Would you believe it? Another year has come upon us. The expression groundhog day has been used a number of times in the past weeks. The new incoming MBA classes have completed both the Foundation Week (an intensive induction programme) and their first week of lectures culminating this evening with the annual Welcome Dinner.
Now that everyone is in the door, we invite all our MBA participants and their partners to dinner to celebrate the successful transition on to the UCD Smurfit MBA. This dinner hosted by the MBA Office takes place on the first Friday night of the new semester.
Before we pass over to our new friends, the MBA Office would like to congratulate one of our outgoing MBA participants, Zahira Sukran, who has won the UCD International Blog Competition, which is a great achievement. Zahira was a Full-time MBA on a scholarship from her home country, Malaysia, and her blog documented her personal experiences of doing the UCD Smurfit MBA and living in Dublin. She also provided regular contributions to the MBA Blog during her time in UCD Smurfit. Her award winning blog can be found at http://mbamoon.blogspot.ie/ and a favourite of ours is http://mbamoon.blogspot.ie/2013/04/good-bye-kinsale.html
This blog will now be taken over by a new batch of eager bloggers who will keep it alive and interesting throughout the new academic year.
A big welcome to our new bloggers for 2013-14!
MBA Programme Manager.
