For more than 25 years, the Management Development Unit at University of Limerick has helped experienced professionals gain academic credentials to support, validate and empower their management careers. We understand the challenge of returning to education after achieving in the workplace—that’s why our programmes are focused on practical skills, applicable knowledge and best-practice techniques that will help you both tomorrow and years from now. We offer part-time courses, blended learning methods, flexible delivery and dedicated support staff because we know continuing education is just one of several important aspects of your life.
Bringing more than a decade of specialist experience in professional education to the role of Programmes Director, Yvonne Delaney leads the management development team in providing innovative, applicable higher education programmes for ambitious management professionals. Supported by experienced course director, Mike O'Brien, dedicated administrator, Breda Ahern and hand-selected tutors from industry, the MDU offers students the advanced learning and hands-on support required to succeed in management today.
Working with leading innovators from across Europe on the Archimedes project, we helped identify key insights into management in SMEs and brought our findings back to the MDU programmes at UL. For 2017 we’re preparing to participate in the EU Erasmus+ project, in collaboration with the UL school of Science & Engineering and Kemmy Business School.
