Subjects
Principles of Management

This course provides a solid grounding in the key principles of modern management theory. It explains the origins of contemporary management science and details the most important elements of management, including leadership, HRM and change management.

Human Resource Management

This course covers several specific topics in the HRM field, including manpower planning, performance management, managing change, health and safety issues, employment legislation and strategic management.

Financial Management

This course provides students with a clear understanding of standard accounting techniques and the proper management of an organisation’s finances. Designed for those with no background in accounting, it addresses, among other things, double-entry book-keeping, how profits are measured and the regulations governing financial statements and disclosure.

Strategic Management

Strategic management is the study of how organisations meet their objectives and effectively respond to change. This course focuses on strategic management in the Irish public sector, but it covers concepts common to both the public and private sector. Among the topics addressed are the history of strategic management in the Irish public sector, why strategic management is seen as critical and the tools of strategic management.
