Alumni Insights

Jessica Murphy

MSc International Business 2019, ISV Customer Program Manager at Microsoft

“The experience I gained has given me a new perspective on the global business world. It has taught me invaluable tools which have enhanced my knowledge of global marketing, cross cultural management, project management and financial management. The programme has also enabled me to build a strong network of individuals from different parts of the world.” 


Filippo Carli

MSc International Business 2020, Account Executive at Datadog 

"The MSc International Business gave me the possibility to understand international firms’ best practices to gain competitive advantage. I particularly appreciated its holistic and practical approach. Not only I had chance to work in project groups with people from all around the world, but I could also get in contact with multinational companies headquartered in Dublin. This combination is the key if you are eager to kick off your international career. I was part of a great group of friends and today we are all working for big corporates. If I look back, my experience in the MSc International Business was more than positive."

Soufana Al Fathil

MSc International Business 2020, Business Development Representative at Salesforce

"My time at Smurfit and in the MSc International Business programme really gave me the foundations for an exciting career in Business Development. The modules that were taught across the three semesters broadened my horizons in relation to the latest updates in the world of business and gave me the tools to analyse and understand the changes around us. One of my favorite modules was Cross Cultural Management, where our professor really stressed the importance of the society we lived in and all the underlying behaviors that make up each of our personalities and how we interact in a global environment. This really helped me understand my global cohort better and has helped tremendously when I speak to my customers across the Emerging Market region."
