UCD School of Business has welcomed 14 new faculty members to the University for the new academic year. The majority of the new faculty are international appointees from as far afield as South Korea, as well as from the USA, Canada, France, Italy and Germany. In addition, there are a number of the new faculty appointees from Ireland. The new faculty will lecture at both the undergraduate school, UCD Quinn School of Business, and at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business and will cover a diverse range of business subjects including accountancy, marketing, management information systems, global leadership, banking, finance, sustainable supply chain management, and human resources..

Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh, Dean, UCD School of Business, said, “To support the demand for graduates who can work across our increasingly globalised society we searched nationally and internationally for the best and brightest to join the world leading academics already teaching at UCD. Our students deserve nothing less. With 60% of our new faculty coming from overseas, this is a vote of confidence in how positively they feel about Ireland’s university education system and our future prospects as a nation. Each one brings a diverse range of academic research, real-world multi-cultural experience and commitment that will provide our students with the necessary critical perspectives they need to succeed in leading change in society. We are pleased to welcome this new group of faculty to our University.”

Professor Ciaran O hÓgartaigh concluded, “The recruitment of these new faculty members is one of the key initiatives designed to consolidate the school’s position as one of Europe’s leading business schools. We are the only Irish business school listed in the Financial Times ranking of the top 100 global MBA programmes, maintaining our status as Ireland’s leading centre of excellence in this field.”
