The Department of Management, Strathclyde Business School at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow


Strathclyde Business School founded in 1947, is internationally respected as one of the most innovative business schools in Europe and has one of the largest academic faculties in Europe. Strathclyde is accredited by the international accrediting bodies, AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, and is one of only 27 in the world to have such a distinction. In fact, less than 1% of business schools in the world hold triple accreditation status. In Scotland, no other business school is accredited so highly.

Strathclyde also performs consistently well in the UK government research and teaching assessments.

The School is situated in a modern award-winning building in the heart of Glasgow's city centre - the commercial capital of Scotland. Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and is one of the liveliest and most cosmopolitan destinations in Europe - a city of culture, a city of design, a city recognised as having the best shopping experience outside London.

The Strathclyde MBA is based on collaborative learning where work experience, knowledge, understanding and applicable skills are shared, worked with and reflected on. The programme is designed for ambitious, talented and well-qualified individuals with solid business experience. It comprises compulsory modules supported by a selection of optional in-depth functions, allowing students to tailor their MBA to suit their career aspirations. Students spend time working on and building a corporate strategy. Strategic analysis and strategic thinking are central to the programme and run throughout the modules. The MBA programme seeks to help students develop ways of grappling with opportunities and problems in the practice of management. The team-working approach fostered at USGSB means uniting an extraordinary range of people from different countries, backgrounds and cultures. Managing this is a challenging task for each participant.
