Our Executive MBA programme is designed to help our students to contribute more effectively to their organisations and at the same time, to enhance their own 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. Leaders and general managers need to integrate different organisation functions.

Central to developing this ability is an appreciation and understanding of functions outside one’s professional area of competence.

Additionally the programme’s careful attention to class composition is intended to enhance participant’s capability to work with people from a variety of 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.

We believe the payoff will be large: you will learn to think and act about management and leadership in new and valuable ways, in an enjoyable, supportive and stimulating learning environment.
