Business & Society

Aims & Objectives

This module is intended to provide learners with an insight into the relationship between business and contemporary Irish society, and the role that business plays in Irish society.

The module will explore key elements of this relationship, such as governance structures, regulations, and societal interests and concerns that are common in Ireland. Although the focus will largely be on the Irish context, it will also engage in some comparative exploration of these key issues in other countries.
