Welcome Address from the Head of College of Business and Law : Professor Thia Hennessy


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the College of Business and Law at University College Cork.  The College is made up of departments and schools in the business and law areas, grouped under the Cork University Business School and the School of Law. The College provides a range of exciting programmes which ensure students have strong theoretical knowledge in their chosen fields, combined with a range of transferable skills. We are committed to ensuring that our students have not only a rewarding University education, but leave us skilled and prepared to work in an increasingly challenging legal and business environment. 

Our College welcomes a highly talented and increasingly diverse student body to the study of law and business at UCC.  Whether you come from Cork or from overseas, to pursue part-time or full-time, at undergraduate and postgraduate level we are committed to providing you with a quality education that is research-led and strongly connected to the worlds of theory and practice. Our wide range of options that enable students to study abroad and to undertake work and other placements is testament to this.

The College of Business and Law wants to ensure that students receive every support to enable them to achieve at the highest level throughout their University lives. We want this to be a challenging but a rewarding time that prepares you for life ahead while also providing you with an experience of which we can all be proud.

So, embrace this important opportunity to benefit from the knowledge, commitment and expertise of my colleagues at the College of Business and Law. I wish you every success during your time here and afterwards.
