NUI Galway’s JE Cairnes School of Business and Economics is organising a conference and gala dinner to mark the 40th anniversary of the first intake to its master of business administration (MBA ) programme. The events celebrating this milestone will take place Friday January 25 in Galway and all MBA alumni, as well as past and current teaching faculty, are invited to attend.
Focusing on a number of contemporary business, management, and leadership issues and challenges, the conference, 40 Years A-Growing in Business and Management: Learning from the Past, Leading the Future, will draw together a panel of high-profile contributors from business and academia, many of whom are NUI Galway MBA alumni. These will include Dr Alan Ahearne, economist and lecturer at NUI Galway; Mike Higgins, managing director and head of CIBC World Markets Corporation and chair of NUI Galway’s US Foundation Board; Seamus Kavanagh, vice-president of Hollister in Chicago; Paschal McCarthy, vice-president of GE Healthcare; Professor John McHale, chair of the National Fiscal Council and chair of Economics at NUI Galway; and Helen Ryan, CEO, Creganna Tactx Medical.
“We very much look forward to welcoming back our very successful MBA alumni,” said Dr Alma McCarthy, executive MBA programme director at NUI Galway. “This is a great opportunity for them to return to the university, see the new Cairnes Business School, reconnect with their MBA classmates, and network with other NUI Galway MBA graduates and potential business partners.”
