The Graduate Business School at Griffith College Dublin provides MBA and MSc programmes in International Business. These MBA courses are available on a full and part-time basis. Students who have sufficient professional work experience can choose to do the MBA in International Business programme and those without the requisite experience are directed to the MSc programme. This MBA program prepares graduates for the world of international business by providing an educational experience which is strongly vocational, academically rigorous and intellectually challenging - a key stepping stone to a career in international business management.
MBA/MSc in International Business - A Tripartite Experience
Griffith Graduate Business School has endorsed and embraced the Bologna spirit of the transfer and progression of students between institutions in different countries and in doing so, a number of close working relationships have been developed.
The College’s APL policies provide an opportunity for students with previous academic studies at Masters level in a Business/Management discipline to apply for APL exemption to a maximum 30 ECTS Credits from modules of the GCD MBA/MSc in International Business programme in Dublin.
One such opportunity provides students with a Tripartite Experience, allowing the unique prospect of studying in Berlin, Paris and Dublin, whereby modules from SRH Hochschule in Berlin and INSEEC Grand Ecole in Paris provide APL exemption from modules of the Griffith College MBA/MSc in International Business programme in Dublin. Based on these normal APL exemption arrangements, the learning objectives and curriculum content of individual modules in these institutions are mapped closely to GCD modules.
Students completing the Griffith College degree will have attended modules in Dublin totalling 30 ECTS Credits and will be supervised by a GCD Supervisor for the MBA/MSc dissertation. Those who complete their dissertation under GCD supervision will be awarded the GCD MBA/MSc in International Business.
Such students will, within this overall experience, undertake an internship, arranged by SRH Hoschule Berlin and INSEEC Grande Ecole, Paris, which, while formally not part of the GCD programme, nevertheless adds significantly to the breadth and depth of the management experience.
The students will have the opportunity of experiencing academic life, business life and student life in each of these three major European cities. Based on APL exemptions granted (30 ECTS Credits) from their studies in Berlin and Paris, the students complete the remaining ECTS credits at Griffith College and will complete their dissertation under the supervision of Graduate Business School supervisors in the normal way. The total experience of having studied in three major European cities, having experienced at first hand the cultural diversity, business and social of these three cities will undoubtedly add to their broader educational experience in obtaining their MBA/MSc in International Business. Over the next few years, other cities may be added to this initial list of locations.
