Meet Our Team
Welcome from the Directors
As individuals and as employees, we must be able to evolve and grow, learn new skills and gain new educational qualifications throughout our working lives.
Action is essential for those who want to succeed in both the global and local business world.
If you are the kind of student who enjoys being challenged - intellectually, socially and personally, then your future is at Galway Business School. At Galway Business School, we know that tomorrow’s leaders will need to be able to respond to the world differently than we do today.
We follow in the footsteps of entrepreneurs and innovators and through our faculty, curriculum and global perspectives; we endow our students with the quality education, personal attention and unique experience that you are looking for.
Today, access to an internationally focused education is a necessity for our graduates if they are to remain competitive in the local and global marketplace.
Our mission is to transform our students for individual excellence and global citizenship. Transformation requires curiosity, courage and commitment – qualities that we seek and develop in our students.
Armed with these qualities, our students will not only understand the world of business, they will also be capable of making it better.
