Why Cork University Business School?

Effective from January 2015, CUBS was given its current recognition as the stand-alone Cork University Business School. However, the school has a history that stretches back over 150 years, to the formation of University College Cork (UCC) as Queen’s College Cork, part of the Queen’s University Ireland, in 1845.

Today, CUBS is a key part of UCC’s academic offering with its activities at a level one would expect of a university with a history and tradition of international-class teaching and research. CUBS is one of the two largest business schools in Ireland with:

  • The largest number of fulltime undergraduate students;
  • The second largest number of full-time graduate students;
  • The largest amount of research income.
