Howard Davies, Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science added “We believe that TRIUM students gain a unique grasp of the ways in which social, political and economic policy impact on every aspect of how modern companies and organizations operate across the globe.

Launched in September 2001, TRIUM was the first executive MBA program to provide an authentically global curriculum and educational experience, made possible through a unique alliance between three world-renowned universities: New York University Stern School of Business (NYU Stern), the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and HEC Paris.
