About

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 age 30. It's also home to several European headquarters for Google, Facebook, and many 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 participate in an internship, you will connect with the city and the culture in a very tangible way.

Housing & Meals

Housing is provided in comfortable, well-equipped apartments in Dublin. Locations vary throughout the city based on your course choices. 

Apartments will house four to six students and include furnished bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry. Meals are not included, but each apartment has a full kitchen as well as numerous pubs and cafés within a short walk.

Academics

There are two tracks on this program: the University College Dublin track and the general Business in Dublin track. Students on both tracks will take the core course, Engaging Ireland: Past, Present, & Future. This course will give context to the Irish culture through thematic topics such as religion, politics, education, diversity, economics, sports, and literature. The core course will involve study tours around Dublin and Ireland to bring the course content to life.

For more detailed academic information, visit the Carlson Global Institute Business in Dublin webpage.

University College Dublin Track

This track is offered fall and spring semester, and is designed for juniors and seniors. You will enroll directly at the Quinn School of Business at University College Dublin, a highly ranked business school.

The Centres for Academic Programmes Abroad (CAPA) provides housing, program classrooms and study areas. CAPA also arranges on-site orientation and program excursions, as well as social and cultural events. Classes are taught by local faculty who are specialists in their academic field and in the field of teaching foreign students.

Excursions

Excursions around Dublin are included in both the semester and the summer programs. This could include a night at the theater, a visit to a museum, or a walking tour of a neighborhood. The summer term will include one day-trip outside of Dublin.

During the semester, 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.
