WIT School of Business to launch new postgraduate programmes in Finance and Lean management techniques.
The School of Business will launch two new programmes, the MSc in Global Financial Information Systems (GFIS) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Business in Lean Practice, this September, both of which have recently been approved for Springboard funding by the government. To apply for the course as part of the Springboard initiative, see www.wit.ie/springboard.
The MSc in Global Financial Information Systems (GFIS) is underpinned by WIT’s longstanding reputation for providing high quality, innovative, business and finance programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The MSc in GFIS will aim to provide graduates with knowledge and practical skills in financial modelling, analysis, and interpretation, and in the development, application, and management of ICT for the Financial Services Industry.
In addition to the new programme in financial information systems, WIT Department of Graduate Business will also offer a new innovative course in lean management techniques. Lean Manufacturing and Services is an area that is crucially important to a range of companies based in the South East and this new Postgraduate Diploma in Business in Lean Practice will provide participants with direct industry engagement through seminars, live projects, company visits and peer interaction. Developed with input from Lake Region Medical (which recently became the first company in Ireland and first medical device company in Europe to receive Shingo Accreditation) and other stakeholders, the programme provides a flexible opportunity for those who are trying to balance work, life and learning.
As well as these new postgraduate offerings, the School of Business is also recruiting for the next intake for its Executive DBA and MBA [part-time] programmes. The WIT EMBA is fully affiliated with the MBA Association of Ireland and now incorporates an innovative series of professional development workshops as well as an established US international study programme as part of its overall course structure and delivery.
