What Our Alumni Say
My experience with the Professional Diploma in Project Management was extremely good - since completing the course I now have interviews coming out of my ears! I picked up a lot of useful skills throughout the course and everything was very well-taught by the lecturers.
Studying for a Professional Diploma has helped to reinvigorate me as I seek a new leadership role. It afforded me the opportunity to consider insights shared by the lecturer and classmates and to review some of the academic literature which tends to get ignored in the BUSY day to day.
Managing Director, Gaming & Leisure Association of Ireland
The experience I had has been nothing but positive. When the course went from in classes, in UCD, to online lectures, this worked well with my busy schedule. I would definitely recommend UCD Professional Academy.

I would definitely 100% recommend UCD Professional Academy to anyone. Everything was so organised and it was such an enjoyable experience. The only regret I have is not learning about the UCD Professional Academy sooner and completing the course sooner.

The Professional Diploma in Finance for Non-Financial Managers helped me build up basic financial concepts and knowledge. Reading financial statements has always been challenging for me. I've learned how to measure a company's performance from a financial perspective, as well as how to make an investment decision.
I would definitely recommend this course to professionals from the corporate world. The Professional Academy courses are flexible and suit those who have a busy routine. Above all, it’s a perfect spot to expand your professional network and get a recognised diploma around trending and useful topics.
