About this Course

The current business environment can be characterised as volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA). Furthermore, recent disruptive events such as Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for Irish businesses to build resilience capabilities to deal with various uncertainties in their operations. Resilience gives entities such as organisations, societies, governments and supply chains the potential to absorb shocks and 'bounce back' after a disruption and maintain their business continuity and competitiveness. However, what constituents resilience with an organisation and between business partners is not apparent due to the multi-dimensional aspect of the resilience concept. This PG Diploma aims to meet the growing need for experts trained to analyse and provide solutions to complex business resilience issues. This programme seeks to introduce the underlying business resilience theories, practices, and applications so that Irish businesses can promote and build resilience capabilities to mitigate foreseen and unforeseen disruptive events.
This programme is delivered in two semesters in the academic year, mostly focused on self-directed learning on various business resilience elements and related topics. The underlying philosophy is to provide a diverse and challenging range of learning experiences in which students explore an appropriate body of knowledge drawing on their working experience. The programme is divided into two broad areas: (1) organisational resilience and related concepts, organisational theories, leadership and strategy (2) Multi-disciplinary approach to resilience application, analysis and measurement

The programme targets learners who have achieved Level 8 awards on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) and are eligible for a Level 9 PG Diploma award. Learners with Level 6 or 7 awards will be considered if their prior experience is regarded as an adequate background to prepare them for the programme.
