Enabling Business Resilience

Business resilience is essential in today's volatile marketplace. It is a principle that reaches beyond business continuity and into all aspects of an organisation. In order to create, build and maintain resilience, the management and leadership team of any organisation needs to be able to asses the threats and opportunities in their markets, and to develop the strategies that help to protect their business. This course aims to equip participants to address strategic and innovation challenges impacting organisations that need to transform and adjust to the emerging business climate.

The course is open to returners to the workforce and those not currently in employment who meet the eligibility criteria, below, as well as those already in employment.

Communicating with Confidence

About the course

The programme's overall aim is to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage and lead in private, voluntary and public organisations. Additional value will be gained through developing an integrated and critical understanding of management and organisations, and the development of transferable and intellectual skills that are essential for successful modern management practices.

Learners will gain knowledge around the concepts that underpin business intelligence and data analytics as part of a digital transformation strategy. The development of a data management strategy will form the basis of the overall course structure. The creation of an evidence-based performance management dashboard which illustrates data manipulation and effective decision-making for a business will be core to the overall learning outcomes of the course.

The programme consists of modules which take place live and interactive online over 2 semesters, commencing in September 2022 - 6 Hours per week; 2 Evenings per week.
