Through the Business Management programme at Maynooth University content and  learning activities, students access leading business ideas and skills and work alongside managers in the workplace to apply management theory, research, and design business solutions.

We provide block teaching of modules on career planning and development, organisational behaviour, strategy, marketing, international business, finance, supply chain and operations, project management and research.   We rapidly develop students to apply knowledge at the level of postgraduate expertise and we continuously emphasise the importance of self-motivation and career management as both are essential to carving out a successful sustainable career in the longer term.  The course prepares graduates for a wide range of roles and organisations and students are supported to optimise either their first step into the professional labour market or build on their professional experience and consider future goals.

Conversion programmes are a popular method for non-Business graduates to bring their unique skills and experiences to the business world. We have graduates from Computer Science, Music to Humanities who bring their different perspectives to bear on the real-life problems posed to them from the world of business.


Combined with your existing proficiency from your bachelor’s degree and/or professional work experience, completing this master’s signals your ambition, work ethic, and expertise to prospective employers and positions graduates to undertake a range of business management roles.

The course develops future executives in organisations for all sectors. The course material takes a broad, cross-sectoral, and international approach. Accordingly, the course prepares graduates for a wide range of roles and organisations. Students also take a career management module designed to enhance employability at the outset and throughout their career. The module guides students to optimise their first step into the professional labour market or build on their professional experience and consider future goals. 

Students will identify their personal career priorities and apply career planning and development tools that can be enacted throughout their working life. Students are empowered to undertake a range of learning activities that target their personal CPD priorities. In doing so, students will enhance their employability through analysing, developing, and articulating how they can best contribute to an organisation.
