"The Trinity MBA offers students an opportunity to develop their leadership and general management skills through an exceptionally interactive, team based approach to learning. I found the intensive programme to be very much personalised while affording me with valuable one-on-one relationships with the faculty. The programme has a strong international focus where students learn business principles relevant for a more global world. During my time at Trinity I had the opportunity to work with some of the most remarkably dynamic individuals who came to the programme from all over the world. I thoroughly enjoyed the Trinity MBA experience and will cherish not only the knowledge I gained but also the friendships that I made."

"The Trinity MBA gave me the opportunity to put myself on the forefront in dealing with strategic business issues. The school’s emphasis on collaboration, its focus on leadership and motivation, and the extensive global network of alums and faculty made Trinity College an obvious choice for me. The MBA program's focus on problem solving using real life scenarios was the perfect grounding for working in any fast-paced and dynamic business environment. Learning from Trinity's formidable faculty in a beautiful campus right at the heart of Dublin made the whole experience unforgettable. Above all else, for me the friendships I formed with my classmates are priceless and have already paid great dividends. The MBA experience has definitely exceeded my expectations and in my opinion the Trinity MBA is not just a step in the right direction but a leap towards your professional goals.
