Academics

Students take the Ireland’s International Business Environment core class, one elective, and an internship (6 U. S. semester credit hours total).

Available electives include:

  • Responsible Management, Sustainability and Society
  • Global Sustainable Finance

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

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 six weeks out of the eight-week program.

TRANSCRIPT

Upon completion of your program, IFSA will send an official Butler University transcript to your home university with your coursework converted to the U.S. semester credit hour system. You will also have access to an unofficial transcript in your IFSA Student Portal. The transcript reflects courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost. See our Transcripts page for more information.

Excursions

Program Activities:

Activities and excursions are an important piece of your IFSA experience, designed to pull you into the fabric of the communities you visit and encourage cultural connections of every kind. That said, at times, circumstances beyond our control — including local government regulations and health protocols — could impact our ability to hold these events as planned.

Know that we’ll make every effort to run the activities, trips, and excursions slated for your program. You’ll see detailed examples of previous outings offered during this program below. Keep in mind that the options could look different for your program, and that we cannot guarantee these activities, trips, and excursions.
