Reacting to the announcement, James said ”I was delighted to learn that I had received the Clark scholarship to aid me with my studies in the full time taught Masters program at Maynooth University over the coming 12 months. Apart from the financial support I now have the opportunity to work alongside Clark with various projects over the duration of my course and to build a professional relationship with Clark which will aid me with my professional career development in the future.”


Speaking this morning Deirdre Coghan Murray of Clark said “We are really delighted to be supporting James with his Masters program through Maynooth University and we look forward to working with him as part of his Research Thesis.  At Clark we believe in the value of life-long learning and we know it takes courage and commitment to take a break from a full time role to study.

We wish James every success with his Masters.”


The Clark Recruitment and Executive Scholarship is open to all students working to complete his or her full-time one-year Master’s degree.  With a strong interest in entrepreneurship and innovation, the scholarship is open to students of both the MSc in Strategy and Innovation and the MSc in Business Management. Both Master’s programmes welcome students who are mid-career and feature business research projects as part of their course work.  This provides a great opportunity for the graduate student and Clark to partner on projects.
