The Go Global Journey

The Go Global journey offers you world-class SME customised executive education, delivered by Ireland's fastest growing University; Dublin City University – the university of enterprise. Together, Enterprise Ireland and DCU have designed a unique and innovative blended learning programme where you will learn from the best and apply that learning in-company with the support of a dedicated Growth Advisor. Elements include;

  • Educational Masterclasses delivered in DCU: masterclasses are delivered by Irish-based faculty and have a facilitated, experiential focus. Experienced business people drawn from the SME sphere complement the masterclasses by sharing their growth challenges, reassuring you that you are not alone.
  • Intensive support from a dedicated Growth Advisor: your carefully selected Growth Advisor will work with you on a one-to-one basis as your leadership coach and on a team basis working with your top team in-company. The role of the Growth Advisor is to challenge and support you, ensuring you can easily implement the programme content to the needs of your business.
  • Peer Learning Networks; you will be assigned to a peer learning network for the duration of your Go Global journey, facilitated by a Growth Advisor. This provides a unique opportunity to learn from peers representing other sectors and disciplines. You will have the opportunity to reflect on masterclass content, discuss and seek advice on business challenges, all in a trusted, intimate environment.
  • An interactive online learning platform: will support you throughout the Go Global journey providing an anytime-anyplace facility to meet your peers, learn from international thought leaders, prepare and debrief between masterclasses, draw from additional resources, develop in-company plans using simple templates and track your Go Global progress.
