I have always valued upskilling and lifelong learning.

Sirisha Rao |   MSc Business & Hospitality India

Originally from India, I've constantly been on the move since my childhood. This has afforded me the opportunity to experience education in diverse environments, including two different cities and even a forest area, which has greatly enriched my perspective on the world. I have an immense passion for food and thoroughly enjoy experimenting with different culinary creations. In selecting Shannon College for my second master's degree, I found the MSc. Hospitality program to be an ideal fit for me. It focuses on the financial and asset aspects, encompassing both the physical and human elements, of the hospitality industry. I eagerly anticipate becoming a part of the Shannon family, where I will have the pleasure of meeting the remarkable faculty and fellow students who undoubtedly have captivating stories to share.

Gary Brody |   Front Desk Manager, The Lenox, Boston

""If opportunity does not knock, build a door". It as a phrase that still encourages me to keep pushing, to keep finding adventures, and to keep optimistic in a forever uncertain world. Furthering my education through undertaking a masters here in Shannon just one year after I graduated from the BBS Undergraduate degree has taught me to never underestimate your education and power to make a difference. If you are reading this, never forget to remind yourself that you can do it, even though sometimes it feels like you have no clue. (Trust me, you do). Often we feel we should be further than where we are, so take my advice and take your time, watch your own path, and trust the process!"

Bhaanvi Sharma |   Roomd Division Manager Intercontinental Houston

I moved from India to Ireland in 2018 to pursue a Bachelor of business studies and International hotel management from Shannon College, affiliated with the National University of Ireland, Galway and graduated in March 2023. It was a great experience filled with lots of learning and opportunities for my career. As part of the curriculum, I got the opportunity to do my final year placement with IHG, USA and the program was designed and executed to enhance the potential of the hospitality industry students in senior management roles. All this was possible with the help of our college. Being an international student, getting a multi-cultural global experience in the industry, has expanded my career options. After a year of training as a Rooms Division Manager, I will be returning to the same property of InterContinental Hotel in Houston, Texas, as a Rooms Division manager. The college has a very strong alumni network across the globe and lives by its ethos of keeping the contact. And I’m very happy and proud to be a part of our Shannon Family.
