The Department of Anthropology together with the School of Business were delighted to launch the new BBS in Business & Global Cultures degree (MH404) on 27th September 2022.
This is a unique degree in Ireland enabling students to combine three business subjects with insights into the diverse cultures and ways of living around the world in this collaboration between Ireland’s youngest and most dynamic School of Business and the only Anthropology department in the Republic of Ireland.
