Candidates are permitted to submit applications for a number of different scholarships; but, even if they are awarded more than one scholarship, they are restricted to accepting just one scholarship grant. There is no way to accumulate or combine multiple scholarships or bursaries. The more qualified candidates will receive the larger reward. Candidates are not permitted to transfer or use one scholarship or bursary against another program, nor can they use it to pay for another program.

The student is only eligible for and will receive the scholarship or bursary for the academic year in which they have been allocated a place at UCD Smurfit. Scholarships and bursaries cannot be carried over to a subsequent academic year under any circumstances. If a student ultimately chooses to defer their offer, they will be disqualified from receiving their scholarship or bursary and will be needed to submit a new application at a later date. Candidates who are already in possession of a SUSI grant will be disqualified from receiving a scholarship of any kind. The UCD Smurfit School Scholarships are not applicable to courses offered through UCD Smurfit Executive Development, the UCD Belfield campus, or any programs that are run in conjunction with UCD Belfield. These programs include the Master of Science degrees in Biotechnology and Business, Biotherapeutics and Business, and International Law and Business.


About the Scholarship:

In 1964, University College Dublin was one of the first universities in Europe to give students the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in business administration. (MBA). UCD Smurfit School has over 100 faculty members, 1,400 students, and 98,000 alumni. It is one of the few business schools in the world to hold triple international accreditation (US – AACSB, European – EQUIS, and UK – AMBA). It is also one of the few business schools in the world to hold triple international accreditation. Both The Economist and the Financial Times have consistently ranked the institution’s programs among the best in all of Europe when it comes to business education. The School is a member of both the CEMS and the Global Network for Advanced Management, which are both alliances of well-known business schools located all over the world.

We have more than 20 years of triple accreditation from EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB, making us the most prestigious business school in all of Ireland. Our programs are extremely well respected. Our full-time MBA program has been highly regarded for more than a decade, and it has risen to the 67th spot in The Economist’s global ranking of full-time MBA programs for 2021. We are delighted to be ranked among the top one percent of business schools around the globe, and we take pride in being Ireland’s only member of the two most prestigious business school alliances, CEMS and the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM).


The Smurfit MBA at the University of California, Davis is a game-changer. Its purpose is to educate the next generation of world leaders so that they may make a meaningful impact on the societies and economies in which they are active participants and where they live and work. Our students are able to take advantage of the opportunities presented by Ireland’s most prestigious educational institution while also appreciating the coziness of a dedicated campus situated just on the outskirts of Dublin’s downtown area. The participants finish the MBA with an international qualification and a transformed professional life thanks to a rich mixture of motivated participants, academic excellence, the Leadership Development Program, and a specialized MBA Career Service. In addition, they have the opportunity to network with other successful professionals. After you have completed your education, it is our intention to have you be sufficiently prepared to make an impactful contribution in both business and society. Due to the fact that we focus a significant emphasis on learning through hands-on experience, you will acquire a distinctive blend of both business and behavioral skills. We will teach you how to think creatively, help you develop a global mindset, and enhance your leadership abilities by concentrating on negotiation, communication, networking, and teamwork, as well as developing your critical thinking skills.

Triple-accredited business schools make up less than one percent of the world’s total business schools. Our accreditations provide an assurance to students that they will graduate with a degree that is of a high level and is recognized internationally, as evaluated by international peers who are independent from one another.

One of the pillars upon which our reputation is built is the quality and expertise of our faculty, which numbers one hundred and consists of renowned teaching specialists in fields that span the essential fields of business and management. These specialists have been recruited from all over the world. Because of their authoritative voices and extensive knowledge, the members of our faculty are frequently sought out by national and international media outlets for their contributions. They are leaders in their fields all across the world, with twenty percent of our academics publishing in Financial Times 50 publications and ten percent publishing in Financial Times 50 journals three times or more. In addition, although women only make up thirty percent of our teaching staff, they are responsible for sixty-five percent of all publications.
