5 Reasons for Postgraduate Study
Why should you study a Postgraduate course? Here are 5 reasons why we think you should.
To Complement your Primary Degree or Work Experience
While many of our Postgraduate Programmes are a natural progression from undergraduate study, there are a number of courses specifically designed for those who wish to complement their studies with new skills and knowledge. For example we offer a number of courses for non-business graduates who want to gain the management competencies to advance their careers in their specialist areas such as Engineering and Science or want to change into a new field and fast track their career.
Further Development of your Knowledge and Skills in a Specialist Field
Many of our postgraduate programmes are a natural progression from undergraduate, whereby you can further advance your expertise in your chosen specialism. Due to the intensive nature of our courses, you will learn about a wide range of topics through practical and innovative ways. Our Postgraduate Programmes are also a great way for professionals to up-skill in specialist areas that are in demand by organisations today. You have the opportunity to advance your career opportunities by complementing your employment experience with study in areas such as Digital Marketing, HR Strategy or Corporate Treasury.
Improved Career and Networking Prospects
DCU Business School Graduates remain a part of the DCU Business School Alumni Network, far beyond graduation and throughout their careers. Through the DCU Business School Alumni Network our graduates remain actively connected to the school. Many, who have gone on to successful careers in a variety of fields, come back to deliver seminars and workshops to our Postgraduate students. We also have a number of networking events throughout the year, where students and our graduates get to meet with each other. These include our monthly Business School Alumni Breakfasts and the Annual Marketing Group Breakfast.
Academic Development at a Professional Level
Many of our courses are recognised by professional bodies. These accreditations recognise the quality of alumni of the programmes and their career progression, the market positioning of the programmes nationally and internationally, the curriculum content and delivery system, the extent to which the programmes have an international focus, its balance between academic and managerial dimensions, and the appropriateness of the faculty who deliver the programmes. Accreditations include the CIPD for our HR Programmes and CAI exemptions for our Accounting Programmes.
Development of Transferable Skills
As well as developing knowledge in a specialist area, a key focus in the design and delivery of our programmes is to develop your transferable skills. Rather than just large lectures and exams, we have a range of innovative teaching methods and assessments to develop the range of skills necessary to operate successfully in a business environment, including analytical, technical, team-working, presentation, report writing and communication skills. Through these activities, you will personally develop into a strong and confident business professional in your chosen field.
