NUI Galway’s AMBA and AACSB accredited MBA programme, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year, will host a virtual MBA open evening on April 21 at 6pm. The open evening is a great opportunity to learn about the programme and to meet MBA faculty, students, and graduates.
Recent graduate John O’Shea, MBA, director of operations at Meissner Filtration Products, said: “I considered a number of MBA offerings in Ireland and the UK before choosing NUI Galway. Firstly, it offered me networking possibilities nationally and specifically in the west of Ireland, and secondly for the block release and blended learning approach which enabled me to step out of my day job for a short period each month, and focus on the learnings for those days I had dedicated to the MBA.
"Personally, the investment in the MBA paid off immediately. In the middle of the MBA programme, I was successful in becoming director of operations for the Californian based pharmaceutical filtration company Meissner, which was setting up its first European manufacturing facility in Castlebar, Co Mayo. I can 100 per cent say this opportunity would not have materialised without the recognition of the value of an MBA, and most importantly the learnings and friendships gained from my classmates during the MBA programme."
An MBA is the one of the most prestigious business degrees globally, and the AMBA (Association of MBAs ) accredited NUI Galway MBA, is one of the leading programmes in the country. For further information visit www.nuigalway.ie/mba
