Graduate Profile:
Liviu Claudiu Dosoftei | Masters in Business

My name is Liviu, and I have successfully graduated from the Master of Business Programme. If you’re wondering how to wisely spend one year of your life, I strongly recommend that you enrol for the MB (Master of Business) Programme available at Institute of Technology Carlow. It will be the place where all the long hours of study and the tremendous effort you put in during the Bachelor Degree will start to make sense. To me, it did reveal whole new ways and a few different perspectives from which I now analyse a business. Being able to acquire a Master Degree is hugely important for my future as well as for my personal development. Therefore, I have no second thoughts in recommending the MB Programme to all of you interested in expanding your knowledge in the business area.
