Leadership and Professional Development is integral to the Trinity MBA. Individual and team coaching, workshops and industry guest lectures run continually throughout the programme. Three distinct leadership learning modules provide the tools to develop your personal leadership style, self-awareness and knowledge.
The Trinity MBA kicks off with a unique induction week in County Mayo, Ireland. An entirely immersive, rustic and offline experience, you will begin your Leadership and Professional Development journey and forge bonds with your classmates.
Throughout the MBA, you will have the opportunity to hear from industry speakers on a range of leadership areas including resilience, developing effective teams, mastering personal change, and group dynamics.
The single most differentiating feature of the Trinity MBA is the focus on live action learning. Students gain experience in new industries and organisations, solving real-world business problems.
Working in groups, you work directly with and deliver solutions to the senior management teams of organizations via three Company Projects .
Strategic Company Project
Working with a multinational company or leading domestic player, you deliver a comprehensive strategic audit of the industry, problem analysis and a blueprint for change. Delivered over four stages, this project results in four presentations to the company, and a major report of the team’s findings, recommendations, and implementation plans.
This project represents an intensive, live and ‘flash’ consulting project with a scaling firm to identify, diagnose and offer strategic recommendations on how to manage their scaling. The scaling project relates to a growth related impediment or challenge the company is facing and that has become (or could potentially become) a bottleneck for achieving greater scale.
This unique experience covers a wide range of strategic and market development challenges for firms across a range of sectors in Ireland.
Social Enterprise Project
This Company Project works directly with a Social Enterprise that is focused on a social mission, such as an NGO or a Foundation with a specific social mission and purpose, within a set timeframe with little or no financial resources. The project might consist of a new marketing strategy, a new plan for measuring impact or a re-branding initiate, amongst others.
