Be prepared for responsibility and the rewards and problems that come with responsibility. It is very important to be comfortable making decisions and living with them. While it is impossible to be right all of the time the majority of decisions you make have to be correct.

Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

PR Executive Graduate Testimonial

Ciana Moulton PR Executive for Cleverbug "I believe that the MSc in Event Management gave me the opportunity to gain vast experience in the events sector.

It taught me skills in areas such as corporate communications, Digital-Media, and SEO, which allowed me to grow my career beyond just events and apply them in a business setting. During my MSc year, I interned with Cultural Events Company Happenings which I think was a crucial element of my success in the program.

I joined CleverBug as a member of the Events team, was then promoted to Events team lead and eventually Head of PR, In this role I oversee all PR and Event activities. Event Management will teach a person how to handle high-pressure situations, and you'll meet people from all different walks of life.

I firmly believe I would not have the success I do today if I had not made the crazy decision to walk away from my comfortable job in Microsoft Ireland and return to education....it gave me the skills and work ethic that are required to succeed. Looking back now, I wouldn't swap that experience for the world. As it has formed the foundations on which I have built my career. A Masters opens doors that you never imagined existed."
