Future Prospects

A large proportion of students from this course use it as a progression route to NCI, each year.  The National College of Ireland (a state funded College)  is in the IFSC,  Dublin 1.  Marino College of Further Education has a direct link with NCI which offers guaranteed entry for our students who achieve the required grades.

Also, graduates from this course will have skills necessary for employment in business administration in finance, banking, insurance, public service and many other businesses including those in the nearby IFSC.

The Business Administration  course is also used as a stepping stone for progression to our level 6 Project Management or Supervisory Management Courses in Marino College of Further Education.  Graduates may use this course as a progression route to third level Universities and Institutes of Technology. Marino College has a direct progression link for access to all degrees programmes in the National College of Ireland. Past students have said "progression to NCI, DIT, DCU was much smoother than expected as many of the modules are tailored to help students to adapt to Higher Education.  Progression to DIT to study their range of business degrees is also a popular choice.  The range of modules and skills undertaken also means that progression into the workplace is a very popular choice.


I gained so much confidence during my year at Marino now feel ready to go to College.
