KUDOS
1) No, spouse of student cannot accompany the student. Also, even if s/he did, an employer must sponsor a work permit for the spouse, the chances of which are very slim in the current labour market (Ireland's current unemployment rate 12.3%)
2) Post MBA stay is provided for 1 year
The chances of immigrants (from non-english speaking countries) finding an "MBA-worthy" job in the current marketplace is very slim. Post MBA options here is all about your connections (network) and less about the degree itself (ie., its not really a meritocracy). Check this post again in a week, I'll post some useful articles that you must read before you put your hard earned money down on the program.

Sorry for the delay in getting back. Here's some more information to help you make up your mind. Here's a general article about the state of European MBAs. Grab your hands on that book if you can (I bought mine too late!). That candidate speaks about a European MBA that's ranked in the top 20 in the world. So you really have to think about putting your money down on a college that's in the bottom 10 of the FT rankings

Furthermore, if you are a non-local, the odds of finding a job worthy of the MBA are slim. Review these news articles carefully:
http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/ra ... 34043.html
http://finfacts.ie/irishfinancenews/art ... 4678.shtml
The articles are a few years old but, as you should know, attitudes take generations to change. Finally, the local job hunt hinges on networking (who you know, and by extension, nepotism & cronyism) than on real meritocracy (what you are). So your qualification will mean little after you complete the MBA. If you're a non-local, you will likely not have a shot at managerial and professional jobs after the MBA.

@drmzfire, can you please throw some more light on the job market. I have heard that although the chances of finding a job for a non-native MBA are slim, there are still opportunities for MBAs with a background in IT as Dublin is the hub for all the major IT firms in Europe.
I am currently evaluating my options for an MBA which I plan to go for in 2015. UCD came across as a nice option but your post and the links shared by you have raised a few concerns in my mind :-D

Can you please help me out here?

Thanks in advance
