The benefits of business
Acquire the necessary skills to play a key management role in the future. Students will gain an appreciation and understanding of the ever-changing environment in which a business operates and the problems that a manager might face. You’ll study a unique syllabus reflecting the multiple requirements of the modern business world.
Specialist subjects in our business courses give your degree an edge and give you the opportunity to develop your entrepreneurial skills. Specialise in fields including Marketing and Human Resource Management, and make yourself the perfect fit for that dream job.
If you wish to continue your studies, you can progress into various MA and MSc programmes within Griffith College including finance, tourism, brand management and international media management and also into ACCA professional papers. Some of our courses are even recognised by the Teaching Council of Ireland, so you can go on to instruct new generations of students.
Flexible study modes
Working full time? Live too far from campus? Or maybe you have all the time in the world to commit to your course! With full-time, part-time and blended options, you can study in the way that suits you and your schedule. We also offer an access programme, if you cannot commit to the required time per week. The programme allows you to take as few modules as you need to fit your schedule and achieve your degree over a flexible duration.
Prepare for the world of work
The BA (Hons) in Business Studies is recognised by the Teaching Council of Ireland, so graduates are eligible to pursue secondary teaching careers. Several courses allow students to qualify for exam exemptions from the ACCA, ACA and CPA. Work placement is an integral part of multiple programmes. All this means that students enter the workforce fully prepared for its demands.

The Annual Business Enterprise Competition
Our faculty holds an annual competition to challenge and reward creative, enterprising secondary school students from transition year, 5th year and 6th year across the country. Participating students develop a real product, use their social media marketing skills to promote their idea, and then present to a panel of judges at Griffith College's main Dublin campus.
What Our Students & Alumni Say
We followed up with some past & current students to see what a difference their Business course at Griffith College has made to them.
Studying at Griffith College added so much value to my personal and professional development. Griffith is a fairly small college with small classes and a nice little campus. I prefer to study in an environment where the lecturer knows you by your forename, as well as your strengths and weaknesses and can help you properly if you are struggling.
Realistically, I would have been able to go back to college if it wasn’t for blended learning. It’s the only way I could have earned a degree while still progressing in my career. By the time I finish, I’ll have a level 8 Bachelors in Business and years of experience in a global marketing company. It would have taken me seven years to achieve what I’ve gotten in four.
Studying and writing complement each other. Whereas college is determined by module material – understanding, learning and retaining information, writing is entirely self-directed and allows complete creative freedom. The business knowledge I've learned through the course has helped me immensely, as publishing a book is a mini business venture. Accounting modules helped with keeping on top of costs, while other areas gave me an insight into the operational side of the shops I am selling through.
