Professor Tom Thomas, ICM’s Chief Executive, attended the graduation ceremony for Dublin Business School (DBS) on Thursday 27 November.

Over 200 DBS students received their ICM diplomas across many subjects, including marketing, business studies, journalism and legal studies, at the ceremony which took place at the RDS Concert Hall in Dublin.

Professor Thomas said: “It was a real pleasure to present the awards at the DBS graduation ceremony and meet so many ICM graduates. Many congratulations to those that have graduated. I wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavours.

“The ICM student numbers seem to be growing at DBS and the range of courses that they provide is very impressive. Our role of providing vocationally-related programmes whilst expanding our links with many universities in relation to progression routes is clearly a popular approach. I look forward to working with the School and other ICM centres across Ireland in the future.”

Dublin Business School (incorporating Portobello College) was established in 1975 and is now the largest independent college in Ireland with over 9,000 students.
