DIT-ICT Ireland Management Development Programme Launched

The Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Micheál Martin has launched the DIT-ICT Ireland Management Development Programme at a reception in the Westin Hotel in Dublin. The School of Management programme is aimed at technologists working in the ICT industry and is designed to complement their workplace experience. It targets important human resources gaps in the Irish ICT sector by providing opportunities for technical and engineering graduates to develop a broad set of business, management and interpersonal tools. Over a two year part-time programme the participants will complete the M.Sc. in Technology and Innovation Management. Participant companies in the first cohort include IBM, Hewlett Packard, Erickson and Vodafone. A second cohort is currently being recruited to commence this September. The initiative is supported by the Accel programme which is an initiative of the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment and is managed by Skillnets Services Ltd on its behalf.

ICT Ireland was launched in May 2001 and brings together under one banner the Audiovisual Federation, the Consumer Electronic Distributors Association, the Irish Cellular Industry Association, the Irish Software Association, the Telecommunications and Internet Federation and the White Goods Association.
