Future managers must have the capacity to be team players, to motivate and lead others, to communicate and negotiate effectively, and must possess excellent interpersonal skills. The MSc in Marketing Practice transforms graduates into highly professional managers.

Based at The Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, UCD, this is a one-year, full-time masters degree programme that has been carefully structured to facilitate its participants’ professional development. The programme uses the concept of ‘action learning’ to blend graduates’ existing theoretical knowledge with real commercial experience in a variety of marketing situations, thus improving creative, technical, motivational, leadership,
communication and inter-personal skills. In short, teaching them to practice as managers.

Programme participants – referred to as ‘Marketing Advisors’ – work closely with clients ranging from start-up concerns to multi-national organisations, while undertaking professional assignments such as:
• Marketing and business strategy development
• Quantitative and qualitative market research
• Market feasibility studies
• Consumer surveys
• Economic impact studies.

Personal and professional skills developed during the course include:
• Leadership
• Motivation and team building
• Client and project management
• Implementation and control of plans
• Self-reliance and individual decision making
• Time management
• Communication – written and oral
• Problem solving
• Analytical skills
• Critical thinking
• Confidence building
• Negotiation and conflict resolution.

The personal and professional development is achieved through:
• Client assignments
• Communication skills series
• On-going support and guidance from management team
• Structured feedback and appraisal process
• Mentor programme
• In-company executive shadowing
• Business networking
• Action learning dissertation
• Courses in contemporary issues in business and marketing
• Lectures in leading edge management thought
• Briefing seminars from leading business people.

The programme encourages applications from international students and those whose first language is other than English.
Applicants must submit:
• An up-to-date curriculum vitae
• Two passport size photographs
• A non-refundable application fee of €32 – cheque or postal order made payable to ‘UCD Marketing Development Programme’
• A short statement – 300 words maximum – entitled: “Why I should be accepted on the MSc. in Marketing Practice Degree
Programme”

This statement should:
Draw on the applicant’s personal experience and emphasise relevant experience(s) demonstrating initiative, teamwork, leadership skills and problem solving ability.
There are two intakes – in the Autumn of each year and the following Spring – the deadline for receipt of applications for both is end-March each year. Individual interviews are conducted with shortlisted applicants between April and June each year, with successful candidates recalled for final interview (group format).

The Master of Science in Quantitative Finance attracts numerate, competitive students seeking careers in finance that stretch their quantitative talents. The two-year full-time programme provides an integrated and balanced curriculum of finance and computational methods that accommodates students of diverse backgrounds.

The 4-semester programme comprises 18 courses, an internship and a major project. The curriculum gives students the knowledge and skills to develop quantitative security pricing models and trading strategies for managing portfolios of equity, fixed income and derivative securities and for managing corporate financial risk.

Programme structure
The MScQF is a small programme limited to about 20 students per year. The design of the curriculum presumes relatively little prior training in either finance or mathematics. The two-year full-time MScQF integrates the content of the one-year MBS in Finance with nearly the
equivalent of a masters in applied financial mathematics. The two-year structure affords the opportunity for a summer internship with a financial firm, a crucial component of the entire training and job-hunting process.
Assessment is by both examination and project work.

Careers
Career options for MScQF graduates include funds management, investment banking, financial engineering, and corporate treasury management. The MScQF also provides the recommended coursework component of the PhD in Finance at
UCD, leading to careers in academia as well as the finance industry.

Entry requirements
Appropriate degree fields include mathematical finance, economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and physics. As relatively little prior formal training in mathematics is presumed, we welcome applications from quantitatively inclined graduates from a standard commerce programme. Generally, applicants must have high grades and a high score on the mathematics component of the GMAT (or an equivalent test). Work experience can partially compensate for non-competitive grades.
