Type of program :



  • The Strathclyde MBA - developing ambitious managers into entrepreneurial, strategic business leaders.

    The Strathclyde MBA takes experienced executives from a variety of backgrounds, and equips them with the know-how, skills and strategic orientation to sustain and scale business in today’s global businesses.

  • Strathclyde Executive MBA - International

    The Strathclyde MBA has been available outside the UK since 1988, with thousands of MBA course participants now graduated and many more currently studying in their own country.

    The Strathclyde MBA has many study routes, but we emphasise our 'one MBA' approach. The executive MBA you study via one of our international centres is exactly the same programme as you would study in Glasgow, and the academics who deliver the core elements of the programme in your country also deliver the MBA in Glasgow.

    The programme format is especially designed for busy executives who need to combine career and family commitments with the demands of MBA studies. The flexibility of the part-time approach enables participants to graduate within two years. However, study may be spread over a longer period if necessary, to a maximum of six years.

    The Strathclyde Executive MBA is offered on part-time basis through our international centres in:

    ·         Abu Dhabi and Dubai

    ·         Greece

    ·         Switzerland
