The Postgraduate Diploma in Business and Management is a one-year programme that provides graduate-level instruction in core business disciplines. Students take six subjects over two semesters that cover both quantitative and general management topics. They will learn about, among other things, human resource planning, the management of change, leadership and strategic direction, financial policy, and the principles of business research.
The programme, which runs from September to April, can be taken from anywhere in the country and is delivered through a blend of self-directed study and scheduled weekend seminars at the IPA campus in Dublin.
