International Study Experience
Combining tuition and experiential learning in a global context the International Study Experience is an intensive tailored programme currently delivered in collaboration with our academic partner Fordham University, NY.

Business Negotiations
Negotiation is a dialogue to discover common ground among parties with differing aims, needs and perspectives in order to achieve a solution. Drawing on Harvard University’s Program on Negotiation, this module employs an experiential approach to advance candidates’ negotiation proficiency.. Negotiation is a valuable leadership and management skill, which is employed in a wide range of business contexts.

Company-based Consultancy
The Inter-Disciplinary Consultancy Project (IDCP) is the capstone of the Executive MBA Programme. The primary course objectives are: to integrate the discipline-based, largely functional, skills already acquired in the EMBA programme; to provide students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge, expertise and experience in the context of a real business situation and to develop the interpersonal skills needed for effective cross-functional teamwork.

The Hospitality Stream aims to expand students’ ability to maximize the potential of their business within the hospitality section (and the tourism industry at large), by using performance indicators and reviewing up-to-date practical management tools.


“I chose the NUI Galway Executive MBA because I wanted to broaden my experience so that I could contribute strategically at a company-wide level. The NUI Galway programme also provided a strong international context and has given me a much deeper perspective on management strategy and leadership challenges. The class interaction and peer-to-peer learning was invaluable due to the diverse backgrounds and experience of the group”
