Students from Trinity Business School pursue a wide range of careers consistent with our philosophy of emphasizing 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. Recent graduates of our various MSc programmes pursue careers in consulting, finance, human resource management, marketing, import/export, public service, arts management, pharmaceutical and technology and information services. The majority of students going into fulltime employment take up jobs in multi-national firms and many are hired to work outside of Ireland.
The Masters in International Management is designed to give students a significant advantage in their chosen careers by developing the skills and sensitivities 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.
Careers Advisory Service:
The TCD Careers Advisory Service (CAS) offers a range of services and resources to assist students in preparing for, making, and implementing informed decisions about their future careers. We also work closely with the School of Business in providing students with the necessary skills and knowledge to independently manage their careers after College.
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.
CAS also delivers an extensive programme of seminars including ‘CV Preparation’, ‘Application Forms’ and ‘Interview Techniques (with provision for practice interviews on video)’. In addition, students are invited to meet with an experienced careers adviser to discuss career options and to avail of computer-based guidance tools and aptitude testing programme.
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.
CAS continues to provide careers support after graduation and this year, in association with Alumni Relations the very successful Trinity Alumni Career Network provided a five week expert lecture series to assist graduates seeking employment as well as those considering career change. Front Gate Online is the web based alumni community, which allows graduates to connect with other alumni and support current students.
