Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Postgraduate Courses

Very often people undertake post-graduate courses to specialise in an area or to change their career. These courses are at Levels 9 and 10 on the NFQ framework.

You can search for these through Postgradireland.com

Also, it is worth investigating individual college/university websites for detailed descriptions of the postgraduate course, application procedures and the closing dates for application.

We also recommend you visit Graduate Careers Fairs, especially those aimed specifically at postgraduate study.
