Dr Alma McCarthy, Programme Director of the MBA at NUI Galway, said: “Our Executive MBA has a very strong focus on career and professional development and we have an excellent bespoke mentoring programme for MBA students with key business leaders from the locality.”

Current NUI Galway MBA student and Sales Manager with Dycon, an Irish manufacturing and distribution of construction and DIY products company, Brendan Galvin, said: “The MBA programme at NUI Galway has amassed immense benefits for me personally and professionally from day one. The lecturers are extremely approachable and the camaraderie experienced through fellow classmates has given me deep-rooted networks which I suspect will last throughout my career.”
