The School is built upon an extraordinary leadership gift from Dr Michael WJ Smurfit. We’ve built mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with many Irish and international companies through our Corporate Partnership Programme. Added to this is the invaluable support of the Irish and North American Boards, Smurfit alumni and other friends.
Thanks to these generous contributions, we attract the best educators and researchers in the world. Our corporate partners have access to distinguished faculty, exceptional students, broad research capabilities and a host of academic disciplines.
Our corporate partners are an elite group who are committed to investing in the future, knowing they’re creating value both for their organisation and the community.
Through the programme, your organisation can build a mutually beneficial relationship with our global community: one that includes 20 corporate partners, 100 renowned faculty members and more than 1,300 students. The funding you contribute is invested in providing enhanced educational opportunities and facilities for our students.
Membership of the Corporate Partnership Programme is for three years and the benefits to your organisation last a lifetime.
Our corporate partners are part of an elite group that spans a range of sectors, such as financial services, pharmaceutical, consulting, consumer and industrial products. They share a commitment to investing in the future and preparing the next generation of global business leaders.
