Is there a dress code?

Please wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Some of our participants like to dress casually, others prefer to be more formal – it’s entirely up to you.

What is the daily schedule of an IMI programme?

The compact nature of the programme means that we need to make use of all the time available to maximise your learning opportunity. All programmes start at 9:00 unless otherwise communicated to course participants.

Therefore we ask that you arrive in plenty of time each day for a prompt start. If you arrive early you can avail of the IMI restaurant which is open from 08:00 with a complementary supply of tea, coffee and pastries.

The normal finish time is 17:00 each day.

Is Wifi available on campus?

Yes. IMI offers complimentary wireless internet access to our participants. However, it is worth mentioning that you will maximise the benefit of your participation if you are able to be away from your place of work for the duration of the programme.

If possible, advise colleagues to contact you only if something is urgent. Our experience suggests participants gain and retain more from their studies if they have the chance to discuss and share issues with other participants, rather than phoning the office at every break.

Are courses residential?

No, although we do have accommodation on-campus at the IMI Residence. The Residence is designed to provide the highest level of comfort for the business traveller. Complimentary WIFI, parking and use of the onsite gym are included in the room rate. For details of room rates, please click here, e-mail reservations@imires.ie or ring 01-207 8502.
