The Centre for Adult Learning & Professional Development at NUI Galway, in collaboration with the 30% Club, has launched the MSc in Technology Management Scholarship. Starting in September 2018, this scheme aims to advance female leadership and executive representation in technology organisations. Presently, the NUIG scholarship is valued at €15,800 and will be awarded on a competitive basis.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 29th July 2018.

Globally, the 30% Club creates partnerships with Universities to fix the under-representation of women at senior levels. Presently, this is unquestionably apparent in the technology sector.

About the MSc in Technology Management

The MSc in Technology Management aims to develop leaders who can leverage technology to drive strategic initiatives and approaches. As a result, this programme focuses on the potential of technology to improve people’s lives by; optimising operations and processes and freeing up people to do what they are best at; enabling new thinking and approaches; developing innovative products, processes and services that improve health, communication, sustainability, learning, research, safety, prosperity and enrich lives.

This part-time MSc takes place over two years through blended learning, online delivery, and workshops one Saturday per month. The workshops, learning activities, and assessments can be based on the learner’s work situation. Furthermore, students can apply the course content directly to their role, use company data, and address scenarios they come across in their professional life.

About the 30% Club Ireland

Launched in January 2015, the 30% Club Ireland aims to achieve gender balance and diversity at all levels in Irish businesses. The 30% Club is a collaborative, business-led effort to make real change. Their goal is 30% female representation in senior management by 2020. The 30% Club believes that gender balance on boards and in executive leadership roles not only encourages better leadership and governance but also contributes to improved company performance and promotes innovation.

Brid Horan, co-founder of the 30% Club Ireland, expressed the organisation’s immense gratitude to NUI Galway for their practical support for gender balance in business. ‘The addition of a second scholarship in 2018 for the MSc in Technology Management to the Exec MBA scholarship offered in 2017 demonstrates commitment and an appreciation of the particular challenge of developing female talent in this sector.’
