From my experience, it's easier with things like getting visas, opening bank accounts, jobs, etc. if you have already gotten into a school there. Of course, I know some Americans with Irish passports because of their heritage, so that might make things easier from an administrative standpoint. Perhaps that also applies to you and/or your fiance.

What school are you interested in?

i was looking at Cork, i was really hoping on some recomendations that won't empty my wallet or at least offered some kind of student aid. We're planning on moving there in 2011 or 2012, and we have already started saving up for the move. We have already decided on moving there, i was just hoping i could get my MBA there instead of getting my MBA when or if i go back to the States.

Hi,

FYI, Some colleges in Ireland participate in U.S Federal AIid FAFSA. Such as Trinity College, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate business school. You can borrow up to full cost including books and accomodation. You don't need a visa to go to Ireland if you are U.S citizen.

There is only one two-year MBA in Ireland (Griffith); it's traditionally one year long in Europe.

My guess is that, as in the UK, there's no guarantee of employment but most students will find jobs.

I'm not sure that either of these will have good employment outcomes. Ask them for statistics and averages.

Contact the admissions staff of those colleges. Or use LinkedIn to contact people who have done their MBAs at those colleges.

As you will have discovered already, DBS and Griffith are less well know, private colleges. I think the award degrees from other institutions. They are less prestigious than universities or university colleges. Generally employers will understand they will recruit students who cannot get into the universities.

Furthermore, the MBA in Europe is generally a degree for people with three or more work experience. I think these two private schools recruit people without work experience. There is less demand in the West for MBAs without work experience becaus of the importance of team working and soft skills.

So, I would expect similar outcomes to those with undergraduate degrees.

Start with these MBA programs if you are looking to do your MBA in Ireland and then work there afterwards:

UCD - Smurfit
University of Dublin - Trinity

There are a few other accredited schools in Ireland that offer part-time MBAs, but other than that the others won't offer you great career support or placement assistant (as an international student.)
