The programme pillars are management knowledge and skills, knowledge and skills specific to the not-for profit sector and skills of research and analysis. The core management knowledge, which extends across the business domain, including Finance, Management and Strategy and Regulation, allows students develop and enhance their business competencies. Specifically, graduates will be provided with the skillset to resolve real-life business challenges and personally develop into strong and confident business leaders and mentors. The Nonprofit pillar ensures that graduates of the programme are provided with a comprehensive understanding of the key tenets and stakeholders of the sector. The final pillar is that of research. The research element of the programme directs students to contemporary challenges and problems in the sector in Ireland or overseas. Overall this programme seeks to ensure graduates develop their personal competencies as well as the critical thinking, analytical and business skills necessary for modern not for profit enterprises. At the core of the programme is the objective to ensure that graduates become reflective, thoughtful leaders who collaborate, create and share knowledge in order to deal with the complexities of the dynamic third sector. The managerial and leadership formation in the programme is collaboratively and team based, community focused insofar as the whole programme is designed for the community and voluntary sector, is shaped by a strong ethical based values model and will challenge learners to “lift their game”, becoming more innovative and analytical in their approaches to problems and conscious of their obligations to provide servant leadership to their stakeholders.
