The UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School Full-time MBA programme has been ranked 91st in the world and 25th in Europe, according to the prestigious 2014 Financial Times Top 100 Global Full-time MBA Rankings. It is the only Irish business school listed in the rankings, and one of less than 50 schools worldwide that have been consistently ranked in the top 100 over the past 15 years.
“Our students are competing with graduates from the best schools in the world in an increasingly competitive international market,” said Professor Ciarán O hÓgartaigh, Dean, UCD Business School.
“We are ambitious for our students and we must ensure they are able to compete. These rankings results are of enormous benefit in enabling them to do so. These results help us to attract the very best faculty and students.”
As the only Irish business school listed in these rankings, the UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School maintains its status as Ireland’s leading centre of excellence in business education.
The school’s placement in these global rankings follows UCD Business School’s successful re-accreditation in 2013 with one of the world’s leading international accreditations for business schools – AACSB. UCD Business School is the only business school in Ireland, and one of less than 60 worldwide, to hold the ‘triple crown’ of accreditation from the three centres of business and academic excellence;EQUIS (Europe); AACSB (US); and AMBA (UK).
