This Business Management programme at Maynooth University provides key business insights and career management skills to both non-Business graduates and experienced professionals who do not have an undergraduate degree. 

About

Through its course content and programme delivery, students access leading business ideas and skills and work alongside managers in the workplace to apply management theory, research, and design business solutions.

This Business Management programme at Maynooth University introduces students to a range of business management topics, including organisational behaviour, IT and operations, finance, strategy, marketing, international business, project management, career management, and business research. We start at a foundational level and rapidly escalate to develop student knowledge to the level of postgraduate expertise. A variety of teaching approaches are applied across the programme with the aim of helping participants to develop a clear career strategy that will increase their employability in the short-term, and sustainable success in the long-term.

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.
