Global business leader, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and humanitarian advocate Denis O’Brien, who received an MBA from Boston College in 1982, has generously created the O’Brien Fellowship at the University. Irish citizens who matriculate in the Carroll School of Management’s full-time MBA program may qualify for the O’Brien Fellowship.
Candidates for the fellowship must be Irish citizens whose academic, professional, and other accomplishments reflect the high professional and personal standards of Mr. O’Brien, one of Ireland’s most prominent entrepreneurial and philanthropic leaders.
The O’Brien Fellowship will cover the full cost of attendance, including tuition, fees, books, and living expenses for two years (or the duration of the MBA program), as well as international travel. Eligible candidates will receive consideration for the fellowship during the initial application review by the Admissions Committee.
The deadline to apply for the 2020 O’Brien Fellowship is January 7, 2020. Candidates will be notified of their admission decision by March 18. Learn more about application requirements.
