Graduate Stories

Information Systems Management Graduate - Gary McHugh

I graduated from the GMIT Galway campus in 2012 with a first class honours Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Information Systems Management. I found my time at the college in GMIT to be both challenging and enjoyable. I found the classes to be interesting and the lecturers to be both approachable and involved in the progress of their students.

Since I left GMIT 7 months ago, I have been working as an IT Support Engineer for a major international banking firm in Tokyo, Japan. I am only at the early stages of my career but I feel that the technical-based learning coupled with the business theory that I have learned have given me a strong foundation to build my professional career upon. The lecturers on my course put a large amount of time and effort into our professional and personal development of which I am very appreciative. I made lifelong friends during my time at GMIT and had some of the best years of my life (so far).
