About this Course

Internationalisation should not to be considered as a separate part of the company or as a strategy to be enacted only in times of reduced local demand, but fully integrated into the business as a core part of the company's long term strategy. While many organisations acknowledge the desirability of going global many remain focused on the domestic market. The main reported reasons are a lack of financial resources but most of all lack of skills or skilled human capital to tackle internationalisation.

This course addresses the lack of skilled human capital that many expert reports have identified as vital to Ireland's future development. The course provides life and business skills that will position the Learner to gain employment or enhance their promotional prospects in indigenous or export-oriented organisations.

- Develop the global business know-how, the critical and analytical thinking, the creativity and innovation, the cultural awareness capability and the cross sectorial-skills and talent to support exporting and indigenous companies.
- Acquire self-awareness and transferable, intellectual and employability skills to gain employment at the appropriate level in an organisation.
- Enhance their confidence by the acquisition of interpersonal, communication, technology, business and social skills and competencies required for them to be industry leaders in the future.
