The School of Business at Trinity College Dublin is located on College Green, in Dublin's city centre. The School of Business is ranked 21st in the world, 1st in Ireland and 15th in Europe in the 2009 Eduniversal Global Top 100 Business Schools.[1][2] Trinity College Dublin is ranked as the best university in Ireland, and as the 43rd best worldwide in the 2009 THES - QS World University Rankings of universities.[3][4]

Originating as a School of Commerce, which was established in 1925 to offer B.A. and B.Comm. degrees in Trinity College, the School was transformed into a School of Business Studies in the 1960s. It is located in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences of Trinity College.[5] Established in 1964, its MBA is one of the three original MBA programmes in Europe. In 1976, the M.Sc. (Mgmt) degree in Management Practice for practising senior executives was launched, with a curriculum based on action research principles.

Programmes[edit]

The structure of the programmes offered by the School of Business is based on the principle of a broadly based education in business and social sciences, combined with the opportunity to specialise to a high level in a chosen subject or area.

B.B.S.[6] Bachelor of Business Studies Degree undergraduates specialise in Business with modules such as Strategic Management, Entrepreneurship and Non Profit Management.

BA Moderatorship in Business, Economic and Social Studies (BESS)[7] enables undergraduates to combine Business with Economics, Political Science or Sociology to honours level.

Business Studies and a Language degrees[8] undergraduates combine business studies with French, German, Spanish, Polish or Russian, a curriculum design which integrates business studies with language and cultural learning.

Law and Business[9] offers students the opportunity to study the legal framework of business activity and the economic and commercial context in which law operates.

Business and Computing[10] an undergraduate degree course which combines business with computer science and information systems design.

MBA[11] is offered on a one-year full-time or two-year part-time basis. Trinity College was one of the first European universities to offer an MBA programme in 1964. The Trinity MBA has developed continuously since then, and in 1999 it became the first Irish programme to receive international accreditation from the International Association of MBAs (AMBA).[12] The MBA comprises a formal taught component and an experiential project-based dimension.

M.Sc. in Finance[13] is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time pre-experience Master's course with the option of specialising in Financial Analysis, Accounting or Risk Management.

MSc in International Management[14] is a one year, full-time or two-year part-time pre-experience Master's course with the option of specialising in International Marketing, Social Entrepreneurship or Finance. The degree includes an international residency week in a university in either Brazil, Russia, India or China.

M.Sc. (Mgmt) is a suite of programmes for experienced, senior practising managers in private and public sectors. Each programme lasts two years. The programmes have an alumni body that traces the senior management ranks of industry in Ireland and of many multinational corporations.

Organisation Behaviour Programme[15] (intake 30),
Management Practice Programme[16] (intake 12),
Business Administration Programme[17] (intake 35).

M.Litt./Ph.D. programme[18] The School of Business offers outstanding students the opportunity to pursue advanced research, leading to the M.Litt. or the Ph.D. degree. In the second half of 2010, there are approximately 50 students at various stages of their research studies. Research can be undertaken on a full or part-time basis.

Campaign for New School of Business[edit]

Real Life – Real Understanding: the Campaign for the Trinity School of Business,[19] aims to raise €35m between 2010 and 2015. Its aim is to create an innovative business curriculum and building for undergraduate, masters and doctoral students as well as increasing the number of world-class researchers in the fields of international business, finance, management and entrepreneurship – all situated in a new, state-of-the-art building on the campus.


Current Research[edit]

The School's Research Strategy prioritises two programmatic research themes involving teams of researchers, postgraduates and research fellows: (i) International Business and (ii) The Non-Profit Landscape and Social Entrepreneurship. The School is also committed to fostering individual research and scholarship by all members of staff.

1. International Business[edit]

International Financial Integration (INFINITI):[20] INFINITI conducts research on international asset market linkages; international diversification and MNC’s; the effect of EU enlargement on international financial markets; International Asset Market integration and contagion; financial market efficiency; novel solutions to international indebtedness of developing countries.

Global Business and Foreign Direct Investment: the Global Business Systems Centre (GBSC) pursues research, in collaboration with the Institute for International Integration Studies (IIIS)[21] on the structure and dynamics of international supply chains; on business as a conduit for globalization; on the evolution of multi-industry value chains; and, in collaboration with Computer Science, on the development of novel software architecture for adaptive global supply chain design. Research in the area of Foreign Direct Investment is focussed on analysis of Ireland’s evolving position in the global economic geography of MNC activities; on ongoing developments in the sectors and activities of key interest to Ireland, including ICT, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, Internationally Traded Services and R&D; and on developments in the global regulatory and corporation-tax landscapes and their implications for Ireland.

Development: also forming part of the research agenda of the IIIS, this programme focuses on globalisation and national advantage, international trade, foreign direct investment and global economic geography. Through the Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI)[22] and the informal Conflict Resolution Consortium, this strand entails collaboration with other schools all across college, particularly – in the case of TIDI – with the Department of Economics and the Centre for Global Health and – in the area of Conflict Resolution – with the Irish School of Ecumenics.

2. The Non-Profit Landscape and Social Entrepreneurship[edit]

The Centre for Nonprofit Management (CNM) and the Initiative on Social Entrepreneurship focuses on research which examines the unique facets of organisations traditionally positioned between the public and private sectors, commonly known as the third sector. In 2006 the CNM carried out the largest ever mapping study of the nonprofit landscape in Ireland, and currently acts as a unique and extensive repository of research study and data relating to the nonprofit sector nationally.
