How you can study for the MBA?
The Strathclyde University MBA in Switzerland, involves a flexible style of delivery incorporating part-time and open learning elements in a 180 credit format (90 ECTS).
Students can stay in their jobs and take their entire course in just two years. This makes our programme a viable alternative both for you, the individual, and for your company.
This part-time mode of delivery consists of a variety of learning methods:
- Face-to-face teaching by Strathclyde University lecturers
- All course materials provided by Strathclyde University
- Regular local support by Swiss Management Forum
- Self-directed learning with specially prepared core learning materials available online
- Assignments and examinations set and marked or validated by Strathclyde University lecturers
Core learning materials
Your learning experience will be enhanced and supported by our unique core learning materials.
Once you begin you will be provided with your own set – this extensive learning resource includes high quality texts, exercises, work books and additional online support.
In addition, you will receive key textbooks for the programme – essential reading, as recommended by our faculty.
Business Information Service
The Business Information Service (BIS) is a specialist service aimed at providing you with all the business information you may need as you progress through the programme.
BIS is an integral part of our offering and helps differentiate us from many other providers. All materials held – core textbooks, journals, past projects and examination papers, videos and company reports – can be identified by using the BIS catalogue, which is accessible via our online intranet service MyPlace.
BIS has a portfolio of electronic databases, many of which are also available online through the SBS intranet – Amadeus, Dow Jones and Fame, to name but a few. These databases provide the full text of journal articles and information on companies, and a ‘real-time’ Reuters terminal is also available, extending the provision of company news and financial data.
The University of Strathclyde Business School Intranet/MyPlace
MyPlace is an invaluable tool for all our course members and alumni, and will add value to your overall learning experience.
You can access tailored information on your course subjects, tutors, lectures, examinations, electives and projects, as well as being provided with information support and advice from the BIS.
It provides you with up-to-date careers information and a diary of events. Bulletin boards, in the form of a one-stop chat room, allow you to keep in touch with other course members, and email let you contact your tutors. No matter where you are based, therefore, it is easy to keep in touch.
