HSI Limerick Business School was first recognised by the Minister of Education and became a designated institute of the Higher Education and Awards Council (HETAC) in 1994. In 1997, the school was approved for tax relief purposes by the Department of Education and Science.
As it first moved to the higher education sphere, the School initially
offered a number of programmes leading to awards at National Certificate
level. The relationship with HETAC has expanded over subsequent years
and programmes offered now include ordinary degree and honours degree
programmes - in 2005, the first graduates of the HETAC Bachelor of
Business (Honours) were conferred.
In 2008, HETAC approved HSI as an
outreach centre of the Irish Academy of Public Relations and its Level 8
Higher Diploma in Arts in Public Relations commenced at the college in
Autumn 2008. As a further make of quality education provision, HSI
Limerick Business School agreed its quality assurance procedures with
the Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC)
in 2005. This has allowed the School to offer recognised awards, with
clear progression paths, to both Irish and international learners at
Level 4 and Level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications.
In 2007, HSI Limerick Business School
attained Gold approval from ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified
Accountants), one of the world's largest and fastest-growing
professional international accountancy bodies, in recognition of its
continuous commitment to the delivery of high-quality eduational support
to ACCA students.
