ICOS Skillnet has partnered with University College Cork to bring the industry this diploma course which started in September 2015.

The Diploma in Corporate Direction (Food Business) is a Management Development Programme for co-operative board members and senior management. This innovative Programme is designed to address the special needs of co-operative board members and senior management in a rapidly changing agri business environment.

The key aim of the programme is to improve the capabilities of directors and senior management in positively influencing the strategic direction and corporate governance of food companies in Ireland. Participants will build on existing skills and develop new management capabilities in a highly interactive learning environment stimulated by academics and industry practitioners.

Co-operatives currently supporting this programme are:

Aurivo, Barryroe, Callan, Centenary Thurles, Dairygold, Lakelands, Lee Strand and Lisavaird.
