Welcome to the Professional School at DBS 

DBS started out preparing students for Professional Accountancy exams (1975).  This has always been part of our core business. Today’s Professional School still prepares students for these external professional exams.  However, we have also expanded to offer a wide range of short Diploma programmes, awarded by both DBS and ICM (Institute of Commercial Management).  ICM is an internationally recognised examining and awarding body for business and management students. Almost all lecturers have hands on business experience in their chosen disciplines.  This brings a unique real world flavour to class room delivery, which positions students well, not just for examination success, but also for career progression.

Our Professional Accountancy students have achieved over 960 prizes/placings in professional exams.  This figure cannot be rivalled in the Irish market. The Professional School work very closely with ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) to ensure our course delivery always reflects best practice to achieve exam success.  In recognition of this we are a Platinum Tuition Provider with ACCA.  This provides independent assurance at the highest possible level of the quality of programmes on offer.

As part of the Kaplan group, the Professional School has access and contributes to a pool of expertise within Kaplan Financial.  Overall this partnership enhances the quality of the learning experience to both lecturer and student.

The main for aim for all Professional School students is to achieve exam success and prepare them for a successful career in the business world.
