  • Non-EU Irish residents must have ‘Stamp 4’ residency immigration status or above to be eligible.
  • RECENT GRADUATES of full-time level 8 degree programs are not eligible for Springboard funding for one year after graduation date but may apply through PAC as fee-paying students.

What is the Master of Business in Internationalisation?

The MBS Internationalisation program is a one-year taught postgraduate business program that is aimed at students who are interested in developing the skills and knowledge to work in international business environments. Ireland’s export economy has created a set of world-class companies and a supporting ecosystem of SMEs that in particular has created a demand for internationally-orientated business graduates. This course brings graduates to the cutting edge of the discipline by offering an international program of study incorporating modules in international business negotiations, international strategy, and international entrepreneurship. The program aspires to produce graduates who make a critical contribution to the performance and success of international-oriented businesses.

Unique Features of the Programme

  • Graduates will be uniquely equipped with a comprehensive range of skills in all major management and marketing processes (in international strategy, innovation and creativity, international marketing, and digital marketing). A rigorously applied approach is taken to the program, with mandatory engagement with live companies, to develop core specialist skills in international business and marketing practice and management.

  • In light of the importance of developing good exposure for our students to international business environments, the MBSI program is now offered as a Double Degree master program which is part of a Joint Awarding Authority Agreement between SETU Waterford and QQI in Ireland and Brest Business School, France. In launching the program at SETU Waterford (formerly WIT), Minister Brendan Howlin stated: “This double degree program represents exactly the type of collaborative, innovative, and focused approach that we hope to see more from our higher education sector. I see the double degree venture being undertaken by SETU Waterford and Brest Business School as a valuable contribution to enhancing Ireland’s capacity, and that of the South East region, to prosper”.

  • With this innovation to the program, students registered on the MBSI at SETU Waterford have the opportunity to study several common modules with students in the Master of International Business (MIB) program at Brest Business School in France. This comprises a joint study on shared modules and other research activities. Two of the shared modules are delivered directly to the combined student cohort with one module delivered in Brest and another in Waterford.
