About This Program
Once a Viking settlement, and with most of its architecture dating to the 18th Century, Dublin is a city rich with history and culture. Now, Dublin is known as one of Europe's most youthful cities, with more than 40% of its population under the age of 30. It is also home to several European headquarters for businesses such as Google, Facebook and many other startups. The mix of rich traditions and youthful energy comes alive through music, theatre, and sports.
The Business in Dublin program offers courses that allow you to stay on track with your business degree. Through courses taught by local professors, and the opportunity to do an internship, you will connect with the city and the culture in a very tangible way.
Housing is provided in comfortable, well-equipped apartments in central Dublin. Students will find out their housing location and roommates about 2 weeks prior to departure.
Apartments will house 4 to 6 students, which include furnished bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry. Meals are not included, but each apartment has a full kitchen. There are also numerous pubs and cafes within a short walk from the residence.
Cultural excursions around Dublin and Ireland will be included in the program fee. In Dublin, this could include a visit to a local business, a viewing of the Book of Kells, an outing to a sporting event, etc.
There will be two main excursions outside of Dublin: one to Western Ireland and one to Northern Ireland. The visit to Western Ireland will give you a sense of life in the country and could include places like Galway, County Clare, the Cliffs of Moher, and the Aran Islands. The visit to Belfast in Northern Ireland will help to explain The Troubles, a conflict that lasted until 1998, and still has impacts on the community today.
