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 for its Executive MBA programme.
The BIBF has successfully offered and developed the well-established Strathclyde MBA degree since 1995. The Strathclyde MBA holds Triple Accreditation from the three main business school accreditation bodies – AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS – placing the University in the top 10 of UK Executive MBA providers and the only Scottish provider to be ranked.
Data for the ranking are collected using two online surveys, the first completed by participating schools and the second by alumni who graduated from programmes.
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 year 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 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 25 years, the Strathclyde 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.”
