Must read

The Irish Management Institute and Cork University Business School, part of UCC, have topped the Financial Times’ rankings for quality of teaching on custom executive education programmes in Ireland.

IMI placed first in Ireland for the 14th time because of the quality of its teaching faculty as what is the longest-established centre for executive education in Ireland.

IMI was recognised by the FT for its short programmes, including a new Summer Series aimed at supporting decision-makers to develop the leadership skills necessary to manage change and transformation in an evolving business environment.

The organisation has also developed the Senior Executive Experience (SEE) to enhance the capabilities of senior leaders and encourage new ways of thinking around leadership, strategy, decision-making and negotiation.

“With business leaders across Ireland navigating a fast-changing business environment, it is crucial they continue to grow and enhance their leadership capabilities to successfully manage transformation,” said Shane O’Sullivan, CEO of IMI.

“Our executive education offering equips leaders with the right skills and capabilities to embrace change and enhance business growth in this shifting landscape.

“A culture of lifelong learning at leadership level is increasingly critical to business success and retention of key staff and we see this reflected in the growing number of participants returning to our programmes every year.

“We’re proud to be recognised for consistent excellence in the quality of our teaching, which is a real testament to the hard work, skill and care of our world class faculty.”

IMI and CUBS have been recognised by the Financial Times.

Prof Anthony McDonnell, interim Dean of Cork University Business School, commented: “We are very proud of this achievement which again displays the emphasis we have on quality and impactful education from undergraduate, to postgraduate to executive education.

“My thanks and congratulations to all my UCC/IMI colleagues whose hard work, expertise and skill lead to such recognition.”
