About The School

The School is built upon an extraordinary leadership gift from Dr Michael WJ Smurfit. His generosity, and that of our patrons, sponsors, alumni and friends, has allowed us to maintain our position as one of the top European business schools.

At UCD Smurfit School, we have a wide range of programmes, including MBA, research programmes, specialist masters and executive education, which are designed to prepare graduates to face the challenges of the complex business world.

Our History

UCD College of Business has a long and distinguished history since it was established in 1908.

We became one of the first European universities to offer a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 1964

In 1991, the graduate school of business moved to the dedicated campus at Blackrock, with cutting edge facilities, spacious modern classrooms and the largest academic business library in the country.
