International College of Management, Sydney

Australia
Overview

Overview

The International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) offers quality higher education alongside an exceptional student experience. Founded in 1996 as a specialist management institution, ICMS takes a career-oriented approach to formal education, supported by extensive industry partnerships and work experience programmes. All of this, located within Australia's vibrant capital, Sydney, which was recently voted the 9th most desirable student city in the world (QS, 2020).

ICMS is spread over three campuses, offering a wide range of degree courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Northern Beaches campus, fondly known as ‘the castle on the hill', is a beautiful 19th century stone building with superb facilities on site, including libraries, computer laboratories, tennis and basketball courts, as well as wireless internet throughout the campus.

There are nine beaches within walking distance, including the famous Manly beach, recently voted the best beach in Australia by TripAdvisor. Harbourside walks extend more than 50 kilometres into the bush to the north and south, yet central Sydney is only 17 minutes away by fast ferry from Manly wharf. It's the best of both worlds.

The City campus is located within Sydney's central business district, offering direct links to the college's network of industry professionals, and is situated close to the vibrant city culture of Sydney itself. Within Australia, ICMS consistently ranks in the top ten for employment, with around 90 per cent of its students securing jobs before graduation (ICMS graduate survey 2018) and with 100 per cent of students graduating with first-hand industry experience.

More than 2000 students attend ICMS, from over 50 countries worldwide, a rich and diverse social fabric which offers a truly global student experience, as well as ideal preparation for leadership and management roles within industry positions both domestically and internationally.
