Seasonal Greetings and Thanks from the Dean


2015 has been a period of rapid growth and development at Trinity Business School.  In addition to running our usual range of research and education activities across the undergraduate, MBA, MSc and doctoral programmes, the School has been engaged in an extensive range of new developments and innovations which include:

• The first round of student recruitment for our new Bachelor of Business Studies Degree,
• Development of new MSc programmes including Marketing, Financial Risk Management and Digital Marketing,
• Development of a new Diploma in Accounting,
• Innovation in our degree programmes (particularly in the realm of more ‘into action’ learning as well as ethics and value driven management education),
• Re-engagement with the executive education market with a new business growth programme,
• A new School website,
• New branding for the School,
• Significant progress on industry accreditation and rankings (including the creation of an in-house accreditation and rankings team, re-accreditation of our MBA by AMBA, joining the Association of Business Schools and AACSB, and ranked as 1st in Ireland and 16th in Western Europe by the World’s Business School Deans),
• A growth of roughly a third in our graduate student numbers
• Recruitment of excellent new faculty and professional staff – over 20 new people joined the School in a single year!

This has all been achieved by a huge School effort across faculty (full time and adjunct), professional staff, students (particularly class reps and those involved in the newly established Business Society’s Chamber of Commerce), our alumni, our eminent and active Advisory Board plus a lot of people who just want to help us achieve our mission to enhance Trinity Business School’s impact on graduates’ careers, business and society as well as its international reputation.  So to EVERYONE a BIG WELL DONE and THANK YOU on behalf of Trinity College Dublin. 

Have a great Christmas and New Year celebration. I look forward to working with you again next year in order to continue the growth and development of Trinity Business School.

Best wishes,

Andrew Burke
