Students from Trinity Business School pursue a wide range of careers consistent with our philosophy of emphasising general management skills in our suite of degrees. The School has a well-deserved reputation for developing the ‘whole’ manager and many of our students discover unanticipated interests and skills over the course of their time with us.
The Masters in International Management is designed to give students a significant advantage in their chosen careers by developing the skills and competencies necessary to operate in a global marketplace. Rapid economic and technological change, cultural diversity, institutional integration and global sourcing and distribution strategies demand that students are able to identify opportunities and threats beyond the borders of their firm, city, country and continent; to devise strategies and take decisions informed by varied sources of information and relevant analytics; to adapt to unfamiliar market preferences and contexts; and to accept and manage the risks that accompany all of the above. In Ireland, we know that ‘International is Inevitable’ – spend a year with us in Trinity College and learn how far it will take you.
Students of the MSc International Management come from all over the world work all over the globe pursuing careers in consulting, finance, international marketing, entrepreneurship, non-profit and third sector management, pharmaceutical and technology and information services. They work in areas from global supply chain to starting their own business in China. The majority of students go into full-time employment, securing employment in multi-national firms.
Career Development Officer
The Trinity Business School has a dedicated Career Development Officer for its postgraduate students, Ruth O’Leary. Ruth’s role is to provide students with the tools, support and skills necessary to independently explore career options and make informed career decisions. This is achieved with class presentations as well as one to one meetings with individual students. Ruth continues to provide careers support after graduation.
Careers Advisory Service
The TCD Careers Advisory Service (CAS) is also available to post-graduate students. Included in the many services provided by CAS are an extensive Careers Information Centre and an award-winning website. Both contain information on all aspects of the career-planning process, employment search, as well as details of ongoing career and graduate recruitment events. CAS also offers TCD students exclusive access to Vault’s Career Insider and the ‘Going Global’ resource with country specific information, which is imperative for the cohort of international students on the MSc in International Management.
Civic Engagement Office
The dedicated Civic Engagement Office can also help students to identify and pursue a volunteering opportunity which suits their needs, interests and availability and which will allow them to develop additional skills and confidence while studying at Trinity College.
Front Gate Online
Also, Front Gate Online is the web based alumni community, which allows graduates to connect with other alumni and support current students. This community is very useful for students and graduates seeking or offering employment.
