Trinity Business School - Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin has a robust reputation as a leading international university which extends over four centuries.  Trinity Business School was founded in 1925 and has had an innovative role in management education and research which both serve and influence industry.  Over the years, our School has played a pioneering role in bringing the MBA to Europe and has created one of Europe’s most sought after undergraduate business degree programmes.  We have a series of top ranked MSc programmes and our innovative new undergraduate business degree (Bachelor of Business Studies, BBS) will take in its first students in 2016/17.  

We are the business school of the world-renowned Trinity College Dublin, a university with an historic campus in the centre of Dublin; an international capital city and a hub for global business. Our MBA and range of masters are designed to develop well-rounded and highly capable business graduates in order to enhance their careers and the performance of organisations in which they are engaged. We are a triple accredited school, (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA) which places us in the top 0.6% of business schools globally.  Our global community of students learn cutting-edge real-world management techniques from both leading researchers and high-performance business executives. We also seek to produce graduates who are a force for good in the world – using their skills to put in more than they take out of any situation in which they are involved. 

Our students are in the centre of a University that is vibrant and diverse with over 200 clubs and societies and a global community of students from over 120 countries. Some of the most dynamic societies in Trinity College are business focused including TES (Trinity Entrepreneurial Society) and DUBES (Dublin University Business & Economic society).  In 2019, we opened our new state-of-the-art home, a near zero energy, six storey building that includes an innovation and entrepreneurial hub, a 600 seat auditorium, smart classrooms and the latest digital technology; and it remains in the heart of Trinity’s campus.

The Trinity MBA is an intensive project-based programme designed to create unique and global leaders. Whether you want to accelerate your current career path or transition to a new industry, you will gain the knowledge, skills and network to achieve your goals. Our global community of students learn cutting edge real-world management techniques from both leading researchers and high-performance business executives. The MBA is delivered over one year full time or two years part time. 

As well as a full suite of core business modules, there are three company projects. This is where The Trinity MBA breaks away from the traditional approach with ‘Live Action Learning’ – getting you inside real companies with real issues. Stepping out of your comfort zone, you will build on what you’ve learned in the classroom and apply it to real-world business problems. Working in groups, you will conduct problem analysis, create strategies, and deliver solutions direct to the senior stakeholders of each company. 

The three core projects are: 

  • (1) A multinational or large Irish player 
  • (2) A social enterprise
  • (3) A company that aspires to scale

A key aspect of our MBA is developing your leadership skills. The LEAD module is delivered through a series of workshops. They focus on cutting edge knowledge and frameworks to support the company project work throughout your studies and building key competences for your career development and progression post-graduation.
