(ii) A course is composed of one or more units. Each course will be followed by an examination. (iii) Please note the following definition of terms: Course: A series of lectures, associated course work (if any) and the examinations associated with the course. Course Work: All essays, projects, mid-term examinations etc. that contribute towards the final mark for a course in addition to the final written examination paper. Examination Offering: There are two examinations associated with each course: the first examination, termed the First Offering, held immediately after the course and the second examination, termed the Second Offering, held at a later date, normally at the end of the subsequent semester for semesterised courses and in Autumn for non-semesterised courses. Deferral of Examination: Where the first examination offering associated with a course is not taken for whatever reason. (iv) Students who do not obtain the credits associated with a course by the second examination offering may be required to re-register for that course, re-attend, complete any assigned course work, pass the course examination and pay the associated fee. (v) Credits will be given for each set of course units passed. Each level of the degree programme contains 60 credits (in accordance with European Union standards, namely the European Credit Transfer System: ECTS), which are assigned as follows: 6 Commerce (Undergraduate Programmes) Credits Level 1: ACC 1008 (2 units) 6.6 BMGT 1001 (2 units) 6.6 BMGT 1003 (2 units) 6.6 ACC 1004 (2 units) 6.6 ECON 1109 (1 unit) 2.4 ECON 1104 (2 units) 6.6 ECON 1108 (2 units) 6.6 MATH 1703 (2 units) 6.6 MIS 1001 (2 units) 6.6 MIS 1008 (1 unit) 2.4 BMGT 1006 (1 unit) 2.4 Total 60.0 Level 2: ACC 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 ACC 2004 (1 unit) 7.5 BMGT 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 ECON 2281 (1 unit) 7.5 FIN 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 HRM 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 MIS 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 MKT 2001 (1 unit) 7.5 Total 60.0 Level 3: BMGT 3001 (1 unit) 6.0 BMGT 3004 (1 unit) 6.0 Area of Concentration (8 units) 48.0 (including electives) Total 60.0 Please Note: the above courses are as prescribed for the academic year 2004/2005. Students should note that the courses listed for Levels 1, 2 and 3 for the academic year 2005/2006 and subsequent years may change, may be dropped or may be modified. 4 The degree is composed of a number of courses which are given at three levels. Level 1 courses are offered at the commencement of the degree programme. These are followed by Level 2 courses. Level 3 courses are taken in the final stages of the degree programme. Courses in Level 2 and Level 3 are semesterised and examinations are held at the end of each course. Second offering examinations for first semester courses will be offered at the end of the second semester of the same year. The second offering examinations for the second semester examinations will take place at the end of the first semester of the following year. In the event that a course is changed or modified, then no additional repeat examinations for that course will be offered. A student may not repeat any examination that the student has already passed. A student is deemed to have completed his/her degree requirements as soon as all required courses have been passed. 7 Students should note that it is likely that second offering examinations for second semester courses of the previous academic year will be held in the first week of January and in the first week of the second semester. 5 Progress from Level 1 to Level 2 (i) Students who obtain a total of 60 credits on the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the Level 1 courses are eligible for unrestricted entry into Level 2 courses. (ii) Students who obtain less than 60 credits on the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the Level 1 courses may not progress to Level 2 without the permission of the Faculty of Commerce. (iii) Students who obtain less than 60 Level 1 credits within two years of entering the Bachelor of Commerce programme may not remain in the Faculty of Commerce. (iv) Students who obtain 20 or less credits in the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the first year may not remain in the Faculty of Commerce. 6 Please note: the Bachelor of Commerce programme is currently in the process of review and it is likely that substantial changes will take place in the programme of study in Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 from the academic year 2005/2006 onwards. Students who fail to achieve 60 credits in Level 1 by the second examination offering of the academic year 2004/2005 may not be in a position to take Level 1 examinations based on 2004/2005 courses in subsequent years. The provisions of Rule 13 will then apply. 7 A student cannot be registered for any Level 3 course nor attempt any Level 3 examination while the student has one or more Level 1 examinations outstanding. 8 Honours may be awarded in each course and in the degree as a whole. The honours standard in each course will be in accordance with University regulations. For degree honours classification, a weight of 1/3 will be given to Level 2 examinations, and 2/3 to Level 3 examinations. For a repeated Level 2 course, the mark used for degree honours classification will be the result of the successfully repeated examination. For a repeated Level 3 course, the mark used for degree honours classification will be the result of the successfully repeated examination. 9 A student's application to choose a Level 3 Mode and his/her semester one elective(s) must be made at the end of the Level 2 academic year. The number of student places in courses/offering(s) of courses is determined by the Faculty of Commerce and an application to register for a course/offering does not guarantee entry into that course/offering. The Mode and elective(s) choice is not open to change at any time. Where students have to indicate a list of preferences for courses, students are bound at all times into this list. Permission to be registered for a course and to attempt the examination at the end of any Level 3 course is contingent on the student satisfying the minimum attendance requirement of the course. Formal attendance at a course will be deemed to have commenced when Faculty records show that the student is enrolled for the course. 8 Commerce (Undergraduate Programmes) 10 A Level 3 student must register for the exact number of electives as are prescribed in the Mode details. Only under the circumstances detailed in Rule 11 can a student register for an additional elective. 