The Strathclyde MBA is 50

Widely acknowledged for its innovation in business and management education, Strathclyde Business School (SBS) has demonstrated pioneering developments across its undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Our enterprising spirit has taken the Strathclyde MBA into many new countries via the establishment of eight international centres. Since we first introduced a one year full time MBA programme to the UK in 1966, we have continued to innovate and update our MBA offering to reflect current business practice. Facilities for the business school have recently undergone a £23.2 million transformation to locate departments in a single business quarter and provide state-of-the-art accommodation for staff and students

Signing up for the Strathclyde MBA from the UAE center it's one of the best decisions in my career progression. The whole program has given me a unique experience to meet my personal development goals and to progress well in my profession. Also understanding of the professors and administration staff to accommodate each individual student's requirement and to help them out to successfully complete the program is noteworthy. Strathclyde's accreditation from the 3 MBA Accrediting Bodies - AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS and other accolades the program has received ever since its launch in 1966 speaks for itself!
