50% of Business and Management IRC Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarships Secured by CUBS Students

Sarah Greeley, John Paul Clifford and Richael Connolly were all awarded Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarships by the Irish Research Council earlier this year. 

Announced by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris TD, the three CUBS researchers were included on a list of 300 new projects that will be funded by the IRC. 

Coming from the departments of Marketing & Management, Economics, and Food Business & Development, the research that will be undertaken by Sarah, John Paul and Richael is indicative of the wide variety of disciplines and pathways that are available at the Business School. 

Additionally, of the 300 awards announced by Minister Harris, only four were classified under the Business & Management Discipline, with two of these were awarded to students in the Business School. 

Details and titles of the three CUBS projects: 

  • John Paul Clifford, ‘The role of cities in driving national growth’ 
  • Richael Connolly, Food Business & Development, ‘How does the Artisan Food Entrepreneur (AFE) experience business growth? An examination of business growth in a ‘post growth’ context’ 
  • Sarah Greeley, Marketing & Management’, Leading the Way: Developing the Identity of Future Leaders.
