The world of business is ever evolving and UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business is evolving with it. Our up-to-date curriculum, new teaching facilities and world-class academics ensure that we will prepare you for your future… wherever you want it to take you .

UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business is Ireland's leading business school.

Accreditation: We are the only Irish business school accredited by both AACSB (the principal American accreditation) and EQUIS (the leading European accreditation). We are also a member of CEMS (an international alliance of leading business schools). This means that our degrees are internationally recognised and come with a guarantee of quality, which can give you advantages when looking for employment opportunities.

International Opportunities: You will have the opportunity to study abroad and experience the culture of countries such as Canada, America and Australia. In turn, this will improve your international business education in our Commerce, Commerce International and Economics & Finance degrees.

Internship Programme: Within the Commerce and Economics & Finance degrees you can apply for a one year professional internship. This offers a first-class business experience with one of the top international or Irish companies.

Careers: Our graduates are employed in and are even starting some of the world's best organisations. Of our 2011 graduates, only 3% remain seeking employment.
Our degrees have been developed following consultation with business leaders and they reflect the changing business world. During your first year you will learn about the foundations of business, how it works and its place in society. Most notably, with Commerce you will be supported to develop yourself personally and professionally around three keys areas: Innovation and Enterprise, Business in Society, and Personal Development.

Your first year experience can involve a lot more than study, you can also participate in extracurricular activities such as clubs and societies or involve yourself in community projects. This is actively encouraged as it is seen as an important part of your personal development, with the ultimate goal to help you build a successful business career.

You will be taught by a selection of Ireland’s leading business academics, and supported and guided through your studies by Peer Mentors, Student Advisors and a dedicated Business Programme Office.
