Our Mission, Our Values, Our Vision
We are the business school of a world-renowned university located at the core of Dublin, an international capital city and hub for global business. In this context, we are dedicated to education and research relevant for students and organisations which instil a mind-set focused on improving business and society based upon creative and critical thinking, ethical awareness and values, cutting-edge knowledge and professional behaviour.
Our values commit us to a liberal environment where independence of thought is protected and where all are encouraged to become fulfilled by realising their potential to enhance business and society in a manner which involves ‘putting in more than you take out’.
To become a business school of greater consequence by growing to a full suite international Business School and deepening our DNA through delivering five key objectives;
- Education focused on careers and business performance.
Programmes which create great careers for our graduates and excellent performance for the businesses in which they are engaged. Our graduates learn cutting-edge real world management from both leading researchers and high performance business executives and entrepreneurs.
- A set of values – “put in more than you take out”.
We take a deep and responsible view of the term ‘business performance’ which creates an awareness beyond profit to include the impact of business on the wider economy and society. We expect our graduates to ‘put in more than they take out’ of the economy and society throughout their career.
- The personal development and well-being of our students.
We provide opportunities for our students to 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 real-business educational environment.
The University is located right in the centre of the vibrant and friendly Dublin City. We are adjacent to: the Irish Financial Services Centre (IFSC), Europe’s digital industries capital, government and public sector management headquarters, city centre retail, professional services industries and Ireland’s cultural industry sectors. Quite simply, we have cutting edge global corporations and high performance new ventures on our doorstep. We are based in a highly entrepreneurial university and provide students with the education which they need to excel in established and new businesses. An entrepreneurial hub will be located at the core of our new business school building and we already provide students with excellent opportunities to develop new ventures.
- Rigorous research which serves and critically evaluates business.
Creating and then disseminating research which addresses questions which both serve and critically engage with real-business practice and public policy.
