This course is designed for students to understand the impact that international trade agreements, off shore financial structures (including tax havens), infrastructural development and entrepreneurship have coalesced in Ireland to make that country, in spite of its small size, a dynamic player in both the European Union and the global economy. It will be advantageous for American economic and financial interests to understand what happens in Ireland and how one benefits from this knowledge. Students enrolled in this program will have a greater awareness about not only Ireland and the Irish culture and people, but also have a “hands-on” set of skills and contacts that could benefit their careers.
