Your chance to meet new people and experience new cultures.  Study in two countries of your choice and learn the skills to be a successful global leader in the digital age with the Global Management (Digital Disruption) programme of the Dublin City University.



In Industry 4.0, technology is disrupting, advancing and challenging business.  Management practices are operating in an era when business is borderless.  The next generation of aspiring leaders must understand the global and technological forces shaping the future of business.

While the Global Management (Digital Disruption) programme of the Dublin City University is rooted in core management disciplines, global strategy and technological considerations underpin the programme, enabling graduates to excel in a business world where disruption, change and innovation are the only constants.

This programme is set apart by the ability to study at a partner Business School in North America or Europe.  This is facilitated through DCU Business School’s membership of the International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS), an international alliance of top business schools.  This unique opportunity immerses students in other cultures, enhancing intercultural competency and ensuring that programme graduates will excel in global business.

The programme is offered through three pathways, including an option to graduate with a double degree award.


Graduates will acquire advanced business knowledge and the prerequisite skills to prepare them to adopt leading roles in international management.  They will learn during the programme how to use modern business solutions and acquire the data-driven digital competencies to deal with organisational and technological challenges which face corporations with international operations.

The programme promotes initiative-taking and creativity to identify and advance solutions for management problems.  Through project and case study work, graduates will be adept at teamwork and interdisciplinary thinking.  Graduates will be versed in and comfortable with data, analytics and statistics and will possess a strong understanding of innovation processes.
