We know the commitments of being a working manager means you need a programme that fits around your career.
Our part-time MBA (evening study) offers you the opportunity to gain a valued and well-established management qualification in a way that's best suited to your professional and personal circumstances.
To your classes and groups, you'll bring issues you deal with on a day-to-day basis along with in-depth knowledge of current practice in your industry.
This dynamic brings great value to both you and your employers as new possibilities and ways of working are opened up at both an organisational and personal level.
As the vast majority of our participants live and work in the central belt of Scotland, studying part-time at Strathclyde gives you the opportunity to get to know people from across the broad spectrum of Scottish industry. Currently the part-time route includes representatives from sectors such as:
This provides you with the unique opportunity to establish a powerful network amongst Scotland's up and coming managers.
A major advantage of the Strathclyde MBA is its flexibility and responsiveness to your needs. If you change your job or move away from the area, we’ll be happy to discuss which study options might best fit with your circumstances.
When you join the part-time programme you’ll join a group of like-minded individuals with whom you’ll progress through the programme.
You’ll attend two sessions in the evening each week from October to June. Course participants often get together at other times to work on course material.
There are also four compulsory weekend schools spread over the period of study. These focus on the skills and knowledge we consider crucial for successful managers.
We also offer a range of other study options including intensive seminars to aid your study of specific subjects and a selection of elective classes which run over the weekend.
Typically, part-timers complete their degree in around three years although some choose to accelerate the programme to complete in a little over two years.
Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The three 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.
