Exec Ed Roundup: Trinity Business School Appoints New Dean

Trinity Business School


Laurent Muzellec has been elected as the new Dean of Trinity Business School in Dublin. Muzellec steps into the role after many years at the Business School having made a significant contribution to the development of the school, setting up the Centre for Digital Business and Analytics and establishing the Masters in Digital Marketing Strategy.

Prior to joining Trinity, Muzellec worked at UCD Smurfit and the ESSCA School of Management. He previously worked at the French Embassy Trade Office in New York and as a product manager of an Internet Mapping application in Paris. His research on digital business models, social media and brand management have been featured in many international leading publications.

Muzellec follows dean Andrew Burke who has led the business school since 2015. In his two terms, dean Burke oversaw an expansion to nearly triple its original size. The school also developed an €80M state-of-the-art, eco-friendly building, obtained a Triple Accreditation, and expanded Trinity’s educational offering.

Muzellec will build upon that work while implementing the school’s strategy “Transforming Business for Good,” with a particular focus on social inclusion and enhancing student experience through more flexible and innovative methods of learning and a modern curriculum.

“It is with great enthusiasm that I take on these new responsibilities. The School’s commitment to the mission of ‘Transforming Business for Good’ will raise the bar in the business education community towards making bigger, bolder commitments towards tackling climate change,” Muzellec says.

“Our tradition of providing a research-led and modern education, that engages with business and society, provides a solid foundation to continue our ambitious development in Ireland and internationally.”

Keith Granelli

Keith Granelli has joined Yale University’s School of Management as the director of admissions for the MBA for Executives program. Granelli’s educational experience includes serving as a school administrator in China and South Korea and working for seven-plus years as director of graduate international admissions at Sacred Heart University.

He has a bachelor’s in environmental sciences and a master’s in geology from Boston College, and earned his MBA attending classes evenings after work.

“My road to Yale has been circuitous, but it all started just a few blocks up the road from Evans Hall. A bit of background: my father is a proud alumnus of Yale College (Class of 1968), and my childhood home is less than a mile from my new office,” he writes. “I can relate to our EMBA students who must balance a demanding professional and academic workload along with personal and family commitments.”
