Darragh Ó Drisceoil, Tourism Ireland, Marketing Assistant, Dublin/New York

'Towards the end of my undergraduate degree, I remember being faced with the choice of what to do next – go straight into a job, continue into postgraduate study, or go travelling? When I found out the Ibec Global Graduates programme combined all three options, the decision was easy. My 24-month placement with Tourism Ireland in Dublin & New York was the ideal start to my career and I was delighted to be offered a role in the organisation at the end of my placement.'


Michelle McEvoy, Hovione, Cork/Loures

'I was given lots of responsibility and the opportunity to work on my own initiative. I made great friends and enjoyed going to work every day because of the working environment. Everyone was always welcoming and helpful. Overall I found the programme to be an excellent insight into the world of International business and marketing.

Gillian Murphy, Brand Ambassador, Tullamore Dew

'The programme is without a doubt the best thing I have ever done. After graduating from college I was unsure if I wanted to continue my studies or to start working immediately, so when I learned about this programme which combined both work and the opportunity to study for a Postgraduate Diploma in Global Business Development from D.I.T., I couldn’t believe my luck. My brand ambassador role for Tullamore D.E.W. is diverse and exciting. No two days are the same and I am learning a lot about how to conduct business in an international environment. From hosting whiskey-tasting events to organizing parties for bartenders, this programme has been all I hoped for and so much more.'
