UCD Professional Academy courses provide you with the skills you need to continue your professional development alongside like minded professionals. They’ve been created by experts who all have real-world experience in their chosen subject.

Office administration can see you managing responsibilities as diverse as IT infrastructure or supplier procurement or data protection. If you are someone who enjoys a varied workday, making things happen, and getting things done, administration is an ideal career choice.

This Professional Diploma will teach you the skills to set up systems and processes for organising an office, understand legislation and best practice in managing employees, identify methods to improve efficiency and use of resources, plus complete all the common everyday tasks of administration.

In this profession, you will both support and lead. You will be a team player and collaborate with colleagues at every level and in every area of the business. Externally, you will represent your organisation as you interact with stakeholders, suppliers, and clients. This course will develop your interpersonal and communications skills as well as the more practical knowledge required in administration.
