The UCD Quinn School of Business (Scoil Ghnó Uí Chuinn, COBÁC), commonly The Quinn School, or simply Quinn, is the building in which the UCD School of Business's undergraduate programme is based.

A short while after the building was named UCD reorganised its academic structure, moving from a system of faculties and departments to colleges and schools. This has caused some confusion over the standing of the Quinn "School" [sic]. The UCD College of Business and Law has two constituent schools; the School of Business and the School of Law. The School of Business is an administrative unit, The Quinn School and Michael Smurfit School are physical buildings.


The school is located in a modern three-story building on the main UCD campus at Belfield, Dublin, and is named after Lochlann Quinn, the chairman of Allied Irish Bank, who was one of the main financial contributors to the school. Mr.Quinn graduated from UCD with a BComm in 1962. Other donors included Philip Berber of CyberCorp, Bank of Ireland, AIB, Irish Life & Permanent, Accenture, KPMG, PwC, Dunnes Stores and Ernst & Young.[1]

When The School opened in 2002, it claimed to be the only business school in Europe with a specific focus on technology and e-learning. All students are required to own specially-configured wireless laptops, with teaching structured around the use of wireless network.[1]


There are seven business programmes options taught at the UCD Quinn School of Business.

Bachelor of Commerce
Bachelor of Commerce International (with Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish)
Bachelor of Business & Law
Bachelor of Science (Economics & Finance)
Bachelor of Business Studies (Part-time, low residency programme)
