The Food Business with Chinese Studies (Hons) programme at the University College Dublin reflects the changing market landscape, and aims to develop graduates with the skills and talent urgently requiredby the Irish food industry.


With Brexit and the uncertainty involving the UK market, export expansion to the emerging markets has critical strategic importance to the Irish food industry and the overall economy.The changing market landscape requires improved foreign language capability of Irish companies to facilitate access to new markets, and to help sustain and strengthen the modern agri-food and agribusiness companies.

The Food Business with Chinese Studies (Hons) programme is offered at the University College Dublin.

  • As the agri-food sector becomes more knowledge intensive, education and skills development are even more critical for career success.
