Trinity’s MBA Continues to be Top Performer in Global Rankings

Today the international business publication, CEO Magazine, has announced its latest global rankings for MBA programmes and has placed the Trinity MBA in the top tier of MBAs in the world.  It is the only Irish MBA to be ranked in the magazine’s international premier league of MBA programmes.  This announcement follows a similar result in March where the QS Executive MBA rankings rated Trinity as the only Irish MBA programme in their top Tier of European Programmes.  Similarly, Eduniversal places the Trinity full time and executive MBA programmes as 5th in Europe and 1st in Ireland while the Economist also includes Trinity in its top elite of Global MBA programmes.  

Professor Andrew Burke, Dean of Trinity Business School commented: “The globalisation of the labour market for MBA graduates means that programmes need to be recognisable and valued by employers across the world.  Trinity Business School graduates always benefit from the strong brand of the University and increasingly this is being matched by a consistently high international performance in MBA rankings.  Indeed, consistency is key because every ranking has its uniqueness and quirks so when you observe an MBA programme like Trinity performing highly regardless of variations in the scoring criteria it shows that the programme passes the robustness test of adding value at the highest level to diverse organisations and graduates across the world."

Michael Flynn, Director of the Trinity MBA added: “These rankings are compiled through a variety of means including student and alumni feedback as well as employer perspectives and it is the positive views of these important stakeholders that we find most rewarding. Employer endorsement of the programme is particularly important to us as it results in the career paths of our graduates being further enhanced.The Trinity MBA is Ireland’s only ‘project based MBA’ programme where candidates spend much of their time working in live action learning projects with a series of organisations such as NGO’s, fast moving SME’s and large multinationals including deployment of consulting teams this year to countries such as Germany, Poland and France. These projects together with international electives in Africa, Asia and Europe have made the programme a truly international programme and this is reflected in the prominence of the programme in international rankings.”
