“Leadership and Entrepreneurship in Ireland” hardly speaks to the experience gained and lessons learned during our time in Ireland. The exposure to various leaders, the application in a real-world setting, and the benefits of collaboration with your teammates all provided invaluable experience. This course is the perfect blend of graduate-level coursework, combined with the majesty of the Green Isle. I treasure the connections I made throughout the trip, and highly recommend the opportunity!”
Bradd Williams, Director of Business Development at DaVita
“Our trip to Ireland was a learning experience I will never forget and reference often. I learned how to be a better leader and truly understand what it means to lead a team. The speakers, atmosphere and learning experience in Ireland was certainly the best class I took in the CU Denver MBA program.”

“When I reflect on my MBA, the experiences studying in Ireland and China are at the top of the list. The Ireland study abroad course is life changing and a golden opportunity to learn, grow, and meet some amazing people. The value of the connections you make, alone, is worth the price of admission. Expect to interact with Irish people of the highest pedigree with entertaining and inspiring stories that you can draw on for a lifetime.”
Kristi (Garber) Thompson, Strategic project management and marketing leader??
"The Leadership and Entrepreneurship in Ireland course was the highlight of my MBA experience! Meeting and learning from high level international government and business leaders, completing a team project for an Irish start-up company, and interviewing a highly successful leadership team developed business skills and expanded my professional network - both in the U.S. and abroad - far beyond what I expected. Even more valuable than these things though, was what I learned about myself. Leading others requires getting to know oneself, and this course provided the framework and focus to do exactly that. My experience in Ireland made me a better leader, a better teammate, and a better all-around person. And as a bonus, it was a blast! The leaders, people, places, experiences...I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. My advice - prepare to suck every last drop out of the trip, and go - definitely go!"
