Graduates from the Irish Management Institute (IMI) celebrated their achievement today at the IMI’s final graduation ceremony of the year. Held at the IMI Campus in Sandyford, the ceremony saw the largest number of graduates in the history of the IMI from a single semester.

Joined by their friends and families, the graduates represent some of the most dynamic and well-known companies from both Ireland and abroad, with organisations such as Zurich, the HSE, HP, Bank of Ireland, ESB, Irish Life, Ibec, Whirlpool, CPA Ireland, IPSEN and many more represented.

The IMI is Ireland’s premier provider of executive education. The Institute equips leaders to build the future through its range of high-impact short programmes and strategic, practical based Diploma programmes, as well as providing a flexible pathway for managers and leaders to get their full masters qualifications.

Graduate qualifications ranged from Diplomas in Management, Marketing and Digital Strategy, Strategy and Innovation, Strategic Human Resources Management and International Business Development.


IMI’s Spring 2018 schedule will include a new programme, Taking the Lead: Women in Leadership. This programme has been developed in partnership with the 30% Club and is based on feedback received by IMI from woman across the Irish business community. The programme promises to drive bottom-line value to organisations looking to enhance their leadership diversity.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Dr. Simon Boucher, Chief Executive of the Irish Management Institute, said:

“Today’s graduates are not only leaders in their respective fields, but also role models for manner in which they have embraced life-long-learning. The world of work is changing faster than ever before; continuing professional development is no longer an option, but an imperative. The commitment and sacrifice made by these graduates to achieve their qualifications will pay off professionally and personally well into the future.”
