An MBA Designed Around You.

  • Inspiring tomorrow's business leaders

    With your MBA team you will learn, examine, reflect, debate and grow. Our purpose is to add to your skills, open your mind, challenge your thinking and broaden your perspectives through this MBA programme. To help you achieve your full potential; to grow personally and professionally, so that in turn you can help businesses and organisations grow.
  • A 3 day block is easier and more effective

    Students find that our unique MBA programme structure of eight blocks of 3 days each year works really well for them. They can more easily plan around work commitments and evenings and weekends are less affected. We offer the only MBA in Ireland with this form of flexible structure. Students find that, while here, they can switch off from work and focus 100% on their studies.
  • Genuine Business Pedigree

    From its inception, the University of Limerick has forged deep relationships with industry. For the past three decades these connections have helped ensure our executive MBA programme teaching is current, relevant and immediately applicable. The MBA programme features guest lectures from industry leaders and, of course, the examination of real world case studies.
  • Internationally Recognised by AMBA-AACSB

    Our AMBA-AACSB accredited Executive MBA is ranked in the top 2% of business schools internationally for the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education. The coveted AMBA accreditation is awarded to MBA programmes of the highest standards in innovative teaching, learning, curriculum, career development and employability. The University of Limerick’s Kemmy Business School was also awarded the AACSB International accreditation, joining the world’s 5% of business schools in achieving this distinguished award.
  • PMI-GAC Accredited

    The University of Limerick, Kemmy Business School, has been accredited by the Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programmes (GAC). This specialised accrediting body assures the quality of project management programmes requirements and is globally recognised in every industry.
  • Strong calibre of professionals

    An executive MBA programme is a shared learning experience. To create such a dynamic you need a group of students with a variety of experiences, perspectives and ideas. We are fortunate to attract a strong and varied cross section of high calibre people to our MBA, from both indigenous and international businesses and organisations.
  • A supportive environment and team

    Students often remark on the personable, supportive nature of our executive MBA programme team. We know our students have busy lives, we know studying an MBA can be challenging and we know there are aspects of our programme that some students will struggle with. To help, we provide extra support where needed; including extra lunchtime tutorials on challenging subjects, guidance on thesis writing and one-on-one coaching. We also remain conscious that some flexibility is required to help facilitate urgent business needs.
