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 intensive study in Glasgow)
  • Part-time (evening and weekend classes in Glasgow over 2-3 years)
  • Flexible learning (combination of off-campus, self-paced study, interspersed with workshops and seminars: 3-5 years)
  • Executive MBA – International (study your MBA locally in Singapore, Malaysia, Switzerland, Greece, Bahrain, UAE, Oman)

Flexibility of study choice

We offer you the flexibility of transferring between various study routes, and to undertake units or modules from different routes. For example, part time students can catch up with missed work via flexible learning seminars or by taking part in selected modules of the full-time programme. Full-time MBA students who miss out on elements of the programme for whatever reason can also take advantage of flexible learning seminars

Strathclyde Business School

Strathclyde Business School (SBS) was founded in 1948 and is a pioneering, internationally renowned academic organisation with a reputation for research excellence. One of four faculties forming the University of Strathclyde, SBS is a triple accredited business school (AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB) and was the first business school in Scotland to achieve this accolade in 2004. The Business School is home to seven subject departments and a number of specialist centres, all of which collaborate to provide a dynamic, fully-rounded and varied programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary courses.

With 50 years' experience in developing the best MBA programme, SBS is a major innovator in the field of business and management. SBS was the first UK business school to offer a full-time 1-year MBA programme (1966), part-time MBA programme (1976), distance learning programme (1983), 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. As a result, there are approximately 1,500 course members currently enrolled on the Strathclyde MBA around the world.
