Trinity Business School’s Executive MBA program ranks first in Ireland and 59th worldwide in the 2021 Financial Times EMBA rankings.

The ranking is based on surveys of the participating schools and their alumni and includes information on salaries, career progress, work experience, gender diversity, the proportion of international students and the number of articles published by each school.

University College Dublin’s Smurfit EMBA came 72nd.


This comes after Trinity Business School also ranked 18th in the European Union and fifth in Ireland and the UK in the 2020 Global Masters in Finance Rankings.

Trinity’s MSc Operations and Supply Chain Management, which was included in the QS Business Masters Ranking for the first time, took sixth place worldwide. The MSc Marketing retained a top 20 position and took 18th place out of 105 courses.

In a press release, Prof. Andrew Burke, the dean of Trinity Business School said:
“Our employees, students and alumni have put a lot of energy and creativity into transforming the school over the past five years. These efforts have led to a strong internationalization of our research and education programs, growth of around 150 percent, quadruple accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA & Athena SWAN) and the self-financing of our new, environmentally friendly, award-winning building. ”

Burke continues: “In just half a decade, our innovative community has created a leading global business school in the heart of Dublin City, which is repeatedly reflected in international rankings. This is a boon not only for the companies based here, but also for our graduates who work in a global context, be it here in Ireland or abroad. “

Professor John Dong, Director of Trinity EMBA, added in a press release: “I would like to congratulate the MBA team, students and alumni on the outstanding achievement we have achieved together. We will continue our best practices with a unique project-based curriculum as we continue to improve and innovate the program in other aspects. Looking ahead, we plan to provide our students with a broader international learning experience after the global pandemic and to develop their leadership role in a rapidly changing business environment. “

Trinity’s EMBA has outperformed other schools such as Ivey Business School in Canada, Henley Business School in the UK and Copenhagen Business School in Denmark.

The business school also offers a Flexible Executive MBA, where 80 percent of teaching is offered online and 20 percent on campus.

“The Flexible Executive MBA is designed to take the project-based learning approach of our existing full-time and Executive MBA programs already offered at Trinity and reflects an awareness of global career trends that have been on the rise for many years but catalyzed by the COVID-19 pandemic, ”said Burke.

A new multimedia study room called The Matrix, launched earlier this year, will be used to deliver the content for this MBA.

“This is a state-of-the-art interactive hub developed exclusively for the program. It allows participants to naturally choose when and where to get involved while knowing they are receiving the same high quality Trinity MBA as they would with a traditional classroom-based program, ”said Dr. Eimear Nolan, the director of Trinity’s Flexible Executive MBA.

The Matrix Room allows students to choose when and where to study, as all program materials are available online to reflect “Trinity Business School’s awareness of the needs of today’s professionals”.

The program also offers students the opportunity to choose from a range of elective modules that enable enrollments to tailor their education to their specific career goals.

Trinity Business School is one of the best business schools in the world and has triple accreditation status.
