01 About the course
TDuring the course of the degree programme, students will be provided with instruction in a wide range of business subject areas. Each of these subjects, or modules, has its own specific aims and objectives. These relate to the overall aims and objectives of the degree, by recognising the component themes on which the degree is based, and the different development stages through which the students will develop. The Chinese modules have been developed to give the students a grounding in Mandarin and Chinese culture in the first two years of the programme before they advance onto the third year of the programme in Hubei University. Upon completion of the year in Hubei University students return to ICD Dublin for completion of their final year of the degree, at this point it would be expected that the student would be at the intermediate stage in relation to Chinese language.
