Celebrating 50 years of the UCD MBA

On day two of this years Foundation Week programme the students took a little time out from the business of the day to meet with Ciarán Ó Hógartaigh, Dean of the UCD Business Schools who hosted a coffee break for the incoming classes at which he welcomed both full-time and EMBA classes to to the School, wished them the best on their MBA journey and hoped they would use this time to explore their interests and abilities in a safe environment.

He also noted that this is an important year for the School since it marks the 50th anniversary of the first intake of MBA students to the university in 1964 making the programme Irelands first MBA and one of the first in Europe.

Once the formal greeting was over it came time to cut and of course eat the cake supplied for this auspicious occasion.  Ciaran did the honours and slices were distributed to all interested parties.   All students and staff who sampled it were very complimentary.

PS It was chocolate biscuit cake in case any0ne is wondering.
