Future-Proof Your Career With A Postgraduate Qualification From DIT
Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) is hosting a Postgraduate Open Evening on Thursday, 8 March from 5.30 to 7.30pm for ambitious individuals interested in pursuing a career-focused qualification. Attendees at the information evening in DIT Aungier Street will get the opportunity to learn more about the broad spectrum of programmes available in DIT including Business; Law; Engineering; Science; Tourism; Hospitality and Creative Arts. Expert DIT lecturers will be on hand to provide detailed course content so that students can find out how their programme of choice will develop their knowledge, and therefore enhance their career prospects.
The modern job market is continually evolving and whether you have just finished your undergraduate degree or have many years’ industry experience, acquiring new skills will be essential throughout your working life. As Frank Costello, Head of Admissions, DIT explains, “While postgraduate study may seem challenging, it really is an opportunity to future-proof your career by matching your learning with demand in the labour market. DIT works with industry to develop programmes that equip graduates with the skills that are in demand, which will give you an extra edge over other job applicants.”
“For example, our MSc programme in Applied Accounting developed in conjunction with CPA Ireland allows students to obtain both an MSc and professional qualification at the same time providing the fastest qualification route for would-be accountants in the country.”
For those considering a return to education, DIT provides various postgraduate qualifications in sectors where skills are often in short supply. For example, science graduates may wish to study a DIT qualification in Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance & Biotechnology, while qualified engineers may want to diversify by studying an Energy Management programme developed in response to industry need for a master's engineering programme that integrates energy, environmental issues and management.
The Open Evening will also showcase new DIT postgraduate offerings such as the pioneering new MA in Law (Professional) which is an accredited law degree for admission to King Inns, and also offers all eight subjects assessed in the entrance examination to the Law Society of Ireland- (FE-1s). The Arthur Ryan Retail Centre is also introducing a new programme in 2018; the MSc Fashion Buying & Management is the first of its kind to be offered in Ireland and was designed for business-minded graduates seeking to break into the exciting and fast-paced fashion buying industry.
Gastronomy and Food Studies is the first Master’s programme in Ireland to offer graduates a solid underpinning in the three pillars of Gastronomy & Food Studies: History, Society, and Practice and was created to satisfy the growing interest nationally and internationally in Food Studies. Successful graduates will be equipped to contribute to the arenas of Food Policy (government agencies, NGOs, advocacy, non-profit and philanthropic organisations), Media; Food Writing; Communications, and Food and Beverage Consultancy.
