A group of NUI Galway Executive MBA students took part in a week-long Global Gateway Programme at the world renowned Fordham University in New York City in June 2013.
Students met with experienced academics and attended seminars and lectures from finance, leadership and change to teamwork through Jazz.
One highlight was a Breakfast Panel organised and sponsored by the Galway University Foundation entitled “Reflections on Professional Success”. All of the speakers, many of whom are NUI Galway graduates, have distinguished international careers and shared their experiences in the corporate world together with the challenges encountered in achieving ‘balance’ in their personal and senior executive lives. The Executive MBA students learned the importance of embracing change, on-going learning and development, mentoring and building relationships. The event was hosted at the exclusive New York Athletic Club on Central Park. “The NUI Galway event was extremely beneficial and in a wonderful location which really complemented the programme in Fordham”, said John Evans, Executive MBA 2012-14.

“I started my own physiotherapy business in 2004, and as the business developed I realized I needed to develop skills that were not part of my professional training in particular in the areas of management, marketing and IT. I chose the Executive MBA because it offered the full range of disciplines that I needed. With the knowledge gained I have been able to install a software system which allows us to manage all aspects of our business more effectively and efficiently thus giving us a competitive advantage.
Highlights from the EMBA programme include the International Study Trip to Fordham University, USA as well as participating and completing the Inter Disciplinary Company Project in the second year. Both are very unique experiences that are offered by this EMBA which has allowed for consolidation of knowledge and skills as well as highlighting possible opportunities for the future”.

“I selected the NUIG Executive MBA program because it offered me the opportunity to continue with my career and embark on my MBA education at the same time. This provided me the opportunity to apply the learning in my organization almost simultaneously. The program also offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business leaders both local and international. Overall it has been a very positive experience”
