Business Administration

Course Structure

Course Overview

The aim of the Business Administration course is designed to make a transition to a Level 6, 7 or 8 Business Degree course easier. The modules on this course have been selected with this in mind.

Past students have said “progression to NCI, DIT or DCU, was much smoother than expected” as many of the modules are tailored to help students adapt to Higher Education.

Students on this course enjoy extra curricular activities and events, linked with some of their modules. These events are organised in the college and also outside activities. Students will have opportunities to develop skills such as teamwork, communications and time management.
