Graduate Certificate in Corporate Treasury

The Graduate Certificate in Corporate Treasury has been designed in response to a need for an academically rigorous, professionally oriented treasury programme. The programme is offered by DCU in conjunction with the Irish Association of Corporate Treasurers, the representative body for the corporate treasury profession in Ireland.

The Graduate Certificate in Corporate Treasury offers the opportunity for those working in treasury to gain the specialist knowledge required to function in or serve the needs of the modern corporation. It also fulfills the continuing educational needs of more experienced corporate treasurers, given the increasing complexity of the financial markets within which they operate.

Lecturers on the programme are drawn from the academic staff of DCU Business School and from practitioners in the treasury sector.
