About the course
Cork University Business School (CUBS)
The UCC CUBS Executive MBA allows students to develop an appreciation of how all aspects of an organisation interconnect, and an appreciation of the role each organisational function plays in delivering on goals and strategies.
The programme covers a multitude of areas including Ethics and Sustainability, Human Resources, Financial Analysis and Investment, Digital Transformation and Strategy.
A key component of the programme is The Leadership Development Framework which runs through the full two years of the Executive MBA. It allows each student to explore their own innate preferences in key personal leadership areas.
Through workshops and self-reflection our students analyse the contextual nature of leadership, while understanding their own approach to leadership and gaining an appreciation of their leadership development journey.
