The UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business Summer Internship is an eight-week programme combining academic, experiential and cultural elements into a holistic curriculum designed to ensure the student has the most engaged, international experience possible. Two weeks of intensive academic courses book-end a six-week internship placement at a leading Irish or multinational company.


Academics

The UCD Summer Internship Program comprises of two modules and an internship: 
(course syllabi coming soon!)
  • Course 1 - Core Module (5 ECTS / 3 US credits)
Ireland's International Business Environment
  • Course 2 - Elective Module (5 ECTS / 3 US Credits).
Choose one of the three course options below:

Business and Global Development 
Business Analytics Finance Project
Marketing

Students will be required to prepare in advance for the academic component and readings and syllabi will be shared with the students three weeks prior to arrival.
 

Internship Component:

The internship will be for six weeks, Monday to Thursday between Monday June 18 - Thursday July 26 (2018). The internship is unpaid. Each student will be interviewed during the month of April to review their education, experience and skill set. Based on this information, each student will be placed into a suitable role by the UCD internship team.

Students will receive notification of their placement at the end of May and will meet with their employer during week one of the program.  

Your internship will be based in the Dublin region. Most students will be required to commute to their workplace using public transport.  The majority of the internship placements are in the city center which would involve at least a 30-40 minute commute in rush hour traffic. Students will be provided with a map and details of how to get to their placement from UCD.
