This broadly based honours business degree has a strong focus on the retail and service sectors of the economy. The services sector is one of the most complex and dynamic sectors of our economy, driven by globalisation, information and telecommunications technology, and increasingly diverse and sophisticated consumers.

The retail sector, in particular, is a fast-moving and rapidly expanding area of opportunity for business graduates. High performers achieve rapid advancement and excellent rewards.

You’ll acquire a comprehensive understanding of the principal operational and strategic issues involved in the management of retail & services-based enterprises in the context of both national and international business. You’ll become familiar with the business specialties and disciplines affecting both operational and strategic management decisions in such enterprises.

The general modules include finance, information technology, management, marketing & market research, law, economics, human resource management, and entrepreneurial studies. The specialist modules include retail management, retail analytics, retail marketing, international retailing, retail consumption, store atmospherics, shopping centre management, retail buying & negotiating, financial services and services management strategy.

In Year 3, Semester 2, you can study abroad at a European or North American university, where modules are delivered in English. You take suitable modules from the courses on offer in the partner institution and sit examinations and other assessments there.

*Scholarships: First-year students enrolling on this programme who have obtained 500 points or more in their Leaving Certificate will be awarded a first-year entrance scholarship of €1,000 in recognition of their outstanding performance.

On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.

There are attractive career opportunities in management, marketing & IT in retail or service-based organisations, or in organisations supplying these sectors. Graduates have been in demand from national and international retailers, financial services organisations such as banks and insurance companies, as well as by supplier organisations in the retail supply chain.

Students will take both general business modules and specialist retail & service specific modules.

I chose the BSc in Retail and Services Management as my degree because it is a broad-based honours degree which touches on every aspect of business. This appealed to me as I was unsure of the specific area of business I wanted to study, when filling out my CAO. My success in work placement has by default resulted in a secured job in Lidl GmbH Ireland as a Sales Operations Manager (also known as an Area Manager) once I finish my studies in June 2012.
This programme gives you all the tools and knowledge you need for a career in either the Retail or Services industries. Working in teams from different backgrounds, it really made the four years fly by. The course is really interesting with a good mix of assignments and exams. I would strongly recommend this programme to prospective students. Overall a great learning experience which benefited me both professionally and personally.
