The UCC Executive MBA


Welcome to University College Cork’s Executive MBA programme.

We hope that the information in this website will give you a better understanding of the opportunities offered by our programme.

Our MBA programme is designed to help our students simultaneously contribute more effectively to their organisations and enhance their career prospects. The programme offers a broad understanding of all the important functions of an organisation: accounting, finance, strategy, human resources, IT, marketing and operations.

The programme is more than just a collection of functional disciplines, however. General managers need to integrate different organisation functions. This requires an integrative approach to leadership, innovation, the ability to reflect on and implement strategy, and the ability to work with people of different temperaments and different professional and personal backgrounds.

Our unique difference is that the UCC Executive MBA programme is explicitly focused on the integration of personal, professional and organisational development – a theme that runs right through our approach to programme design and delivery.

The programme is demanding and requires an intensive commitment of time and effort over both years. You will learn to think and act about management and leadership in new and valuable ways, in an enjoyable, supportive and stimulating learning environment.

Take a look through our website. We believe we have a lot to offer you!
