Economist will teach students in the school’s MBA programme


Economist David McWilliams is to deliver a course on global economics at Trinity Business School.

Prof McWilliams, a Trinity graduate himself, will teach students in the school’s highly regarded MBA programme.

“The Trinity MBA is the only MBA in Ireland using a project-based learning methodology, this gives the participants the opportunity to apply their business and strategy skills in a series of live company projects while they progress through the programme,” he said.

“As someone who strongly believes that the real world must be at the heart of education, I think this is the right approach.”

Trinity MBA director Michael Flynn said: “David’s extensive experience as an economist and writer as well as his past experience as a strategist with leading investment houses both in London and New York make him a strong fit for our executive MBA programme.”

The university recently secured planning permission for a new €70 million bespoke business school, located on Pearse Street side of the campus, which is due to completed by 2018.
