About the Program

The Business Consulting Course with associated experiential learning equips you to work as a practitioner in a real-world enterprise.

Digital technologies and developments are continuing to influence transformation in business and operational models.

The CEA CAPA Dublin Center has a focus on active learning that takes you out of the classroom and into the city, where you’ll enjoy first-hand encounters with local culture. This compelling, interactive learning environment offers courses in Liberal Arts and Business characterized by global perspective, small class sizes, and experienced faculty. 

When you study abroad in Dublin, you can choose standard CEA CAPA housing—in a student residence apartment or homestay—or arrange your own independent housing. Assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Program Structure

The required Business Consulting course is comprised of both a flipped classroom-style online academic course and a locally based business consulting project that will require you to meet regularly with clients and conduct group work outside of class. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about your assigned company through in-person or virtual meetings and by visiting their facilities/operations, conducting market research, creating relationships, ideating proposals and solutions, all of which will culminate in a consulting proposal.

In addition to your 3-credit business consulting course and project, you will choose 3-4 additional CEA CAPA course to take from the catalog of course options available to you. This provides you with the opportunity to gain professional experience while also making progress toward your degree requirements and engaging in classes that afford a richer cultural experience.  

Courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. Overall, students may earn 12-15 credits. Elective courses generally meet 2 times per week, Monday-Thursday.  Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. 

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Galway, Connemara, and the Aran Islands

Galway, Connemara, and the Aran Islands

Relax as a private bus takes you and your fellow students across Ireland, from east to west, to the Cliffs of Moher, a spectacular vista of coastline and dramatic rock face. You’ll continue to Galway, the country’s fourth largest city and considered by many to be the cultural capital of Ireland. Enjoy the spectacular sunset over Galway Bay as you discover Galway’s charmingly narrow pedestrian streets. The next day, you’ll depart for Connemara, home to beautiful and rugged landscapes where the Gaelic language is still spoken. We’ll take a ferry to the Aran Islands, where you’ll experience a link with a time long passed. Explore Dun Aengus, a fort that dates back to the Iron Age, before returning to Galway to experience live traditional music in local pubs.

Kerry

Kerry

Kerry is known as “The Kingdom” for good reason. Home to some of the most magnificent scenery in Ireland, from the gorgeous Killarney National Park to the jaw-dropping beauty of the Dingle Peninsula, we’ll venture off the typical bus tour routes so you can experience these places in a unique fashion, such as an early morning horse ride through the park and a (gentle) bike ride to Muckross House and Abbey. You’ll learn about the park’s flora and fauna, as well as the lives of the Kerry Chieftains that once resided there. No introduction to Kerry would be complete without a visit to Fungi the Dolphin; local fishermen will take you out to sea to meet Dingle’s biggest celebrity and learn about his Atlantic home. Enjoy a tasty lunch under the canopy of trees at Torc Waterfall and mingle with locals while experiencing the nightlife of Killarney town. The trip to Kerry offers a delicious combination of action, history and nature that is sure to leave you spellbound.

Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens

Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens

During this day trip, a private bus takes you to County Wicklow and Glendalough, the site of an old Irish monastery founded by St Kevin. Explore this scenic setting in the Wicklow Mountains in a valley between two lakes (“Gleann da loch”) and take a tour of the site. This classic example of an Irish monastery dates back to a golden era when Ireland was referred to as the “island of saints and scholars.” On the way back to Dublin via the coast road, we’ll stop at Bray, one of Ireland’s favorite seaside resorts.

Belfast

Belfast

Travel north by private coach to Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. Once battered by the “Troubles” between Catholics and Protestants, since 1998’s Good Friday Agreement, Belfast enjoys the hustle and bustle of any major city with its shops, bars, and restaurants full of life and activity. As a reminder of the past, we’ll visit “Loyalist” and “Republican” quarters of the city to view colorful murals that depict the bitterness of a divided community.
