About Us

The UCC Commerce Society is Cork’s largest and most active business orientated university Societies. This year we are celebrating our 85th year as a society, and we continue grow year upon year. The Society endeavors to cater for the needs of students of the Business & Law Faculty and all other students in every way possible.

The UCC Commerce Society has evolved from having a single focus on certain business elements to becoming UCC’s most prestigious society that hosts some of the most highly anticipated events on the UCC Calendar, most notably the Commerce conference which brings together some of Ireland’s top business representatives.

The Society heavily embraces the academic side of college and provides support and training to ensure you get the grades you aspire to achieve. We are committed to creating a strong communication link between Faculties/Departments, Class Representatives and the student body to ensure that the Society is at the core of all matters pertaining to our members.
