Athlone Institute of Technology’s Postgraduate Steps Programme operates on the understanding that people’s higher education needs are diverse. Therefore, the programme enables learners to take modules that address their professional development needs in a way that is compatible with their lifestyle.

Masters of Business Studies in Advanced Business Practice

The Masters of Business Studies in Advanced Business Practice enhances student’s core skills and fosters an entrepreneurial spirit. In addition, students must employ critical thinking skills for the modern business environment. The content of the programme’s modules are designed to reflect current professional development needs as articulated by Business Professionals.

How it works

Any learner who enrols on a single module will have three potential avenues available to them. These are as follows:

They can complete four designed modules worth 40 credits in addition to the modules, Research Methods and Dissertation. This leads to an award of a Master of Business Studies in Advanced Business Practice.

Alternatively, they can complete of six designed modules over time. As a result, they achieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Business in Advanced Business Practice.

Finally, they can complete one designed module leading to a minor award. This is associated with the Master of Business in Advanced Business Practice (level 9).

Modular learning

This programme is built module by module. The process involves ongoing consultation and collaboration with a variety of the Institute’s strategic partners in enterprise. As a result, it is possible to identify areas where there is a skills shortage. Based on its findings, the Institute will then develop a series of designed modules to meet the needs of the employee and the employer, while addressing emerging issues in the business environment.
