Securing work placement directly and developing a career/life plan were just some of the outcomes Fidelma achieved from her Higher Diploma in Business Systems Analysis
I undertook the Higher Diploma in Business Systems Analysis because I wanted to upskill and move from a traditional marketing role to a project management role. It is a fantastic course - quite focused on the IT/ software development area, which suited me perfectly.
The first year we had in-person classes and the comradery was excellent - knowing my classmates made the transition to online learning a lot easier and more personable.
The course content covers all areas of understanding an IT system development project from multiple perspectives. I am delighted that I took the initiative to undertake the course. I have secured a new work placement directly as a result of my learnings.
The career development module was a very rewarding element of the programme as it helped me to visualise my skills and knowledge and values. We started developing a career/life plan and learned tools that I now find valuable for every element of my life, not just my career.
