            2012-2016, BBA Entrepreneurship

            NUI Maynooth is home to a fantastic business school which has some of the countries top lecturers especially in Innovation and Design. There is a great support system for students where we can flourish and learn as much as possible to help us on our way to a success career. There are a huge amount of activities outside of the educational sectors of the college and the people attending the college are so friendly and welcoming to all. All in all, I am not looking forward to the sad day in 2016 where I have to pack up and leave and embark on the next chapter of life.
