DCU is Ireland’s ‘University of Enterprise’ and is consistently recognised in global rankings of young universities. The dynamic and vibrant ethos of these universities of the future specifically influence the design and delivery of the DCU Executive MBA Programme.

The DCU Executive MBA is designed to be professionally and personally transformative, aimed at developing business leaders with ambition, enterprise and leading-edge thinking who can create tangible and sustainable outcomes for their organisations through the application of their learning.

The DCU Executive MBA programme, which is internationally accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), has been graduating MBAs for more than 20 years, developing evidence-based managers, who can identify and analyse the best available data to make better decisions in their organisations. DCU Business School is accredited by AACSB, a standard reached by only 5% of business schools worldwide reflecting its established international reputation for high quality graduates.

We connect theory, scientific research, data and practice through participative teaching approaches, industry speakers, national and international company visits and industry-focused projects.

The DCU Executive MBA is a part-time programme, delivered one day per week (Thursdays 2.00-9.00) over 2 years across 4 semesters.

 

In the first year of the Executive MBA programme, you will develop an understanding of the range of foundation disciplines and their potential contribution to business leadership and organisational effectiveness. The second year of the programme will be characterised by an integrated approach, which focuses more specifically on the key strategic drivers of sustainable growth and operational excellence.

 

The design of the programme is underpinned by 4 key pillars:

  1. Inspiring Future Leaders: Participants will follow a two-year leadership and career development programme. Action-based projects, workshops, team and facilitator feedback, and self-reflection develop self-awareness of own leadership style, deepens emotional intelligence and enhances leader behaviours.
  2. Transforming Organisations: We seek to develop participants capacity for analysis, assessment, judgement and action; skills that participants can exercise throughout their careers.
  3. Engaging the Enterprise: Our programme emphasises applied learning in practice. We take a holistic view of the enterprise; integrating across business functions, with industry-oriented assessments that deliver significant business value. It places importance on evidence-based management.
  4. Influencing Business in Society: We emphasise, through a strong focus on ethical business values, the importance of building businesses that are in harmony with societal needs.

Carear PathAt DCU Business School, we believe that the MBA should be about much more than just acquiring some useful extra tools for the management toolkit. It should also be a transformative experience at the personal level. Our value proposition is that our MBA is an educational experience that is both professionally and personally transformative, aimed at developing business leaders with the ambition and enterprise to help create a better, more sustainable world and featuring leading edge thinking with tangible application. Graduates of our programme talk about how they have grown in confidence, how their own self-awareness as leaders has deepened, and how their perspective on business management has been raised to a more strategic level. Our graduates tell us that these 'personal growth' effects of the MBA become very apparent back in their workplaces, in terms of the issues to which they are invited to contribute, the roles they are asked to take on, and in how they are perceived as future leaders.
