An MBA is a Master’s in Business Administration. It is an internationally recognised strategic management qualification. It serves both to enhance the skills and competencies of experienced managers and also provides a progression route for graduates into management positions. The programme is delivered over two semesters, with 12 teaching weeks in each semester. Students then take a subsequent final term to complete the dissertation.
Hold a minimum of a 2.2 honours degree (level 8), or an appropriate equivalent, i.e, a professional qualification from a recognised education institution in Ireland, or abroad.
An IELTS score of 6.0 in the IELTS Academic version, with at least a 5.5 in all components, or equivalent, is required for non-native English speakers. The GENERAL TRAINING version is not designed to test the full range of language skills required for academic purposes and as such cannot be used.
