UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School

The School is built upon an extraordinary leadership gift from Dr Michael WJ Smurfit. His generosity, and that of our patrons, sponsors, alumni and friends, has allowed us to maintain our position as one of the top European business schools.



The Schools academics hold the highest qualifications from the worlds leading universities. This, with their business experience, help provide an environment of excellence in teaching and research where students study a wide range of subjects through a variety of teaching methods.


To help students towards potential graduate employment, we offer a dedicated career service under the direction of trained and experienced recruitment specialists. Our Career Managers are available throughout the year for one-to-one consultations, to help you identify career opportunities and provide support to you with your career planning. The Career Development and Skills team welcomes many employers and guest speakers throughout the academic year and students will be kept informed of opportunities to meet with visiting speakers from corporate organisations and recent graduates.
