Dublin is one of Europe’s oldest cities and has a long history of academic
excellence. A vibrant and multi-cultural city, it was recently voted as the
world's 8th best city to study in by QS. Dublin is a diverse business hub
and is currently home to the European Headquarters for many
multinational organisations including Google, Facebook and Twitter.
Dublin brings together the best of traditional Ireland as well as modern
Europe. While renowned for its pubs, cafes and nightlife, you're never far
from the sea or the green hills of the countryside.
“The Smurfit MBA not only changed my perspectives on business, but also on myself as a person. Through the classroom interactions and Leadership
Development Programme, I learned about team and group dynamics and the personality types that drive people to interact the way they do.”
