Postgraduate Diploma Innovation through Design Thinking: Free or 90% subsidised places to those seeking to upskill or reskill under the Government’s new Human Capital Initiative (HCI)

There has never been a better time to invest in yourself and your future.  

The School of Education (in collaboration with the Cork University Business School) is offering a new 10-month postgraduate programme Innovation through Design Thinking (NFQ level 9).

We can now offer free or 90% subsidised places to those seeking to upskill or reskill under the Government’s new Human Capital Initiative (HCI), which is ideal for job seekers, recent graduates, or working professionals looking to develop their expertise in this emerging field. 

The programme is delivered online by leading design thinking experts with invited expert speakers from companies such as Pfizer, AIB, Fexco, Citrix, McKesson, etc. In addition to high quality content, the participants receive expert mentorship while they undertake projects in organisations or communities. At the end of the programme, participants have high quality design thinking skills that are in demand in all sectors. Design Thinking is emerging as the world’s most popular approach to establishing dynamic, human-centred, goal-oriented innovation in organisations.  

 Closing date:  30th August 2021
