You have already taken the first decision \u2013
to seriously consider undertaking an MBA.
By reading this brochure you are into the
next decision phase \u2013 which business school
do I choose? Not all MBA programmes or all
Schools are the same and an increasingly
important question asked by potential
For over 200 years our University has had a
mission to be \u2018a place of useful learning\u2019:
that statement still drives USGSB, and
distinguishes us from our competitors.
We believe that we offer one of the best MBA
learning experiences in the world. A bold
statement, but one we believe we can qualify.
We are educational pioneers \u2013 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 23
business schools in the world to hold
international accreditation from the 3 industry
hallmarks of excellence \u2013AMBA,AACSB
and EQUIS. With 10 well-established
international centres in Europe, the Gulf
and SE Asia, we have a large international
student base and alumni, offering you great
potential to network both during and after
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\u2019s top managers
and corporate leaders.
In addition, the breadth and expertise of our
faculty means that we can offer more than 25
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.
Once on board, we ensure our class sizes
are made up of no more than 65 \u201370 course
members, allowing maximum interaction
with your peers and enhancing the quality
of your learning.
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.
In a brochure we can only give the most
general of information and guidance to help
with your choice. I hope that you will decide
to contact us to discuss any specific
questions you may have and I look forward to
inviting you to one of our Open Days.
