About the School


Prof Andrew BurkeWelcome to the School of Business at Trinity College, Dublin. Trinity College is Ireland’s premier university, with a tradition of excellence in research and teaching spanning over four centuries.  Our graduates benefit from earning a degree from a university that is both well-known and highly regarded right across the World.  Trinity’s Business School was formed in 1925.  It played a pioneering role in bringing the MBA to Europe and has created one of Europe’s most sought after undergraduate business degree programmes. 

The School also has a series of top ranked MSc programmes and another innovative new undergraduate business degree (Bachelor of Business Studies, BBS) will take in its first students in 2016/17.  It also has a vibrant PhD programme with successful graduates working across the globe and generating impact through their research.  Our approach to education is unique, high quality and something we are constantly improving.  It encompasses an exciting ecosystem which includes:


Courses primarily designed to create great careers for our graduates and excellent performance for the businesses who hire them.  Our graduates learn cutting-edge real world management from both leading researchers and high performance business executives & entrepreneurs.


A set of values.  We take a deep and responsible view of the term ‘business performance’ which creates an awareness beyond profit to include impact on the wider economy and society.  We expect our graduates to ‘put in more than they take out’ in terms of their impact on the economy and society throughout their career.


The personal development of our students.  We provide an opportunity for our students explore and to develop their business and personal potential on our degree programmes as well to prepare them for a healthy career existence in today’s dynamic but often stressful work environment.


A world class real business educational environment which embraces a highly entrepreneurial University (with its hub due to be located in the core of the new business school building) with excellent innovation and new ventures, top-tier student activities and societies in the field of business.  The University is located right in the centre of the vibrant and friendly Dublin City.  The School and University are adjacent the Irish Financial Services Centre (IFSC), Dublin City centre retail and professional services communities, Ireland’s cultural industries cluster and the Grand Canal Dock technology and consultancy hub.  Quite simply, we have cutting edge global corporations and high performance new ventures on our doorstep.
