MSc (International Management)
“Choosing this course was a no-brainer, as the MSc in International Management was voted best business postgraduate course in Ireland in 2013. I would definitely recommend this Conversion Course. Coming from a Science background I was worried about being out of my depth, however I found the material really easy to understand (if you put your mind to it!). The lecturers are very approachable and I really felt like I got a good grasp on the material. Our international trip was another enticing factor, however even without this element I would still highly recommend this course to anyone considering furthering their business studies, or who wants to jump into the deep end and immerse themselves in international management.”

"The MSc in International Management programme was an ideal choice for me in pursuing a global career. The practical elements of the course gave me genuine exposure to the international business environment, and proved fundamental in securing employment with a US technology company in the early phases of its international expansion. The guidance provided by the faculty is superb and the small class sizes facilitate interaction and a great class dynamic."
