Trinity Business School joins the top tier of global business schools following its full EQUIS accreditation by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) which was announced this week.
This prestigious and elite quality assessment accreditation places Trinity Business School in the top 2% of business schools in the world. It will join other leading business schools such as the Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge, the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, the ESADE Business School in Barcelona, the London Business School among others. The School is now double accredited having already secured AMBA accreditation.
The EQUIS Accreditation is in major part a recognition of the scale of development that Trinity Business School has undergone in recent years. It is currently the fastest growing established business school in Europe having grown by 132% over the last three years. The School has greatly expanded across so many fronts including major growth in new degree programmes, international research, executive education, outreach events such as the Trinity Business & Technology Forum, as well as major growth in the number of stellar students, faculty and professional staff. Increased diversity has been a major feature of the growth; particularly in relation to gender and internationalisation. Access to education from underprivileged groups is the next stage priority for the School.
Commenting on this recent EQUIS accreditation, the Dean of Trinity Business School Professor Andrew Burke said:“EQUIS top-tier international recognition for Trinity Business School is timely as we will be moving into our new €80 million state of the art new building on campus in the New Year. It took major team effort and innovation to transform the School to achieve this accolade and so big congratulations are owed to all our staff, students, alumni, benefactors, Advisory Board and the wider College; particularly the Provost and others in leadership positions in Trinity College Dublin.”
