The Top 5 Reasons to Study an MBA in Ireland Right Now
As the cost of doing an MBA in America remains high and admission fiercely competitive, many professionals are looking further afield. An MBA opens doors to exceptional career opportunities and a global network of business leaders and peers, but for many, the expense and competition can be a barrier to achieving their goal.
Studying abroad is a popular choice for young US professionals aiming to further their careers in management. European countries such as Ireland, Europe’s fastest-growing economy, offer a haven for candidates looking to differentiate themselves through European experience whilst saving significant time and money.
Complete Your MBA in Half the Time at a Lower Cost
The Trinity MBA takes one year, as opposed to two years in the US. An equivalent full-time MBA in the US can cost between $50,000 to $160,000 per year, while an MBA in Ireland — priced at €34,000 (approx. $42,000) – is more affordable. Cost aside, many American students are attracted to Ireland’s friendly, welcoming culture and people, as well as its two year graduate work visa enabling graduates to work in Ireland once they have completed their MBA. Students also enjoy easy access to the rest of Europe in their personal time via low-cost airlines, sampling a plethora of different cultures, cuisines, experiences and languages.
Achieve Your Career Goals with Dedicated Careers Support
The success of the Trinity MBA Alumni speak for themselves - three years post-graduation, graduates see an average 58.8% increase in their salary, 57% have increased level of seniority and 75% have changed industry sector.
Trinity Business School’s exclusive career development team provide advice, workshops, one-to-one coaching and introductions to an extensive portfolio of company recruiters, industry contacts and alumni. The Trinity MBA alumni have lifelong access to this service. “The careers advisers are, both professionally and personally, one of the most important assets that Trinity Business School provides its MBA students with,” says Daniel Jiménez y Winkelmann - Trinity MBA Alumnus, who now works as Head of Sales and Client Solutions at Facebook’s European headquarters in Dublin.
Study in the Heart of Dublin, a Global Business Hub
Taught within one of the oldest universities in the world, the Trinity MBA was one of the first MBA programs in Europe. The Business School sits right at the heart of Dublin, a thriving capital city and one of the most dynamic technology and business hubs in Europe.
Ireland has a small, highly globalised economy, with well-established foreign direct investment, generating significant exports across business sectors. Its pro-business attitude enables companies to set up swiftly, with minimum red tape, in a connected environment. The top global finance, tech, agricultural and pharmaceutical multinationals, and energetic start-ups, are only minutes away.
Gain a Truly International Experience
Trinity’s classroom and faculty are made of many different nationalities and business backgrounds — 14 countries are represented in the current Trinity MBA class. We believe that everyone on the program has something to both learn and teach and collaboration is strongly encouraged. Students also undertake a range of international residency weeks, visiting top business schools worldwide in South Africa, China and Belgium.
Experience Live Action Learning in Real Company Projects
The single most differentiating feature of the Trinity MBA is that students undertake three full-time projects that focus on complex strategic issues in real organisations. Unlike other MBAs, students deep-dive into specific industries and a range of organisations, working directly with senior executives in local businesses, NGOs and multinationals to solve real strategic business issues, gaining invaluable experience and skills. Salesforce, Deloitte, Volkswagen and Dell are just some of the participating companies in the 2017 Trinity MBA.
“A beautiful and historic campus setting, classmates from many different cultures and backgrounds, lecturers with interesting insights into best industry practice and academic thinking, made the Trinity MBA programme a truly stimulating experience. A very worthwhile investment in both your personal and professional development.” Michael Kennedy - Trinity MBA Alumnus, now the Chief Commercial Officer of Soft Telecom.
