DCU Business School is delighted to introduce significant new developments at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. New postgraduate programmes include the Professional Doctoral Programme and the MBS in Human Resource Management. In addition, the Executive Masters in Entrepreneurship is delivered in partnership with the Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship, whilst the MBS in Corporate Leadership has been developed for senior Chartered Accountants in partnership with the ICAI.
The Professional Doctoral Programme offers professionals - currently in senior management roles - the opportunity to develop their career and contribute to knowledge of management practice through research.
“This new programme combines scholarly academic theory-building with professional practice at the highest level,” says programme chair, Dr. Siobhain McGovern. “There is a specific focus on the generation and development of novel applied knowledge whereby participants demonstrate and hone their skills through their individual action-research project.”
Successful completion of the programme leads to the award of Doctor of Business.
Two new undergraduate programmes have recently been launched by DCU Business School: the BSc in Quantitative Finance DC236, for students with strong mathematical ability and the BSc in Marketing, Innovation and Technology DC240. The first of its kind in Ireland, this programme is offered by DCU Business School in conjunction with the Faculty of Engineering and Computing and the Faculty of Science and Health.
Graduates of this degree will be employed as marketing specialists in a range of fast-growing industries such as telecoms, software, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. According to Declan Hughes of the Science, Technology and Innovation Group, Forfas “There is a demand for ‘tech savvy’ marketers across the medium to high tech sectors - from Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to the emerging life-sciences and biotech sector.”
Combined with their technological know-how, one year’s paid work experience in the high-tech sector will place these graduates at a competitive advantage when job seeking. Due to the late launch of this programme, students must apply for DC240 through the CAO Change of Mind option before July 1st 2006.
