University College Dublin could face a revenue hit as its business school is reviewing whether to cut the dividend it pays to the university.

The business school's chairman Niall Fitzgerald told the Irish Times that the school is examining how best to use its resources to increase its international profile, and that a dividend cut is being considered.

He said the school is profitable on its own terms, but that most of the surplus goes to UCD.

The school's strategy needs to be refined over the next five to ten years, Mr Fitzgerald added.
