Special Features

The programme is designed to be non-sector specific in order to capture the richness of diverse perspectives within the student body emanating from organisational and functional differences. At Queen’s University Management School we aim to add as much value as possible to the experience of studying for an Executive MBA. The ways in which we do this include the following:

Personal and Professional Development

Currently we have a partnership with the Chartered Management Institute. Among other things this allows students to:

  • Enrol as Associate Members of the Institute while studying for the MBA
  • Upgrade to Full Member status after successful completion of the MBA programme
  • Use their MBA to achieve Chartered Manager status, if they so wish, after successful completion of the MBA programme

Towards the end of their first year of study, students are required to attend a three-day personal/professional development session provided by an appropriate management trainer.

Queen’s University Management School is affiliated with the MBA Association in Ireland which, among other things, organises events especially for MBA students and provides further networking opportunities.

Study Trip Abroad

Towards the end of their second year of study, our MBA students are required to participate in a study trip abroad, which will normally last five to six days. The main aims of this element of the programme are to expose students to international perspectives on the study and practice of management and to facilitate international networking.
