Free Ulster University management courses to help those impacted by Covid-19

  • Ulster University Business School (UUBS) is continuing free upskilling for those economically impacted by Covid-19, with 75 fully funded places in leadership and management courses.

    Addressing skills shortages identified by local employers, the skills development programme is fully funded by the Department for the Economy, and will provide individuals with opportunities to gain commercially relevant skills and qualifications to enhance their future career prospects and secure new jobs.

    Over the last year, the increasing use of digital technology, among many other forces, has spurred rapid shifts in organisational structures and skills requirements - posing significant challenges and opportunities for businesses.

    In response, UUBS’s new part-time postgraduate leadership and management courses have been designed to help existing and aspiring leaders cultivate new skills and capabilities relevant to the post-pandemic workplace.
