This is an integrated course in the economics of business practice, which will provide you with understanding and experience of business practice from an economic perspective.
It will provide you with a foundation for understanding business practice and gaining the skills needed to work in a business environment. This stage takes place over nine months, and involves modules delivered around a conceptual focal point.
At the end of stage 1, you can progress to stage 2 (MBS in Economics of Business Practice). In order to progress to stage 2, you must achieve at least 60% in stage 1 and obtain an internship.
The course is both practical and research-orientated. You will be encouraged to reflect on your own learning and communication styles, and on your work in teams and in business. You will operate from a specially designed Business Practice Economics room and have unlimited and exclusive access to this facility during the academic year. To prepare you for a career in business we feel it is essential to maintain links with the business community. For this reason, engagement with the business community occurs, you will take part in on-site visits and you will have opportunities to engage with visiting speakers to UCC.
