University College Dublin (UCD)is one of Europe’s leading research-intensive universities where undergraduate education, postgraduate masters and PhD training, research, and community engagement form a dynamic continuum of activity.

Our UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School is Ireland’s leading business school. We are one of less than 50 business schools worldwide to hold triple accreditation from the US, Europe and the UK accrediting bodies.

At our Blackrock campus, we have superb facilities for postgraduate education and research. This makes UCD Smurfit a leader : not just in Ireland but in Europe.

The Smurfit School’s Industrial Relations and Human Resources Group is the nucleus of a major university centre in Ireland for the study of work and employment relations. The Group is involved in the provision of teaching, research and commentary on the changing world of work in Ireland and internationally.

Drawn from diverse academic backgrounds and a number of countries, members of the Industrial Relations and Human Resources Group are among the leading Irish and European scholars in the field. They share a commitment to independent and critical teaching and scholarship and their teaching and research takes account of the interests of all the main stakeholders in the world of work : employers, employees, trade unions and the wider community.

On the international stage, the disciplines of human resource management and industrial relations in the Smurfit School and their students are networked through the Group’s association with the ILR School at Cornell University, Ithaca (New York) and the EMLS network.
