Trinity Business School



Trinity Business School was founded in 1925 and has had an innovative role in management education and research which both serve and influence industry. Over the years, our School has played a pioneering role in bringing the MBA to Europe as well as having a series of top ranked MSc programmes.


1.    Education focused on careers and business performance. Programmes which create great careers for our graduates and excellent performance for the businesses in which they are engaged.  

2.   We take a deep and responsible view of the term ‘business performance’ which creates an awareness beyond profit to include the impact of business on the wider economy and society.  

3.    The personal development and well-being of our students. We provide opportunities for our students to explore and to develop their business and personal potential on our degree programmes as well to prepare them for a healthy career existence in today’s dynamic but often stressful work environment.


Research in Trinity Business School is both a collective and individual endeavour. The basic element of research is the inquisitive individual mind, seeking answers to managerially relevant questions. Much of our work is carried out individually, but much also is undertaken in local, national or international collaborations. Our research, broadly considered, falls under a number of thematic areas. These themes are not however exclusive and we all work, separately and together, across a wide and diverse range. 


Named by New York Times as one of the top 150 global universities most highly rated by employers, we provide opportunities for students to develop their full potential and prepare them for today’s work environment. Our Career Development team give career guidance as well as the tools and skills necessary to advance in their academic and professional lives.
