Why the UCC Executive MBA?

From Manager, to Innovator, to Leader.

From Manager, to Innovator, to Leader.

The UCC Executive MBA is designed to prepare its participants to become organisational managers, innovators and leaders.

It provides a strong understanding of the core organisational functions and disciplines, but moves beyond that to provide an integrative, critical understanding of the foundations and practice of management and leadership.

Programme participants develop an understanding of the core disciplines by exploring:

  • Organisational decision making and strategy
  • Operations management
  • Human resource management 
  • Financial analysis and performance
  • Business innovation and transformation
  • Sustainability and governance
  • Leadership development

Participants develop an appreciation of how all aspects of a complex organisation interconnect, and an appreciation of the role each function must play in delivering on organisational goals.

For most participants this requires an understanding of functions and disciplines outside of their existing professional competence.

Central to the development of this understanding of the complexity of organisations is our careful approach to class composition, intended to ensure that class participants are exposed to a variety of professional expertise and career backgrounds.

Considerable emphasis is placed on creating an environment conducive to the peer-to-peer learning that we believe is vital to the UCC Executive MBA experience.
