ICD Business School: A Vibrant Community of Learning and Scholarship

ICD Provides a High-Quality Education

ICD (International College Dublin) Business School was established in 2001 for the purpose of providing high-quality, third-level qualifications in Business and Accounting to both EU and non-EU students. The college currently offers three programmes leading to leading to major awards at levels 8 and 9 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) in its areas of specialism, namely the BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance, BA (Hons) in Business Studies, and MA in Accounting and Finance. The college also offers ACCA tuition as part of its BA Hons in Business Studies and BA Hons in Accounting with graduates receiving up to 9 exemptions (F1 to F9).

ICD is a Boutique College: Every Individual Learner is Treated Equally

ICD is a ‘boutique college’, offering specifically tailored courses of education to small groups of dedicated students, and guaranteeing lecturer to learner ratios that create an environment in which students are actively encouraged to participant, interact and engage. Because of its deliberate policy of small learner group sizes – typically no more than 40 in a traditional lecture setting, or 20 in a tutorial or demonstration – ICD lecturers are free to provide learners with the individual attention they require to achieve their academic goals. ‘Quality’, ‘Consistency’, and ‘Caring’ are watchwords that embody ICD’s organisational ethos, which proceeds from the belief that a truly quality academic experience can only be delivered by world class academics, teaching to small class sizes, backed up by a caring, personal and understanding administration system.

ICD Values Diversity

ICD is committed to creating a culture in which no learner or staff member is discriminated against on the basis of age, race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious belief, national or ethnic origin, or disability. ICD has also adopted a policy of transparent and non-discriminatory pricing, with academic fees set at the same level for all students irrespective of nationality or EU citizenship. The only exception to this arises if a student applies to ICD from abroad and requires visa assistance, which can lead to once-off fees. The college offers students a uniquely diverse learning environment, and currently serves learners from over forty five countries, including Ireland, Belarus, China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Poland, South Korea, Iran, Mongolia, Nepal, the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Peru, Croatia, Cameroon Nigeria, Venezuela, Malawi, Mauritius, Vietnam, and South Africa.

We are a proud member of ICOS (the Irish Council for International Students) and regularly hold consultations with ICOS in order to promote diversity and inclusion for International Students at ICD and in Irish Education generally.
