If you choose to study your MBA full-time in Glasgow over 12 months, you can expect a stimulating and challenging experience. Your year with us is an opportunity to stretch yourself to the maximum, to be challenged and inspired by the faculty and your colleagues and to make lasting friendships around the globe.

At the end of the year you will have gained skills and abilities to help you realise your career aspirations. Studying full-time allows you the opportunity to focus on the course rather than trying to juggle study and work.

Special features

  • The full-time course is 12 months - 10 months are spent taking part in classes, group-work and personal development processes, and two months completing the MBA project
  • It allows you to take time to embark on life planning and in many cases reinventing or re-planning your career
  • There are a number of classes designed to identify your personal strengths and weaknesses
  • The course is intensive and relies heavily on teamwork throughout – encouraging cooperation rather than competition

As the full time MBA route of study is normally undertaken by those changing careers or considering starting up their own business, the programme has a more formal, integrated careers development element.


Benefits of the full-time programme

As we require a minimum of three years’ work experience (the average is over nine years) you will find your colleagues have a wealth of experience which is a powerful resource that will prove invaluable.

Students come from a wide variety of industries, public service and voluntary agencies. Typically this has included accounting and financial managers, consultants, engineers, IT specialists, and marketing managers but also some people with very different perspectives, such as medical professionals, civil servants and military officers.

The class has a maximum intake of around 60 course members from a variety of countries. Our strong belief is by limiting the class size, you’ll interact more with academic staff and class-mates, making the overall MBA experience highly participative and engaging.
