The keys to success
Want to give your career a major kickstart? The Smurfit MBA may just be the ticket. Read on to find out how you can win a scholarship for an MBA at UCD Smurfit School.


?Orla Nugent, MBA programme director, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School
As one of the first business schools in Europe to offer an MBA, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School has over 50 years? experience in delivering an international MBA programme and is uniquely positioned within the top 1% of business schools worldwide to hold triple accreditation from AACSB (US), EQUIS (Europe) and AMBA (UK). Today, the Smurfit MBA is the only one in Ireland to be consistently ranked amongst the global top 100 by the Financial Times and The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Encouraging female participation on the Smurfit MBA is very important. Our intention is to develop potential and ensure that organisations have a gender balanced talent pipeline at all levels. In this regard, both the School and the MBA programme support a variety of initiatives focused on developing female talent in business. Students on the Smurfit MBA secure a solid grounding in business across all sectors, and gain a rounded set of competencies, which enables them to be more effective leaders; this consequently allows them to have a much greater impact and influence on people outside of their zone of expertise.


According to a recent report by the Fort? Foundation, earning an MBA can dramatically impact women’s pay and position within their industry and organisation. In fact, graduates of the Smurfit MBA see pay gains on average of +73%* of their pre-MBA salary within three years of graduation. If you are seeking a challenge, a change, or an injection of pace in your career, it’s time to start your MBA journey with UCD Smurfit School.

Our hope is that more and more women will recognise what an MBA can do for them, and we are delighted to work with IMAGE Magazine for the tenth year to promote the IMAGE MBA scholarship, which offers one cadidate?50% tuition fees** towards the full-time or executive MBA programme.
