Here’s the big question: what is the cost of an MBA in Ireland? There is getting away from the fact that an MBA can be very expensive and that they also requires a lot of hard work.

Things to consider

Fees vary from one college to another. Accreditation can also make a huge difference to price. There are three main accreditation bodies:

  • The Association of MBAs (AMBA) in London accredits MBA programs in the UK
  • In the US, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredits business schools in America
  • In Europe, the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is responsible for accrediting business schools

Some MBAs are accredited by all three. These MBAs are highly prized. There are only 59 triple-accredited MBA business schools in the world. However, that does not mean that these MBAs are the best for your career and aspirations. You will need to do your research beforehand in order to find the one that works best for you. It is also worth finding out about lecturers and guest lecturers on an MBA. These can have an impact on your career by introducing you to the right kind of contacts.

Prices

Executive MBAs generally take 2 years part-time. These allow students to work while studying. If you are paying for the course yourself, instead of being financed through your employer, this may be more manageable. However, the prices can still be steep. Here are some sample MBA fees in Ireland.*
