Blended learning delivery mode (2 days per month on Mayo Campus plus online engagement). This is a 60 credit Special Purpose Award at level 7 which is aimed at those who work in or aspire to a position of supervisory management.

Why Study?: 

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills required to manage people and other resources on a daily basis in order to help achieve management objectives. Students gain knowledge in the areas of:

  • Personnel management
  • Communication
  • Planning
  • Organising
  • Leadership
  • Motivation and evaluation
  • Business skills

To facilitate the (adult) working cohort of students, we use a combination of classroom-based teaching along with online learning resources.

It is also expected that the adult learner will engage in significant self-directed learning. 

The course is delivered in ‘block delivery’ mode over approximately two-days per month (Thursdays and Fridays).

This course is primarily assessed through continuous assessment. The forms of assessments may include:

  • Projects
  • Business reports
  • Case studies
  • Role-plays and presentations undertaken on an individual or group basis.

There will also be one end of year examination for the module Financial & Economic Environment.
