BIBF’s Flagship Strathclyde MBA ranked in Financial Times’ Top 100 Executive MBA rankings
Tuesday, November 2, 2021
The long-standing partner of the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF), Strathclyde Business School has been ranked in the annual Financial Times’ top 100 ranking of Executive MBA programmes.
The well-established Strathclyde MBA has been provided in Bahrain since 1995, and its rank was based on the responses from 2018 graduates of the programme. The Strathclyde MBA holds Triple Accreditation from the three Global accrediting bodies – AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS – placing the University in the top 10 of UK Executive MBA and the only Scottish one to be ranked.
Data for the ranking were collected using two online surveys, the first completed by participating schools and the second by alumni who graduated from programmes in 2018.
Professor David Hillier, Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, said, “We are delighted with this most recent ranking of our Executive MBA programme by the Financial Times.
“This follows on from our ranking earlier in the ‘Economist Which MBA?’ ranking where our Executive MBA was – as with the FT – ranked in the top 10 in the UK. These rankings are testament to the standard of our MBA programme and how our graduates, both in Bahrain and at our other International centres around the world, benefit both personally and in terms of their career from doing a Strathclyde MBA.”
Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh, BIBF Director extended his warmest congratulations to the team of Strathclyde on this outstanding achievement, stating, “The BIBF continuously strives to provide internationally-recognised education that matches local and regional business standards, and for the past 26 years, the Strathclyde Executive MBA has been the executive programme of choice for business leaders in Bahrain.
Dr. Al Shaikh also added, “We are proud of this long-standing partnership with University of Strathclyde to provide the opportunity for business professionals to receive one of the most highly sought-after MBAs in the world.”
