Students on the Executive MBA programmes at NUI Galway and at the University of Limerick benefit from the recently announced strategic alliance between the two universities. MBA students will have the option of choosing summer electives in Year One of the programme either at NUI Galway or at the University of Limerick. This alliance provides students with greater choice in their elective subjects and more flexibility to tailor the programme to their particular needs. The alliance also allows for expanded networking opportunities with other MBA students. This year, students are taking two electives from the following list of those on offer in UL and at NUI Galway: Business Negotiations, International Management, Technology Management and Strategic Sales Management.

“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”
