Career Guidance & Counselling
Business @ IADT Dun Laoghaire
1. Small Class Sizes.
Typical class sizes range from 30 to 40 students. This means that lecturers can work with students on an individual basis. Our lecture halls do not facilitate the merging of large classes.
2. Most Assessment is Continuous.
Continuous assessment means that students get feedback on a regular basis. This also gives students a chance to improve. Over 80% of assessment is continuous.
3. Learning is Applied to Real Life.
Providing students with opportunities to put their learning into practice is important to us. Students get real-life opportunities with stalls (year 1), the practice of selling (year 2), work placement (years 2 & 3), social enterprise practice (year 3) and integrated case studies (year 4). Photo is of Gerry Diver on work placement with Coca Cola, Pakistan.
4. Stable Experienced Teaching Team.
Our committed teaching team has over 100 years' business experience across a range of industries in the USA, Germany, Hong Kong, Holland, Canada, the UK et al. Lecturers are adept at helping students to link their learning across subjects to avail of business opportunities.
5. Our Graduates.
The ultimate test of any degree programme is the quality of its graduates. We are immensely proud of our graduates. They are thriving in a wide range of industries across the globe. We will feature a selection of our graduates in future newsletters.
