management and equipped to understand and comment critically on business issues. This, coupled with the study of a chosen language and culture, gives graduates a unique competitive advantage in understanding the global business world. Languages include: Franch, German, Italian, Spanish and Chinese(Mandarin).

You’ll spend your third year abroad in one of our partner institutions studying through your chosen language. As Ireland’s number one business school, our international reputation means our partner universities are highly regarded destinations for your study.

What Will I Study

On applying you will select two languages to study and at the end of the first semester we offer a free choice as to which one to pursue as your language minor in the latter stages. With the exception of French (H4 requirement), you have the option to study these languages from beginner level. While the European options focus on language, literature and culture, the Chinese option encompasses Chinese language, culture, politics, law and society.

During the first two years, you’ll also receive a firm foundation in core business disciplines and language modules. Examples include:

First Year

  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Maths & Statistics
  • Organisational Behaviour
  • Business in Society
  • Language & Culture/Literature modules

Second Year

  • Managerial Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Human Resources
  • Management
  • Global Operations
  • Finance
  • Information & Communications Technology
  • Language & Culture/Literature modules.

Third & Fourth Years

The year studying abroad is an integral part of the BCIT programme, and you will spend the year studying abroad at one of our highly regarded international business school partners. With the European language minors, you will study business subjects through the chosen language for the year, while the Chinese minor involves one semester studying Chinese language and a second semester studying business through English. In the final year you will continue with your language studies, and in addition you can specialise in a particular business discipline (such

as Accountancy, Management, Marketing, Banking and Finance, MIS or HRM) or study a mix of business subjects.

Career & Graduate Study Opportunities

BComm International graduates find employment in the private, public and not-for-profit or NGO sectors, or set up their own companies. Many different career paths are available, and students who can combine an international language with a business qualification are highly employable graduates for multinational companies.
