The Strathclyde MBA is not just a business programme, it's a stimulating, challenging, life-changing experience, which will make you question, re-think and re-evaluate how you do business.

The Strathclyde MBA is highly experiential and based on collaborative learning. Students share their varied work experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills.

The MBA will shape and guide you as a reflective, open- thinking, adaptive learner. This is facilitated through enhanced understanding of the interplay of theory and practice in management. In particular it:

  • provides the skills required for progression to higher level policy-forming positions
  • allows you to make successful career transitions
  • facilitates the move from technical specialism to general management
  • polishes the skills and enhances the abilities of people working for themselves or about to set up in business
