Trinity College rose three places to reach 98th in the world, and, was named Ireland’s leading institution in the QS World University Rankings 2023.The improvement was due to a rise in citations (a measure of academic impact) across all three of Trinity’s academic faculties (Health Sciences, STEM, and Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences).

The rankings provide comparative analysis on the performance of the world’s top 1,422 universities in 100 countries.

Nurturing entrepreneurship is at the heart of The Trinity MBA programme where an entrepreneurial focus is woven through every module. The Scaling and Social Entrepreneurship projects allow students the opportunity to help fast-moving NGOs and SMEs scale their international growth and solve strategic issues when financial resources are constrained.

Trinity College Dublin has a tradition of Innovation with Trinity graduates being ranked by venture capital organisation Pitchbook as the most entrepreneurial in Europe for the past four years. Trinity Business School’s strategy is to galvanise and build on this strength in all its activities. The partnership of the Liffey Trust and The Trinity MBA is therefore a natural fit.
