If you choose to study your MBA full-time in Glasgow over 12 months, you can expect a stimulating and challenging experience.
Your year with us is an opportunity to stretch yourself to the maximum, to be challenged and inspired by the faculty and your colleagues and to make lasting friendships around the globe.
At the end of the year you’ll have gained skills and abilities to help you realise your career aspirations. Studying full-time allows you the opportunity to focus on the course rather than trying to juggle study and work.
As the full time MBA route of study is normally undertaken by those changing careers or considering starting up their own business, the programme has a more formal, integrated careers development element.
As we require a minimum of three years' work experience (the average is over nine years) you’ll find your colleagues have a wealth of experience which is a powerful resource that will prove invaluable.
Students come from a wide variety of industries, public service and voluntary agencies. Typically this has included accounting and financial managers, consultants, engineers, IT specialists, and marketing managers but also some people with very different perspectives, such as medical professionals, civil servants and military officers.
The class has a maximum intake of around 60 course members from a variety of countries. Our strong belief is by limiting the class size, you’ll interact more with academic staff and class-mates, making the overall MBA experience highly participative and engaging.
Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The 3 international accrediting bodies are:
To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one we're proud of.
You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.

The Strathclyde MBA is highly experiential and based on collaborative learning. You share your varied work experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills.
The MBA will shape and guide you as a reflective, open thinking, adaptive learner.

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.
That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.
We work with you to compliment your own proactive job search efforts. We help use your own particular career background and strengths to help with your next career move.
You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.
You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.
Our core professional development programme is delivered in four modules throughout the year. Each lasts for a week and are held in October, November, January and February. The programme includes:
