At the end of 2023, we embarked on an exciting phase of growth – our university rebranding! Previously named ‘InterCollege Business School (ICBS)’, we have shifted to ‘IC University of Applied Sciences – Amsterdam.’ This is a significant development in our institution’s journey and signifies our commitment to growth and development within the education world. The rebranding is not only about a name change but reflects our commitment to embracing a future-oriented vision.
