School of Business

  • Description
  • Trin­ity Col­lege is Ireland’s pre­mier uni­ver­sity, with a tra­di­tion of excel­lence in research and teach­ing stretch­ing over four cen­turies. Busi­ness is a long estab­lished dis­ci­pline in the Col­lege, hav­ing been formed as a School of Com­merce in 1925 and trans­formed into the School of Busi­ness in the six­ties. Today, the School is recog­nised for its unique and inno­v­a­tive degree pro­grammes, com­mit­ment to research-​based teach­ing, and its inti­mate, tutorially-​oriented edu­ca­tional phi­los­o­phy. The School enjoys a strong inter­na­tional pro­file and main­tains excel­lent rela­tion­ships with Irish and global organ­i­sa­tions in the pri­vate, pub­lic and vol­un­tary sectors.

    The School’s mis­sion is to edu­cate the most able under­grad­u­ates, post­grad­u­ates and expe­ri­enced man­agers, pro­vid­ing each with the best dis­ci­pli­nary com­pe­tence in man­age­ment as well as a crit­i­cal and inquir­ing under­stand­ing of organ­i­sa­tions. We achieve this by recruit­ing and nur­tur­ing able schol­ars who engage in research of inter­na­tional stand­ing as the essen­tial foun­da­tion for research-​based teach­ing. Our stu­dents, fac­ulty, staff and alumni com­prises one of the finest busi­ness school com­mu­ni­ties in the Ireland.

    Cur­rent Research

    The School fos­ters indi­vid­ual research and schol­ar­ship by all mem­bers of staff and pri­ori­tises two pro­gram­matic research themes involv­ing teams of researchers, post­grad­u­ates and research fellows:

    Inter­na­tional Business

    This theme has three strands:

    • Inter­na­tional Finan­cial Inte­gra­tion (INFINITI)
      Also form­ing part of the research agenda of the Insti­tute for Inter­na­tional Inte­gra­tion Stud­ies (IIIS), INFINITI con­ducts research on inter­na­tional asset mar­ket link­ages, inter­na­tional diver­si­fi­ca­tion and MNC’s, the effect of EU enlarge­ment on inter­na­tional finan­cial mar­kets, Inter­na­tional Asset Mar­ket inte­gra­tion and con­ta­gion; finan­cial mar­ket effi­ciency, par­tic­u­larly as mea­sured by cal­en­dar anom­alies; novel solu­tions to inter­na­tional indebt­ed­ness of devel­op­ing countries.
    • Global Busi­ness Sys­tems
      The Global Busi­ness Sys­tems Cen­tre (GBSC) pur­sues research, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Insti­tute for Inter­na­tional Inte­gra­tion Stud­ies (IIIS), on the struc­ture and dynam­ics of inter­na­tional sup­ply chains; on busi­ness as a con­duit for glob­al­iza­tion; on the evo­lu­tion of multi-​industry value chains; and, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Com­puter Sci­ence, on the devel­op­ment of novel soft­ware archi­tec­ture for adap­tive global sup­ply chain design.
    • Devel­op­ment
      Also form­ing part of the research agenda of the IIIS, this pro­gramme focuses on glob­al­i­sa­tion and national advan­tage, global eco­nomic geog­ra­phy and tax harmonisation.

    Non­profit Man­age­ment & Social Entrepreneurship

    The Cen­tre for Non­profit Man­age­ment (CNM) con­ducts research on the ‘third sec­tor’, non­profit and vol­un­tary orga­ni­za­tions, their emer­gence, man­age­ment and impact on wider soci­ety; on the extent and shape of the Third Sec­tor in Ire­land through its sec­tor map­ping project; and, from 2008, on social entrepreneurship.