11 When a student fails to obtain credit for an elective, then the student can opt to either repeat the failed elective or choose another elective. In the event that a student opts to choose another elective, he/she must re-register for that elective, reattend and pay the appropriate fee. 12 Within Level 3, each mode may offer up to one applied course in which a supervised project assignment will form the major component of the course. This project-based course within a mode can only be taken by students registered for that mode. All project-based courses will take place in the second semester. (i) Assessment of a project-based course will be based on submitted project work together with an end of semester written examination. Up to 70% of the available marks may be allocated to the project component of the course. (ii) To pass a project-based course, a student must achieve a minimum mark of 40% for each of the written examination and project components. Where a student achieves a mark of less than 40% in either component, the student must repeat the failed component. For a repeated Level 3 project-based course, the mark used for degree honours classification will be the result of the successfully repeated examination. 13 Students who do not obtain the credits associated with a course by the second examination offering may be required to re-register for that course, re-attend and pay the associated fee. Students should note that courses may change from year to year, may not be offered in certain years, and may be dropped entirely from the programme. This will require the substitution of a course(s) by additional course(s) and will entail re-registration, re-attendance and the payment of appropriate fees. Those students who do not obtain credits associated with a course by the second examination offering in their first cycle of registration for that course, may find that subsequent examination offerings, if any, may not be held at a time which is convenient and they may also find that these subsequent examination offerings may be timetabled at the very same time as other examination offerings which they may still need to take. 14 Course Work (i) Where a mark is given for course work a pass mark will not be awarded for the course unless at least 35% is attained in the written examination in that course. (ii) The course work mark shall only be counted for the first examination offering of any course. The second offering examination mark shall, therefore, be based entirely on the written second offering examination paper. 15 With reference to the degree weighting of 1/3 for Level 2 and 2/3 for Level 3, students who have received exemptions from Level 2 or Level 3 courses will have the quality of their degree determined, on a proportionate basis, by the grades they have received from courses which have been taken at University College 9 Dublin. Thus, grades from courses used for exemption purposes will not contribute to the quality of the degree. 16 To pass Applied Business Competencies (BMGT 1006), a student must achieve a minimum of 40% for each component of the course. Where a student achieves a mark of less than 40% in either component, the student must repeat the failed component. Assessment is based on class attendance, written submissions, oral presentations and practical examinations. 17 Study Abroad (i) At the discretion of the Faculty of Commerce, a limited number of Level 2 students may spend a semester from their Level 2, studying abroad at an approved university or business school. In certain circumstances this may be extended to a maximum of one academic year. These students will take equivalent courses to those in Commerce Level 2. (ii) To progress to an approved university or business school, abroad, students must have achieved 60 credits in Level 1 and 30 credits from semester one of Level 2. (iii) Students must pass their approved course of study at the counterpart university or business school. Where courses at the counterpart university or business school are not passed, students are required to sit and pass the repeat examination at the host institution. The Faculty of Commerce also reserve the right to require students who fail courses abroad, to sit and pass equivalent or nominated courses in UCD after the student has returned to UCD. Quinn School of Business reserve the right to inform parents / guardians or other family members if there are concerns about the safety or well being of students while abroad on approved Quinn School of Business Student Exchanges. In addition, if requested, students must respond to requests to contact their co-ordinator(s) both in UCD and in the host institution. Students must provide a suitable phone number for this purpose and should also monitor their on a regular basis. 18 In addition to the Commerce Undergraduate Programmes Booklet (i.e. this Booklet), students will receive a Quinn School Handbook every academic year. Students are bound by all Rules, Regulations and information contained in the Handbook. 19 Students who defer examinations run the risk of encountering administrative issues such as not being eligible to register to courses at the same time as those students who complete examinations on time, timings of second offering examinations, etc. As a consequence, students are advised not to defer examinations. 20 A student may not repeat any examination that the student has already passed. 21 A maximum of 40% of the total marks available in each course may be allotted to course work. 10 Commerce (Undergraduate Programmes) Syllabus of Courses for the Degree of Bachelor of Commerce First Year (Level 1) The courses of Level 1 are: ACC 1008 Financial Accounting 1 (2 units) BMGT 1001 Management Principles and Business Environment (2 units) BMGT 1003 Organisational Behaviour (2 units) ACC 1004 Business Law (2 units) ECON 1109 Principles of Microeconomics (1 unit) ECON 1104 Principles of Macroeconomics (2 units) ECON 1108 Socio-Economic Institutions and Theory (2 units) MATH 1703 Mathematics (2 units) MIS 1001 Business Statistics (2 units) MIS 1008 Introduction to Computers and Information Systems (1 unit) BMGT 1006 Applied Business Competencies (1 unit) Second Year (Level 2) The courses of Level 2 are: ACC 2001 Management Accounting (1 unit) ACC 2004 Financial Accounting 2 (1 unit) BMGT 2001 Business Logistics and Operations Management (1 unit) ECON 2281 Intermediate Economic Theory (1 unit) FIN 2001 Finance (1 unit) HRM 2001 Managing Employee Relations (1 unit) MKT 2001 Marketing (1 unit) MIS 2001 Database Systems Development & Information Management (1 unit) Third Year (Level 3) The courses of Level 3 are: BMGT 3001 Strategy Formulation and Implementation (1 unit) BMGT 3004 Ireland in Europe (1 unit) In addition to the above courses, each student will select one of the following modes: Accounting Banking and Finance General Management International Business Management Information Systems Marketing Human Resource Management Mode core courses and a list of electives to a total of 8 units will be prescribed.
