Message from a Leader in Business 

Here’s what ICMS Founder Darryl Courtney-O’Connor AM* has to say about what a Bachelor of Business can get you:

“To me, a Bachelor of Business is like Green Fees on a golf course; you have earned your right to play alongside all comers, including the pros, but how you go will depend on your swing and your attitude when the game doesn’t go your way.

From an academic point of view, the Bachelor of Business increases the likelihood of professional success in the workplace. It does not guarantee success, but the way an ICMS Bachelor of Business combines academic theory with coalface experience means that, in general, ICMS graduates progress faster than their colleagues.”
