We know not everyone can, or indeed wants to study full-time or by evening classes.

That's why our flexible learning route allows you to vary the pace and order of study to suit your personal circumstances. This route combines the best of full-time, part-time and open learning study.

You will carry out most of your studies off-campus, with compulsory attendance at only one or two weekend schools per year.

You will begin on an open learning basis with the option to supplement your studies through optional face-to-face classes in Glasgow.

This study method is ideal if you value face-to-face contact with tutors, visiting specialists and fellow students, but can’t attend fixed weekly classes.

How does flexible learning work?

On joining the programme, you will be given a recommended study timetable which allows you to complete the Strathclyde MBA within three years. It aims to provide you with an ideal balance of home study, attendance at weekend schools and intensive seminars in Glasgow.

Along with the timetable, we send you your first year of core learning materials and key text books, and provide full details of our on-line and tutor support programme.

If you wanted to fast-track and complete the Strathclyde MBA in less than three years, our support team can suggest an alternative study schedule. Alternatively, if you'd like to take a bit longer to complete your MBA, we can accommodate your studies up to a maximum of 6 years.


Compulsory weekend schools

There are certain subjects, such as ‘The Learning Manager’ which we feel can’t be taught at a distance. This is why we’ve incorporated two compulsory weekend schools over the duration of the entire programme. These weekend schools are included in the standard tuition fee.


You can obtain great value through working with other ambitious managers, often from a wide cross-section of industry and commerce.
