Irish Management Institute sees 16% increase in graduate numbers 

The Irish Management Institute (IMI) has today (Friday 5th December) hosted its second Graduation Ceremony at the IMI’s Campus in Sandyford, Dublin. The winter 2014 ceremonies, held over two consecutive Fridays have seen graduates awarded Masters degrees and IMI Diplomas.

IMI Graduation

The awards graduates received ranged from the IMI Diplomas in an array of business areas to MSc. in Management Practice. This is an increase of 44 graduates compared to this time last year.

IMI Graduation

The increase in graduates this year, coupled with the IMI maintaining its position as the only business school in Ireland to be globally ranked among international providers of Customised Executive Education in the Financial Times (FT) 2014 Global Rankings, strengthens the success of the institute.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dr. Simon Boucher, Chief Executive of the Irish Management Institute, said: “Today marks a significant day for all our graduates as they celebrate their work and success over the many weeks, months and in some cases years of hard work here at the IMI. I want to congratulate and wish all our graduates every success in their future as they become managers of the future.
“Executive education is back on the corporate agenda and our graduates have graduated in very diverse range of management programmes from Marketing and Digital Strategy to Organisational Behaviour. Companies want executives that can apply their learning in the workplace environment and our specialist programmes allow them to do so.
“This year has been a particularly standout year for the IMI where the National Management Conference is firmly part of the business calendar and we have retained our global ranking for executive education. We look to build on our successes in 2015 with new programmes and welcoming new students into the IMI.”
