The Carlow Institute of Technology is bringing a course, entitled 'Higher Diploma in Business in Aquabusiness' to their college for the academic year 2017-2018. The course has been created in collaboration with Board Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland's Seafood Development Agency. The course will greatly help participants improve their presentation and supervisory skills. The personal development of each applicant will be significantly advanced through participation in modules such as 'Aquabusiness Economics', 'Strategic and Innovation Management', and 'Marketing Management in Aquabusiness'. Participants will also have to participate in work placement as part of the course.
Although the course will apply to, and benefit, people across a wide range of sectors, it will prove most valuable to those seeking careers in Aquabusiness, Aquaeconomics, financial and/or regulatory roles in Research & Development or in a seafood processing company. Applicants are expected to have an NFQ Level 7 or 8 Award, or equivalent, in a related discipline. Other applicants will be considered on an individual basis.
