Ciara Long, Graduate

"Business Management allowed me to develop a very broad skill set, including the ability to conduct interviews, be interviewed, confidence in public speaking, organisation and planning. The content and span of modules helped me to develop the passion for my subject and left me knowledgeable in a variety of business-related disciplines, e.g. Computer Software, Supply Chain Management, Innovation etc. This was very appealing to employers and secured me an internship straight out of college, which led to a permeant public sector job in one of Ireland’s utility companies. This gave me a year of real-world experience which is invaluable to my teaching now.

The people I met while at TU Dublin are friends for life. There is a real sense of community and belonging on campus. It’s the perfect place for guided education, which will boost your employment opportunities while also allowing for self-discovery. I liked that the lecturers where friendly, approachable and helpful throughout. The course itself was diverse and included an array of modules helpful to life in a business and now, as a teacher.

I cannot stress enough the sense of community at TU Dublin. As someone who struggled with the transition from post-primary to higher education TU Dublin was perfect for me. The lecturers where approachable and committed to giving practical education while also supporting you in whatever way you required”.
