I think this very much depends on your goals. These are very similar universities in some ways. DCU's business school is more trendy, with a reputation for digital and entrepreneurial business.

Limerick is a more corporate place and, personally, I might pick Limerick both as a city and as a business school. However, Limerick doesn't have an MSc in management. It has a MA in business and an MSc in international management, both of which seem very light on quant skills and accounting basics.

Yes considering my goals I was thinking about DCU as the curriculum is also good and importantly it is in Dublin so I guess the corporate connections will be more and in turn the job chances will more. (is this right thinking).
But as u said Limerick is a more corporate place is it better than Dublin. Bcoz many major corporate companies are already there and also new ones are coming up in Dublin. And if incase the UCD replies positively then which one to choose.

I think this really depends on so many factors, but it doesn't make sense to attend DCU if UCD is possible.

hi duncan,

I hold an undergraduate degree in international Business from UK (2016) and i went back to my home country (India) and tried for work experiences in the finance sector but had no luck so now im planning to do a MSC finance or Graduate diploma in finance from Dublin Institute of technology. im also considering the Chartered Insurance professional (CIP) designation alongside the masters program so i have chances to be an underwriter in the insurance industry as well. I wanted ask your opinion on the job prospects for me in ireland after completing the degree and certification considering i have minimal to no experience in any field. Although i did manage my family retail business for about a year or so.

Why not aim a bit higher? Smurfit has an excellent MSc in Finance.
