Mention summer being a quiet time in the education sector, and you’ll likely get a wry chuckle from those of us working in the field. The building may be quiet with the students away, but the offices are hives of activity and planning as we prepare for the next academic year. This summer, National College of Ireland is holding a number of free events in Dublin that will help you not only with your educational choices, but with your chosen career. We’ve love to welcome you to some – or all – of these events over the coming months.
Go Further Sessions
NCI’s latest event series has been designed to help you go to go further in your career. Check out the videos from our first event, with speakers from Microsoft Ireland. Independent News & Media and OMD, Ireland’s leading advertising agency, will speak at further events, on 29th July and 12th August respectively; find out more or register online, and join us for a beer and some industry banter.
Summer Open Evenings
If you are planning to invest in yourself and your career, then education is the obvious step. We’ve outlined a few reasons here about why upgrading your qualification can give you that competitive edge. If you’re considering a course, drop in to one of our open evenings over the summer, and talk through your options.
MBA Taster Lunch
The MBA at National College of Ireland is underpinned by a strong foundation in enterprise and leadership, and emphasises the development of effective business and management skills to solve management problems through structured analysis, problem solving techniques, effective decision-making, and effective communications.
