DIT College of Business hosts Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Ireland

19 October 2016

It is the only internationally recognised professional body representing shipbrokers, ship managers and agents throughout the world.

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), founded in 1911, is the Professional Membership Body that sets the highest standards of professional service for the shipping industry through provision of an internationally recognised education programme.

In 2014, ICS celebrated 40 years of ICS Ireland and throughout that time has actively promoted education within the shipping industry.  Commencing this academic year, all ICS lectures and examinations will take place in the DIT College of Business in Aungier Street. 

Derek Dunne FICS, Chairman of ICS Ireland, said “ICS Ireland are delighted to be hosted by the DIT College of Business. This step is taken with the cooperation of the School of Management in DIT and creates an ideal study environment for students seeking to enhance a career in the shipping industry”.

Declan Allen Assistant Head, School of Management said; “We welcome ICS to DIT and look forward to exploring further opportunities which may be of mutual benefit to both parties”.
