Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is an innovative and entrepreneurial organisation defining and influencing business and management education as part of a leading international technological university…

We are inspired by the University’s founder John Anderson whose vision was for Strathclyde to be ‘the place of useful learning’.

Strathclyde Business School has demonstrated pioneering developments across its undergraduate and postgraduate teaching since it launched the first one year full time MBA programme in the UK in 1966.

Since then, our enterprising spirit has taken our highly regarded MBA into many new countries via the establishment of eight international centres and we have continued to innovate and update our MBA offering to reflect current business practice.

This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of our full time MBA and the 40th anniversary of our part-time MBA programme. These milestones coincide with the recent £23.2 million transformation of the business school to locate departments in a single business quarter and provide state-of-the-art accommodation for staff and students.

We are also a triple accredited business school – one of only 74 in the world (2016) – to be accredited by AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS, the three international accrediting bodies.

Students who choose our MBA programme can opt for full-time, part-time or flexible learning study options. Our full time programme is studied over 12 months in Glasgow amongst a group of international peers and involves nine months of participation in classes, group work and personal development processes and three months for the MBA project.

Our part-time programme is ideal for anyone who wants to fit the MBA programme around their career and this option is offered through evening class twice weekly with four compulsory weekend schools spread over the period of study. Typically, part timers complete their degree in around three years.

A major strength of the part time route is that course members can investigate issues at work through the various classes and put what they learn on the MBA into practice immediately. We also offer a flexible learning option which allows individuals to direct the pace of their own studies while providing the level of support that an internationally recognised school can offer.

The Flexible Learning MBA offers a balance between self-study and group interaction, and we encourage peer interaction and group learning through workshops and seminars which gives those on the programme the opportunity to meet with their peers.
