In a highly competitive market, having the right postgraduate degree can propel graduates onto the careers ladder, while at later career stages, graduate qualifications can advance promotions or give a new direction. Take a look at some of UCD new graduate courses!
Masters in Development Practice
Working in international development requires management expertise and an understanding of the economic, political, healthcare and natural environment. In the Masters in Development Practice, academics and practioners come together to train the next generation of international developers and give practical experience in Rwanda or Liberia. Funded by the MacArthur Foundation (USA), the programme is delivered jointly by UCD and TCD in collaboration with the National University of Rwanda, Realizing Rights, Trócaire, Kimmage Development Studies Centre and Earthmind.

The course culminates with a business project undertaken within the biotechnology industry. Developed in conjunction with employers, the course prepares graduates for opportunities in major companies such as Genzyme, Centocor, Merck, Wyeth and Pfizer.
For doctors, nurses and health professionals on the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Leadership, Quality and Patient Safety along with Strategic Management & Planning form key parts of the course.
