    COLLEGE LIFE EXPLAINED

    DCU is a very good business school and allowed me to complete 2 years in Boston as part of my course at Northeastern University. I also had the opportunity to do an internship in both colleges, which was very beneficial.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think it?s very well thought out. It's quite general so you get a very good grounding in several aspects of business, as well as a good foundation of European and transatlantic studies. I also had the opportunity to study a language which I liked.
