BA (Hons) in Business (Information Systems)
CAO Code: DB524
DBS is delighted to announce that it will be offering free tuition fees on four of its programmes through CAO as part of additional places under the Government Human Capital Initiative (HCI). This means there are no tuition fees for this programme, and students will only have to pay a €1,500 registration fee if they are successfully offered a place through CAO in August 2020. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Information Systems (IS) pathway of the BA (Hons) Business is designed to be specifically relevant to the modern business environment in which the role of information systems has become increasingly important. Business professionals are now expected to be proficient in relevant technological concepts and applications, skills that had been viewed as being outside of the domain of the traditional business degree. Information systems must be designed, implemented and maintained using an array of methodologies, tools and technologies. This IS pathway aims to provide students with the skills, knowledge and competences in the use of systems and related-technologies to control and manage organisational data and information.
Important update for mature applicants
DBS is delighted to announce its new partnership with Uversity, an education charity awarding higher education scholarships to adult learners.
This scholarship is available for mature applicants only, and applications must be made through CAO. Eligible programmes include:
BSc (Hons) Computing (CAO Code: DB500)
BSc (Hons) Computing (Data Analytics and Big Data) (CAO Code: DB502)
BA (Hons) Business (Information Systems) (CAO Code: DB524)
BA (Hons) Business (Cloud Computing) (CAO Code: DB526)
The above degree programmes at DBS are currently funded by the Government’s Human Capital Initiative programme. These courses are linked with specific skills shortages identified by the Government and as such; the employment prospects for graduates are very promising.
Tuition fees will be covered by the HCI scheme. Any further incurring expenses, e.g. administration and registration fees; will be covered by the Uversity Scholarship for successful recipients.
Interested applicants should review the eligibility criteria and application process details here, and submit their applications to Uversity by the 23:59 pm, 20th April 2020 deadline.
