About Strathclyde Business School

The Strathclyde MBA is not just a business programme, it's a stimulating, challenging, life-changing experience, which will make you question, re-think and re-evaluate how you do business. The programme is highly experiential and based on collaborative learning. Students share their varied work experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills.

The MBA will shape and guide you as a reflective, open- thinking, adaptive learner. This is facilitated through enhanced understanding of the interplay of theory and practice in management. In particular it:

  • provides the skills required for progression to higher level policy-forming positions
  • allows you to make successful career transitions
  • facilitates the move from technical specialism to general management
  • polishes the skills and enhances the abilities of people working for themselves or about to set up in business.

Many routes - one MBA

The Strathclyde MBA is a very flexible programme. We offer a variety of study routes, allowing you to choose a programme which suits both your work and/or personal circumstances.

  •  Full-time (12 months) MBA in Glasgow
  • Part-time (24 months) Executive MBA in Glasgow
  • Part-time (24 months) Executive MBA in our international centres ( Malaysia, Greece, Bahrain, UAE, Oman)

Strathclyde Business School

Studying an MBA degree at the University of Strathclyde you'll be learning at a leading international technological university. The University won Times Higher Education University of the Year in 2019 - the only institution to win the accolade twice. Strathclyde Business School has held triple accreditation from the three main business school accreditation bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB – since 2004. We were the first business school in Scotland to achieve triple accreditation.

The Strathclyde MBA

With over 50 years’ experience in developing the best MBA programme, Strathclyde Business School is a major innovator in the field of business and management. We were the first UK business school to offer a full-time 1-year MBA programme (1966), part-time MBA programme (1976), distance learning programme (1983), and DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) programme (1988).

This pioneering spirit brought the Strathclyde MBA into many new countries via the establishment of international centres. These centres meant, for the first time, local managers could study for a UK MBA in their own country.

Deciding to study the MBA is a considerable financial investment. You should research how you are going to finance this as early as possible. The majority of students on the full-time programme are self-funded. UK students can apply to loan schemes to fund their studies and non-UK students usually raise their own finances through bank loans or scholarships. The University's Finance Office administers instalment plans for tuition fee payments by self-funded students.


Each year, the Business School provides a range of scholarship opportunities for those students who are self-funding their MBA studies. If a you are is in receipt of funding or a scholarship from an organisation such as the British Council or a corporate body, it is unlikely that you will be eligible for financial assistance via our scholarship schemes. 


Assessment throughout the programme involves a combination of course work, workshops, examinations, group work and presentations.

Examinations are scheduled in December, March and August for Glasgow based study routes, and in August and March for study via international centres.

The University has a large student village with a variety of accommodation both on-campus and nearby. All successful applicants for the full-time programme will be sent on- campus accommodation details.
