Meet BIFE students who have graduated from this course...

"Choosing the Advanced Management FETAC Level 6 course at the Bray Institute was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I had completed a FETAC Level 5 course in Business and was determined to progress to the next level with the hope of realising a lifelong dream to attend college and obtain my degree.I came across the Institutes prospectus online and was amazed at the choice of courses now available to me.I cannot stress enough how beneficial it has been for me to attend the course in BIFE. Everything that was covered in the classes has been of huge benefit to me here at college and made the transition almost seamless for me. Course content is current, relevant and taught in a very professional manner, in a welcoming and friendly environment." 

Alison Duff progressed from BIFE to a degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management at DIT.
