Modules have been chosen to reflect the current business environment. The delivery of our modules is over two semesters (September-January & February-May) followed by the Summer semester pathways (see below). Our programmes are normally delivered through lectures, presentations, and intensive workshops. Students are encouraged to learn independently, through significant reading and assignments, both on their own and working in groups, prior to a class and afterwards. For an overview on the below listed modules, expected learning outcomes, teaching & learning methods and assessments used, please use course finder for your programme.
||In Semester 1 you will come to understand the process of strategy formulation and implementation, innovation, and how technology can be used to create operational and strategic value and develop your career plan to achieve your ambitions.
||In Semester 2 you will learn how to put this knowledge into practice through Strategy Live, where you work both in teams and individually on current strategy problems faced by organisations. Through our modules on Leadership and Financial Management, you gain insights into how to be both
a follower and a leader and how to analyse the potential of an organisation to create financial value.
||The final semester (May-August) has a range of options, including a BRP working on a live problem for a client, a work placement* or an academic dissertation. Part-time students complete their Business Research Project in year two.
*Work placements are only available to full-time students. Placements are obtained either through support from the Placement Office or student generated opportunities (subject to approval).
“What is unique about the course is...the Business Research Project. It really gives you a great understanding for the future when you go into the workplace. The programme helps you transfer knowledge into practice. It’s all a lead up towards the Business Research Project so everything you have learned you finally apply to the final thesis of the course which is really important as you learn the skills and knowledge to go forward. It really is a worthwhile course to take. You learn so much in terms of your academic learning as well as your personal development.”
Sean Harnett, MSc Strategy & Innovation Graduate.
Overall, I had a wonderful experience studying in Maynooth University. Not only did it give me immense knowledge in the subject areas I was really interested in, but it also provided exposure to the real world business environment and challenges and exciting employment opportunities.’
Giedre Visockaite, Strategy & Innovation Manager at Kirby Group Engineering Limited
‘Undertaking part-time study whilst working full-time was initially daunting for me. The course structure enabled me to balance both my work and my studies. The modules studied provided an in-depth insight into the core elements of strategy and innovation.
