The University of Strathclyde is now Scotland’s third largest university, and one of the largest in the UK, with a world-wide reputation for its teaching and research. We comprise five faculties – Arts and Social Studies, Business, Education, Engineering and Science – and have a total student population of around 14,000.
Founded in 1948, Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is an enterprising, pioneering institution of global standing. We engage business minds, and pursue impact on the stakeholders we serve.
It is one of the largest business schools of its kind in Europe, with around 200 academic staff and more than 3000 full-time students (undergraduate and postgraduate). The subject departments and specialist units collaborate to provide a dynamic, fully-rounded and varied programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary postgraduate courses
Triple accredited by the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. Strathclyde Business School was recently re-accredited by all three organisations for the maximum five year period, and continues to be one of the small number, out of thousands of business schools around the world, to be triple accredited. Strathclyde’s masters programmes continue to be globally ranked by publications such as the Economist and Financial Times.
SBS also has a reputation for research excellence. It has been rated in the top 10 business schools in the UK for its research - and first in Scotland - in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) which measures the quality and breadth of research (December 2014). The REF indicated that the business school’s research was particularly strong in terms of Impact, a measure of how its research impacts on practise in business.

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:
Dubai and Abu Dhabi
