The Diploma in Leadership Development helps participants to become better leaders. It is about understanding how they themselves contribute to their eventual success and that of their teams and organisations. Participants will develop insight into their current leadership style, actively shift any leadership obstacles and bring about a renewed sense of leadership empowerment and purpose. Built on strong theoretical principles that are brought to life and tested in participative module sessions, the programme is challenging and highly experiential. Participants are required to examine, share and learn from their own experiences, utilising and implementing fresh insight, tools and techniques.
Leading a team within an organisation is a prerequisite for this programme as some modules are focused solely on working with teams and therefore participants need to be able to fully participate in or contribute to the programme. Moreover, participants must be open to critically examining and building upon their own approach to lead.

In general, participants must have at least 8 years of management experience and be referred by a senior executive within their organisation who is familiar with your role and responsibilities and can provide a detailed first-hand account. Leading a team within an organisation is a prerequisite - some modules are focused solely on working with teams, so if the participant is not leading a team, they won't be able to fully participate in or contribute to the programme. Moreover, participants must be open to critically examining and building upon their own approach to lead. Admission to the programme is a selective process based on professional achievement and organisational responsibility and a call with the Programme Director may form part of the application process.
Participants should also hold a primary degree or equivalent professional qualification. Consideration will also be given to applicants who do not hold a primary degree but whose depth of industry/organisational experience, deems them suitable participants.
To apply for this programme, please contact James Bannigan who would be delighted to discuss the application procedure with you further.
A completed application form, digital photograph and copy of transcripts for all university-level degrees (if applicable and excluding those taken at UCD) will be required. A telephone interview with the Programme Director will form part of the application process. The interview helps determine whether the programme is the most appropriate educational solution for the applicant.
