CHANGING TO A new industry, moving to a senior level in your company, hitting a salary bracket you never could have reached otherwise, or becoming your own boss…

An MBA, or Masters of Business Administration, can unlock all of these doors and more, while also helping you gain a new perspective and build valuable connections with business-minded people from all walks of life.

The results are impressive: according to a survey from the Graduate Management Admissions Council, 91% of corporate recruiters planned to hire MBA talent in 2021, and 90% of MBA graduates felt that the knowledge they gained on the programme helped to advance their career.

For the second year running, The Journal has partnered with Ireland’s leading business school, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, to offer a life-changing opportunity to one ambitious reader: a full MBA scholarship covering 100% of tuition fees.

All details on how to apply will be shared in the Morning Memo, The Journal’s daily business newsletter. Sign up at the end of this article to be one of the first to find out more.

Valued at up to €35,000, the scholarship covers your choice of either the full-time MBA, the part-time Executive MBA or the part-time Modular Executive MBA, commencing in August 2022.

You can easily compare all three programmes to find the one that’s right for your needs here. To gain more insights and have your questions answered by staff and alumni, register here to join the school’s virtual MBA Experience Day on November 20 from 9.30am – 12pm.

As a member of UCD Smurfit School’s MBA class, you’ll be joining a globally ranked programme at a business school that holds the ‘triple crown’ of accreditation from three centres of business and academic excellence – EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA.

Plus, you’ll be unlocking huge potential for your career: UCD Smurfit’s full-time MBA class of 2020 achieved an average of 77% growth in earnings within three months of graduation, and 92% were employed within five months of graduation.

“We are delighted to once again partner with The Journal to offer a 100% scholarship to an individual looking to enhance and refine their business learning in order to thrive in an ever-changing, challenging business environment,” says Edel O’Leary, Senior Manager of the UCD Smurfit School MBA Programmes.
