BSc Business and Management (TU903) is the largest undergraduate Level 8 business degree in the College of Business at TU Dublin.

The first two years are designed to provide a solid foundation in the fundamental disciplines in business – accounting, economics, quantitative methods, management, marketing, human resources and operations. This approach allows students to get a taste of the different aspects of business in the first half of their degree. Using the core knowledge acquired in the first two years of study, in Years 3 and 4 students can choose from a wide range of optional advanced modules allowing them to specialise in one of the major business disciplines.

While Business and Management is the largest business degree in TU Dublin, lectures and tutorials are delivered in small class sizes to facilitate greater interaction and active learning. A diverse range of teaching approaches are adopted including formal lectures with tutorial support, business case-study analysis, debates, role play, industry project work, charity events, simulation exercises, networking events and in-company internship. Of particular note is the opportunity for students to take part in both national and international business strategy case study competitions in the final year of the course.
