We are delighted to announce that the part-time course the Diploma in Pensions Management and Policy is now delivered using a blended approach with traditional and online classes. Half of the programme is delivered in a classroom format with the second half delivered via blended learning. Blended learning means you attend the majority of your lectures online from the comfort of your home or office, with a small number of in-class lectures

The programme is aimed at those who want a career in a senior pensions consultancy/ advisory or pensions management role, providing you with the in-depth technical knowledge and skills specifically required to operate at a senior level in the pensions industry.

The programme is delivered over three semesters and will normally take 18 months to complete in full. Graduates of the diploma will also be awarded with the highly recognised professional status of “Associate” of the IIPM.

The programme focuses on the core areas of retirement provision, investments, insurance and the regulation of this industry. The programme places a particular emphasis on providing an in-depth knowledge of the retirement framework in Ireland, mechanisms and incentives for retirement provision, the micro and macro challenges facing Ireland and corresponding policies to meet such challenges. The programme also develops your specialist skills in identifying a client’s financial needs and in integrating your knowledge across the core areas to develop an appropriate strategy and provide specialist and competent financial advice.

The final semester of the diploma develops the additional knowledge and competencies required by senior pension scheme consultants/advisers, international benefit consultants, managers of pension schemes or administration functions or other such similar roles by focusing on the following three key areas:

  • Pension Scheme Law & Governance
  • International Practice
  • Pensions Management

Lectures given by highly experienced professionals will provide the principal approach to delivery of the programme, ensuring that it is very practical in nature by utilising class discussion, real world settings and case studies in the delivery.
