Varsha Ann Jacob 2
Varsha Ann Jacob, from Bangalore, India, recently completed her MBA in Project Management with Dublin Business School and now works as a Software Engineer in IBM, Dublin. She was drawn to DBS after reviews that described the college as “one of the top private business schools in Dublin.”

"The Project Management course which I chose to do is a very specialized business course that I would recommend as it had the perfect blend of all the business elements to make a good project manager; which I think is a necessary job requirement in any field,” she explained.

Varsha Ann also explained how the class was taught in different ways, encouraging team work and also simulating real life business scenarios, readying them for a career in project management.

Away from studying, Varsha Ann was actively involved in the many extra-curricular activities available to students in the college. She was a member of the women’s soccer team and the Surf Society, taking a trip to Bundoran, Donegal, for a surf camp organized by the college.  Her soccer team, were rewarded for their efforts throughout the year at the annual formal ball in the Hilton hotel. Their season included “several eleven a side matches against UCD and IT Tallaght; which would not have been possible without all the practice sessions and the support and efforts of our coach, John Martin.”

Varsha Ann says she owes her first job in Dublin to attending a Careers Fair held in the college.  At the event she met representatives from Real Nation, a company dedicated to services in Education, Health, Environment, Consumer and Trade.  She spoke to them in detail at the open event and then applied online for a job, and has now been working for the company for 10 months. In conclusion Varsha Ann says, “I can’t thank DBS enough for making my Masters such a pleasant experience.”
