The Irish Times - Business - - BUSINESS NEWS - PE­TER HAMIL­TON

A pri­vate Ger­man univer­sity of ap­plied sciences will open two Ir­ish cam­puses to fa­cil­i­tate cour­ses start­ing this au­tumn.

IUBH is open­ing in Dublin and Kil­lar­ney to of­fer both bach­e­lor and mas­ter’s de­grees across a range of cour­ses be­gin­ning in Oc­to­ber this year.

In Dublin, the com­pany will of­fer mas­ters pro­grammes in fi­nance, ac­count­ing, hos­pi­tal­ity, IT man­age­ment, man­age­ment and a mas­ter of busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion (MBA) in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness. In Kil­lar­ney, IUBH will of­fer a bach­e­lor de­gree in ho­tel and restau­rant man­age­ment.

IUBH has cam­puses across 12 Ger­man cities as well as a site in Vienna, Aus­tria.

“Ire­land is a modern and dy­namic coun­try with a vi­brant young pop­u­la­tion and a thriv­ing econ­omy. Com­ple­mented by the high qual­ity of teach­ing at IUBH, Ire­land is the perfect lo­ca­tion for stu­dents with an in­ter­na­tional ca­reer fo­cus to take the next step for­ward,” said Rob­bie Whe­lan, Dublin cam­pus di­rec­tor.

Prof Pe­ter Thuy, rec­tor of IUBH, wel­comed the con­tin­ued in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of the univer­sity.

“Right from the be­gin­ning we have fo­cused on in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion, so it is a log­i­cal next step to ex­pand our pro­grammes to lo­ca­tions abroad and give our stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to study in an English-speak­ing en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.

Founded in 1998 in Bad Hon­nef, IUBH cur­rently has some 9,000 stu­dents.
