"At last! A course that delivers exactly what our company needs. The Advance Business Programme exceeded my expectations in terms of real, concrete deliverables. A hands –on, practical condensed MBA - every busy business person’s dream. I found the interaction between the attendees to be thought provoking, challenging and oftentimes entertaining. The lecturers were superb in that the advice and discussions were based on practicalities and not theories. I have a much clearer vision for the future of our company and, more importantly, I now feel that I have been given the extra tools required to turn that vision into reality.”
Miriam Byrne, City Analysts, Dublin
“Over the past few years we paid out a large proportion of our budget on various consultants. Within one module of the course the information that we gained was more valuable than all the consultants advice combined. I would highly recommend The Advanced Business Programme to anyone serious in being successful in business.”
Paul Kearns, Fleetwash, Dublin

Since taking this course I am running the Marketing section in my company and it has worked wonders for new business on the internet and also using all the tools I have learned during the course to launch a new product. It has opened my eyes to what our company was lacking and has giving me the expertise to drive it in the right direction.
