The Business Faculty at Independent College Dublin

The Business Faculty at Independent College Dublin is dedicated to the provision of the highest quality education and training to enable students to meet the challenges of the rapidly-changing and ever more globalised world of business. Students are offered an expanding range of accredited Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Continuing Professional Development Programmes which are designed to meet the current and future academic and career needs of the contemporary business professional.

These programmes are designed to provide flexible access to students and to professional business people who wish to establish a firm foundation in business studies areas, or who wish to enhance their career development opportunities and specific business skills through accessing the most up-to-date theory and practice in their chosen areas of business.

Our business courses are largely offered at our well-appointed premises in the centre of Dublin, in a vibrant, friendly, progressive and cosmopolitan environment. In addition to high academic standards and relevance, we place great emphasis on student wellbeing, and ensuring at a personal level that all who study with us obtain maximum value from the learning experience.

A number of our programmes are benchmarked against professional accreditation and exemption requirements and our Masters framework of qualifications offers the opportunity to gain staged postgraduate qualifications at a pace suitable for each individual learner.

While our learning and teaching emphasises the importance of understanding the theory of Business Studies as a discipline, our business courses underpin this with substantial use of action-centred experiential learning, “real-life” case studies, team learning projects, and individual “live” research projects tailored to individual career development.

The programmes within the Business Faculty are supplemented by a range of additional tailored programmes which are designed to accommodate the needs of particular business and commercial sectors SMEs, and others in the private or the public sector. We are happy to discuss particular areas of special-purpose provision directly with commissioning clients.
