Athlone Institute of Technology has extended the application deadline for their Executive MBA programme scholarships for Members of the Gaelic Players Association (GPA). The new deadline for scholarship applications is now Friday the 8th of June. This will give GPA members more time to submit their applications while also recognising that this is a very busy time of the year for players.
GPA Player Engagement Officer with special responsibility for education, Noel Connors said, “This partnership between AIT and the GPA is a fantastic opportunity for our members to improve their career opportunities in a top class college like AIT. We would encourage any inter-county player in the locality or further afield who might be interested in this MBA programme to get in contact with the GPA if they have any questions about the course or if they wish to apply. At the GPA we are passionate about helping our members to thrive on and off the field of play.”
The Executive MBA programme is a 2-year part-time offering with classes held on Friday afternoons and the occasional Saturdays, ideally suited to fit around the professional and personal commitments of players.
The programme is delivered by academics with proven experience in both industry and academia, immersing students in a cohesive learning environment that melds theory and practice. Subject areas include Finance, Management, Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Innovation, all rounded off with a Management Consulting Project and a dissertation to consolidate learning. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on academic content, most of the assessments have been designed to ensure currency and relevance, thus ensuring students can apply skills and knowledge learned to their own workplace.
