What is TBR?
Trinity Business Review (TBR) is Ireland’s go to business publication for university students. Founded in 2018 by students from Trinity College Dublin, we aim to provide our readers with a unique insight into the business world and to maintain this as the leading student run business publication in Europe.
This publication will be a direct link from the private sector to university students to communicate about potential careers and internships that are available and to give an insight to what a future career might look like. Trinity Business Review is an edition-based publication that aims to be the launchpad for current students in their careers prospects. We will provide you with up-to-date business news both at home and abroad.
It is a multi-disciplinary publication. We want to engage students studying courses other than business. In today’s ever-changing environment we recognise that students may go on to work in the business world even though their undergraduate degree may suggest otherwise.
