First launched in 1964, the Trinity MBA offers participants a rigorous, experiential, and transformative education, preparing future leaders for the challenges of tomorrow. A globally recognised and highly ranked programme, the Trinity MBA’s project-based approach complements the university’s four centuries of scholarly learning with a master's programme that encourages tutorial discussion and debate, as well as bringing participants inside businesses to unlock leadership potential and build global networks.
Leadership and Professional Development is integral to the Trinity MBA. Individual and team coaching, workshops and industry guest lectures run continually throughout the programme. Three distinct leadership learning modules provide the tools to develop your personal leadership style, self-awareness and knowledge.
Throughout the MBA, you will have the opportunity to hear from industry speakers on a range of leadership areas including resilience, developing effective teams, mastering personal change, and group dynamics.
