The ICMS Difference

WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING

Work integrated learning and an intensive industry based research project are experiences that will differentiate you from competitors in the job market. All Master’s students must complete 600 hours of work related to their studies and submit a rigorous research report. This may be based on either a real-world problem identified by an ICMS industry partner, or an in-depth research assignment that allows you to apply the skills or knowledge you have learnt during your postgraduate studies.

An industry experienced ICMS supervisor will oversee your placement and project, guiding you in your development. Our Master’s graduates leave ICMS with industry connections and experience so they are ready to move directly into management roles.

SMALL CLASS SIZES THAT SUIT YOUR STUDY REQUIREMENTS

Our flexible timetabling lets you choose subjects to suit your lifestyle. We offer regular weekly classes in the day or evening. You may also select some of our intensive classes to accelerate your learning over weekends. We have found that small interactive classes are the best way for students to learn and also strengthen the working relationship between students, teaching staff and guest speakers.

TEACHING FACULTY

You will learn directly from internationally experienced academics. Positions have included sales and marketing directors, financial analysts, destination marketers, CEOs, management consultants and corporate trainers. They are joined by our guest speakers who bring their own perspectives on the latest movements in industry, and share their business and management strategies.

GENUINE DIVERSITY OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

ICMS is a global community. Our students come from more than 40 countries as far ranging as Europe, South America and Asia. Our graduates go on to work as industry professionals worldwide. This diversity adds to the vibrancy and intellectual vitality of the student experience.

QUALITY AND CONTEMPORARY CURRICULUM

At ICMS you will experience our next generation education. We believe in a curriculum that blends a thorough understanding of the theoretical principles of management with innovations in hands-on, practical education. We work closely with industry to deliver a highly relevant postgraduate curriculum that includes the latest conceptual tools and innovative approaches to contemporary business. 

EMPHASIS ON INDIVIDUAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

Skills in analytical thinking, negotiation and persuasion are what makes a Master’s graduate a business leader. These are the soft skills of hard business that we embed into our Master’s subjects. Combined with your academic knowledge and practical industry training, these skills will differentiate you from others in a competitive job market.

FRIENDLY AND SUPPORTIVE CAMPUS EXPERIENCE

Postgraduate students can sometimes forget the importance of a well-rounded work-life balance. Our Student Experience Team organise social events to help you maintain that balance. We organise surfing trips, skiing trips and theatre visits so you can take advantage of everything Manly, Sydney and Australia have to offer. Our staff and students are connected in a way that just wouldn’t be possible in a large university, making for a unique campus experience.

AUSTRALIA’S MOST BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS LOCATION

It would be hard to find a college in a more spectacular location than our campus in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. Ocean panorama, parklands, and the cityscape are all part of the view from the commanding sandstone building that is home to ICMS. The campus is a five minute walk to famous Manly Beach, one of Sydney’s premier surfing beaches. A few minutes’ walk in the other direction will lead you to the foreshores of the harbour. Manly’s vibrant shopping precinct is well known for its cafés, restaurants and nightlife. ICMS is also close enough to Sydney CBD – 17 minutes by fast ferry – for visits to art galleries, museums, the best city shopping, the historic Rocks area, and Sydney’s famous Opera House.
