Twice the Credential, Twice the Potential


At IBaT College Dublin, the MBA program has been designed in collaboration with industry partners to ensure that it is as relevant and practical as possible. In either a full-time or part-time format, candidates will build refined skills in management & leadership, marketing, HR, international business, business ethics and more.

ACCA Status

The ACCA qualification is an internationally-recognized standard for accounting practitioners. In combination with the business sense of an MBA, ACCA-certified graduates will effectively have an edge over their competition.

All ACCA training is delivered entirely online via the award-winning online learning platform by InterActive and in partnership with Global University System (GUS).
