Kevin Moran
Work hard, it is important to have a good work ethic and to always be open to facing new challenges. An open mind is very important as the financial services industry is one that has undergone and will continue to undergo many changes. An appetite for learning is also very important as the need to broaden ones knowledge is paramount.

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Summary... header image

Marketing covers everything from company culture and philosophy through to market research, new business/product development, advertising and promotion, PR (public or press relations), and all of the sales functions. Its the process by which a company decides what it will sell, to whom, when and how, and then does it.

This two-year Higher Certificate Programme introduces students to the factors at work in managing these outwardly straightforward but inwardly complex businesses. This programme provides students with an overview of the main functional areas in businesses and an understanding of how each element contributes to overall business performance. It provides an understanding of the principles and practices of retail management, marketing and related disciplines within an overall business management context, and will ensure that students are familiar with the workings of the ‘new digital economy’.

Students who have reached the appropriate level in final examinations and meet certain subject prerequisites may have the opportunity to access honours degree programmes at the Year 2/Year 3 level in DIT and elsewhere in Higher Education.
