The Queen’s University Management School (QUMS) at the Queens’s University of Belfast affords students the opportunity both in and outside of Ireland the opportunity to obtain business degrees at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. These programs specifically focus on the key areas of Management, Finance, Economics and Accounting.
A 2016 merger with the William J. Clinton Leadership Institute now allows students that are taking executive education or leadership courses to hear from a variety of experts. These individuals are based both within industry and within the academic stratosphere, with the facilities located at Riddel Hall in South Belfast. The curriculum allows for a standardized MBA approach as well as one that’s customized to a particular student.
In order to further enhance the educational opportunities, the school also has business terminals set up that allow students to follow the financial markets more closely on a regular basis. Within this setup are simulations that allow for practice trades to take place, allowing those students the chance to experience the highs and lows of this field, without enduring the painful risks involved.
