Available electives include:
  • Responsible Management and Society
  • Global Finance
  • Digital Marketing Communications
Experiential Learning
Internships
Students work for 32 hours per week (Monday-Thursday during business hours) at their internship and are supervised by faculty from UCD. Internships are available in the following areas:
  • Finance and Accountancy
  • Data Analysis, Information & Communications Technology
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Communications and Public Relations
  • Human Resource Management
  • Business Development and International Business
Students must indicate their area of interest as part of the application process, but placements are subject to an interview upon arrival in Dublin. Each student will be interviewed during the month of April to review their education, experience and skill set, and will meet with their employer during week one of the program. The internship is for 6 weeks out of the 8 week program.
Transcripts
After you return to the U.S., IFSA will send a Butler University transcript to your home university and to your permanent address. The transcript reflects the courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost
