Published on: Monday, 21 July 2014

The School of Business at Cork Institute of Technology is delighted to announce that it has launched a Bachelor of Business (Honours) in International Business with Language which will be available for applicants for September 2014. Applications can now be made for this innovative programme.

The programme is a 4 year full-time course entailing a placement opportunity as well as a weeklong study trip and an innovative seminar series. Speaking of its launch, Dr. Pio Fenton, Head of Department of Marketing & International Business said “This is a very exciting opportunity that is a direct response to industry demand. We know that there is a shortage of business graduates in Ireland who have the ability to speak a foreign language. The opportunities for graduates with those skills are enormous.” The programme can be taken with French, German or Spanish provided you have studied the relevant language at leaving certificate and meet the specific criteria.

The programme prepares students for the modern workplace with a distinct emphasis on the global business environment, business development and marketing.  Entailing a 6 month overseas placement Dr. Fenton highlights the opportunities for those that have worked or studied abroad: “Employers will look at the CV of someone that has studied abroad and know that such a candidate is open-minded, adaptable and experienced. In this respect, a graduate of this programme has distinctiveness in the jobs market subsequently.”

  • Applications can be made online now in advance of Leaving Certificate results as admission to the programme is by direct entry this year.  Details can be found at course/CRBIBLA8
