The new business school at Dublin City University (DCU), the Tony Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship, has been named after Tony Ryan, founder of the low-cost airline Ryanair. His three sons, Cathal, Declan and Shane have donated 7 million to the school and father Tony has committed 10 million in bursaries for students. Founded 25 years ago, the DCU is considered one of the countrys most innovative universities and prides itself on being unconventional in its approach. It specialises in computing, communications, languages, engineering, science and electronics and it insists on a practical, work-linked and inter-disciplinary approach to academic learning. The university is 15 minutes drive from Dublin airport to the north of the city, and only 10 minutes to the city centre by public transport.
