Leadership Development Programme

The Leadership Development Programme (LDP) empowers participants to focus on the skills necessary to communicate effectively, understand themselves, and lead others.

Individual: through a series of workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, and self-reflection assignments, you’ll gain insight into how you interact, approach situations, and communicate with others.

Team: each semester you will be placed in diverse teams that focus on understanding the emotional and social intelligence of others and improving relationship management skills.

Organisation: once you’ve discovered how you affect yourself and others, we look beyond to how your new managerial toolkit makes you a top-notch leader.

This element of the Smurfit MBA runs in conjunction with academic and career services to provide you with a developed sense of self, team, and leadership as you fulfil your career potential.
