The International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) is a private business school offering Diploma and Degree programs.

The ICMS campus is situated on Sydney Harbour's North Head on St Patrick's Estate overlooking Manly Beach. The historic site is surrounded by 20 hectares of parklands and has extensive campus facilities.

The building which houses ICMS was originally built in 1885 as St Patrick's Seminary, Manly. The building is made from stone initially quarried from North Head with the finer stone coming from Pyrmont by boat. The College stands at four storeys high with a six level central bell tower and covers 60,000 square feet (5,600 m2).
