Brian Marrinan, UCD Smurfit MBA Career Manager, has been awarded the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) inaugural Outstanding Individual Contribution Award at the AGCAS Awards for Excellence which took place in Exeter last week. This new award recognises his contribution to graduate careers services at local, national and international levels. Particularly commented on was the achievement of increasing student satisfaction of the MBA Careers service from outside the top 100 to 66th in the world in the Economist rankings in just three years, his contribution to third level careers in Ireland through his executive board position in AHECS, the Irish representative body, and his Chairing of the MBACSEA conference in Edinburgh this year which saw record attendance from international colleagues and recruiters over the 4 days of the conference.
This award, a first for UCD in AGCAS history, was highly competitive and Brian was the only winner of an award from outside the UK.
Please join us on the MBA team in congratulating Brian on this award.
