Why choose the College of Commerce?

GREAT progression links to Higher Education – don’t forget there’s more than one way to get into an IT or a university and our students have great success in gaining entry. CAO and other Statistics tell us that over 350 of our students gained a place in a Higher Education Institution after completion of one of our courses. This does not include the numbers that went from our Adult leaving Cert course or our Repeat Leaving Cert course. The links with Institutes of Higher Education are growing and strengthening every year and the a year or two in the College of Commerce is a really good start to commencing life in a university or an IT. Many of our students tell us that they would not have survived if they had gone straight to university and that the year building skills and knowledge with us was invaluable.

GREAT courses to gain employment – Our courses are tailored to meet the skill shortages identified by National Agencies and our Industry Liaison Officer keeps our relationship with industry very active.
