|Prof. Susan Hart, Dean
Univ. of Strathclyde Business School
For over 200 years our University (...) has been an educational pioneer – and the Strathclyde MBA, the first one year MBA programme - has been continually evolving, improving and striving to reflect current practice since 1966.
We are one of only 57 business schools in the world to hold international accreditation from the 3 industry
hallmarks of excellence – AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS.
We consistently demonstrate excellence in the quality of our teaching, research and knowledge exchange, and our drive and motivation to continue to improve is boundless.
This has been acknowledged by the Times Higher Education Award 2012 with the UK University of the Year award given to the University of Strathclyde.
We operate a substantial international operation with 9 well-established international centres in Europe, the Gulf and SE Asia. Consequently, we have a large international student base and alumni, offering you great potential to network both during and after your MBA studies.
For over 20 years the Business School has been running offshore programmes in Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong. It was one of the first business schools to undertake offshore activities of this nature, and in 1993 received the Queen’s Award for Exports.
While many traditional MBA programmes consist of a set of unlinked single discipline classes, we recognise that the job of a senior manager involves making decisions across a range of functions. The Strathclyde MBA has therefore adopted a holistic integrated approach to management education which aims to develop executive potential by giving a broad understanding of business and management and a depth of vision essential to tomorrow’s top managers and corporate leaders.
In addition, the breadth and expertise of our faculty means that we can offer a wide range of elective subjects, ensuring that you have the best choice of specialist study areas.
Unlike many other MBAs, we ensure that all of our course members are experienced business people. Therefore your colleagues will truly understand the dynamics of the work-place, and be able to contribute more readily to sessions.
All in all, we aim for the Strathclyde MBA to be a challenging, stimulating and enjoyable experience, which will leave you a more confident, rounded manager.
