Leaving Cert students learn how to #MakeITWork with BIS at UCC


On Friday, May 12th, Leaving Cert students from a number of schools around Cork attended a #MakeITWork event in UCC. The event for prospective Business Information Systems (BIS) students gave them the opportunity to experience university life and get a taste of what the BIS degree programme entails.

The event, which was hosted by Cork University Business School (CUBS), included an overview of the BIS programme, and information about work placement and career opportunities; while BIS graduate, Niamh McCarthy, IS Business Analyst, Stryker, spoke to students and shared her personal experience of the programme. Students also participated in a series of practical workshops where they were exposed to a variety of experiences in terms of coding, problem solving and team building exercises.

Speaking about the #MakeITWork event, Professor Joe Feller, Head of Business Information Systems said “Choosing what to study in university can be very daunting for Leaving Cert students. We want to equip students with the information to make an informed decision, and give them a practical overview of what they can expect if they choose to study BIS at UCC.”
