The UCD Smurfit MBA aims to develop the next cadre of business leaders by providing participants with the anticipatory capabilities, decision-making skills, and interpersonal capacity to hit the ground running in their careers.

“At its core, leadership is the ability to chart a path through the haze of uncertainty; to have the courage of one’s convictions to pursue new paths; and to communicate and influence in ways that aligns others around your vision,” says Dr Ciaran Heavey, academic director of MBA programmes at the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.

“The MBA Leadership Development Programme bestows on participants the full suite of leadership, communication, and interpersonal competencies necessary to maximise their impact as future leaders.

It instils a growth rather than a fixed mindset of personal development.”
