Galway Business School, Ireland's newest university-level college, was officially opened on 24 June by Bertie Ahern, the Irish prime minister. In his address, Mr Ahern welcomed the setting up of a new third-level option in the West of Ireland and congratulated directors Celestine Rowland and David Niland, before unveiling a commemorative plaque. Celestine Rowland, who is also the managing director of the Galway Cultural Institute English language school, underlined the new college's commitment to vocational education. “Galway Business School attracts students from local and international communities who welcome the opportunity to pursue an employment-focused qualification in an environment where there are high levels of student support,” she said.

Galway Business School completed its second academic year in 2005. From its beach-side location, the college offers a three-year B.A. [Hons] in Business and two-year BTEC Higher National Diplomas in Business, Finance, Marketing, e-Business, Law and Hospitality. One-year options include a popular ICM Diploma in Marketing, Advertising & Public Relations. The college also offers shorter programmes, including a 13-week Professional Diploma in European Business, which can be combined with an English language course at Galway Cultural Institute.

Galway Business School has small class sizes, cutting-edge facilities and comprehensive student support structures. Non-executive directors, Dr Chris Coughlan, of Hewlett-Packard, and John Bourke, of Glenlo Abbey Hotel, ensure that the college's innovative programmes are informed by the rapidly changing realities of the international employment market.

As well as core business and IT skills, students gain key personal competencies in inter-personal communication and teamwork, literacy and job-search know-how. International students can take individual modules and gain credits under ECTS as part of a programme of study in their home country. Classes at Galway Business School attract mixed nationalities, including many Irish students.
