As a graduate of the course, the opportunities that have been open to me during my four years have been numerous and have allowed me to develop a business concept from a first-year assignment into a start-up business. The internship in Year 3 also offers students the opportunity to gain real and relevant experience in an organisational environment.
My degree widened the range of jobs I could apply for and I got a job straightaway as an inventory analyst in Unilever Ireland. I am currently back undertaking PhD research using simulation and optimisation technologies in supply-chain management.
When I graduated, I started working as a logistics administrator in Independent Express Cargo, where I did my work experience as a part of my degree. Besides giving the specialist knowledge and skills desired by modern companies, the course has the advantage of creating opportunities to establish career links.
On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.
