My campus visits concluded at Trinity College Dublin. I was excited to visit the world-renowned campus, located in the heart of Dublin. Trinity College is the oldest University in Ireland, dating back to 1592, and was one of the first European universities to offer an MBA program in 1964.

I met with Aoife Fitzpatrick, Student Recruitment Officer at the School of Business. Coincidentally, I was on campus the same day as Trinity's graduation! Here is Aoife on the Trinity campus grounds, surrounded by celebrating graduates:

The Trinity one-year full-time MBA program is designed with small class sizes of about 30-35 students, emphasizing the Trinity tradition of "tutorially oriented learning." This allows for greater individual attention, as reflected by strong relationships between faculty and students. Trinity also follows a team-based model, encouraging individuals to participate in teams throughout their MBA learning experience. Aside from small class size, Trinity also boasts a strong international focus, with the class of 2013 comprised of a student body from diverse backgrounds and nationalities.

Fun Facts About Trinity Campus and Student Life:

  • The program is home to unique student profiles such as a pilot, an MD, 2 PhD's, and an budding entrepreneur without a Bachelor’s degree.
  • The deputy prime-minister in Vietnam is a graduate of the Trinity MBA program.
  • Trinity is the main sponsor to to Career Zoo, a huge career recruitment event taking place on Feb 15th. Aoife is the lead on this project!
  • The Trinity MBA has a strong focus on Social Entrepreneurship. See video below!
