UL@Work Professional Diploma Programmes for 2022

‘The Great Resignation’, whereby up to 40% of employees in the US and UK are considering leaving their current job, is echoed here in Ireland according to a recent survey from UL’S Kemmy Business School, which reported almost half of the employees recently surveyed agreed with the statement that their ‘future career lies outside of this organisation’.

This phenomenon is having huge implications for talent attainment and  retention in all sectors and in all organisations regardless of size.

To meet this challenge UL@Work has co-designed with industry a range of digital Professional Diplomas in areas of:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
