This modern, purpose-built campus houses five floors of teaching and learning facilities including classrooms, an auditorium, IT labs, a library, an MBA debating chamber as well as student recreation and study areas.

Education is critical to Ireland’s regeneration and future success. It demands a new approach – an approach that can innovate and evolve at the same pace as business and technology; a model that espouses the highest quality of education and focuses on equipping students with the knowledge and skills they need to progress in their chosen career or upskill and retrain where necessary to ensure they can stay ahead in their field.

IBAT College Dublin pioneers this new model of education. It emerges from and represents the entrepreneurial, ambitious and pragmatic new culture that will continue to drive Ireland’s international success by creating a practical and innovative knowledge economy that benefits all.

At IBAT College Dublin, we pride ourselves in how we guide, support and mentor our students throughout their college experience and into their working lives.
