The programme which features extremely positively across several criteria in the FT Rankings, was ranked 85th globally, and 22nd in Europe – both rankings up on 2005 and ahead of the UCD, Smurfit Business School.

“To be a top 10 MBA programme in three highly valued categories: International Mobility (2nd), Value for Money of the programme (3rd place) and Alumni Salary Levels (7th) reflects extremely well the ethos and substance of the Trinity MBA.  We believe a programme that engages the students with the community, global business leaders and strong partner schools offers the best possible opportunity for learning and career development – and we believe that is the programme we offer.  It is great to see a positive review of our result substantiated by the Financial Times,” stated Karen F Finigan, Trinity MBA Director

“The Trinity-IMI Graduate School of Management is extremely proud of the fulltime MBA programme and its top position in the FT league tables for international mobility and salary levels of graduates.  As we develop the Graduate School of Management and our partnership with the IMI, the prospects for building our top 10 positions is unlimited, ” said Gerard McHugh, Head of Trinity Business School

The Trinity MBA programme prides itself on having a broad, diverse international representation, attracting students from all over world. Statistics for the class of 2006 reveal that 64 are international students, who hail from all over the world, including Canada, USA, Colombia, Korea, Greece, Spain, France and the UK.

In addition, over 50% of the student body this year are women. “We find that the breadth of the Trinity offering in taking the classroom to the community resonates well with women”,. commented Karen Finigan. Over the academic year the students are required to complete three ‘in-company’ projects.  These involve working with not for profit organisations of their choice, start up companies and blue chip corporates.
