On Wednesday 23rd May UL@Work launched a one-of-a-kind master’s programme, designed for working professionals who want to take their career to the next level and gain the skills, knowledge and qualifications needed to excel in their chosen field.

The Master of Professional Practice is a part-time, flexible, and customisable programme that combines three Professional Diplomas stacked over five years across all faculties at University of Limerick. Professionals can stack programmes from other educational institutions (not just UL) across disciplines of interest and value, from AI, Data Analytics and Cybersecurity to Strategic Leadership and Human Resource Management to Communications and Law and Technology. This allows for a highly tailored learning experience specific to personal goals and interests.
