Cork University Business School brings together the expertise of five business departments coordinated through the Business School Office.
As a fundamental discipline to practice and research in business and policy, the Department of Economics contributes to a range of teaching and research programmes at CUBS. At undergraduate level these include the BComm suite, BSc (Hons) Finance, and BA. In supporting the University’s internationalisation strategy the Department has developed partnerships with many Chinese universities and its international student cohort accounts for over 10% of Economics students.
The teaching and research of the Department is organised around three thematic academic groups.
The Department provides a range of research-based and practice-oriented Masters programme options. Doctoral study is provided though the PhD and DBA (Business Economics) routes. Across all programmes teaching emphasises transformational learning placing the Department at the frontier of educational development, engaging students in a diverse range of practice that support and enable transitions to and within professional life. Contributions from External Programme Advisors, business practitioners and professionals, contribute to developing students with skills and knowledge of relevance for current organisational needs.
