Declan Costello |   STUDENT

My role as a Chemist in the Health Services Executive involves a significant amount of people management and I felt that this course would provide me with a fresh insight and new ideas towards my personal approach to management. The course is primarily delivered online with two on-site deliveries; the onsite modules are an initial introduction and a Negotiation Skills module in year 2. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the latter module required remote delivery during my term. The online delivery involves a mix of live & recorded lectures, with significant online resource availability. The structured delivery on Blackboard, whilst initially intimidating, becomes easily navigable and a superb resource. Additionally, access to the library (online and physically) and the support of fellow students is of immense assistance. The course is challenging and does require a significant time commitment, but is certainly manageable with careful time management and structuring. The course has equipped me with relevant information and confidence to advance in my career. I can thoroughly recommend the Diploma in Management as a worthwhile, challenging and rewarding undertaking.
