Launched with the goal of achieving better gender balance at all levels in leading Irish businesses, the 30% Club supports scholarships programmes in leading third level institutions across Ireland. UCC is the latest institution to offer a 30% Club Scholarship to undertake the Executive MBA at Cork University Business School.

At the launch of the scholarship the Dean of Cork University Business School, Professor Thia Hennessy, said: “The under-representation of women in senior business roles is a great concern for all in society and is something about which I am personally very concerned. I am a great admirer of the work of the 30% Club and so I am especially delighted to launch this scholarship and give the opportunity to an aspiring female business leader to fulfil her potential through our Executive MBA programme”.
