DCU Executive MBA International Week heads to the West Coast
The Association of MBAs (AMBA) accredited DCU Executive MBA is built on 4 foundational pillars, one of which is “transforming organisations”. Today’s organisations must grow markets and add business value while coping with constant external change and internal complexity.
In addition to this, the leaders of tomorrow need the skills, insights and cross-cultural exposure to be successful in the global and connected world that organisations operate in today.
In the age of global economic uncertainty, Silicon Valley is the engine of growth for the US economy, building revolutionary platforms for interconnected communities, instantly accessible knowledge and frictionless commerce. In many ways just like the Florentines and Venetians built Italy’s renaissance, the entrepreneurs and business of the Valley are building a new age.
It was for this reason that our current Executive MBA students jetted off to California as part of their International Study Week!
Students had the opportunity to visit a range of start-ups, cloud companies and incubators as well as the leading global technology companies. Some of these companies included Google, Salesforce and Oracle and WePay.
This key to this tour was to enable students to immerse themselves in the energy, culture and working ethos of San Francisco and Silicon Valley and learn how entrepreneurs, heedless of boundaries and possessed of youthful enthusiasm generate new ideas, assemble great teams, start up new ventures and create successful innovative companies.
We are looking forward to seeing how this invaluable exposure will be applied by our MBA students in their organisations and MBA projects over the coming months!
