University Information

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.

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. Our University’s mission for over 200 years has been to be ‘the place of useful learning’; an ethos which still drives the business school and distinguishes us from our competitors.

SBS has a long and proud history of being an innovative business school – and part of a socially progressive and leading technological University of Strathclyde – with ‘useful learning’ at its heart. The School was named Business School of the Year in the Times Higher Education 2016 awards announced in November. The award was made in recognition of the Business School’s innovative and entrepreneurial attitude and its overall ‘outstanding’ performance.

Internationally Recognised

The business school is triple accredited by the three international accrediting bodies, AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB – and it was one of the first to gain this accolade. EQUIS and AACSB assess the business school as a whole while AMBA accredits the MBA programmes. With recent accreditation from all three bodies for the maximum five year period, Strathclyde is delighted to continue to be one of the small number, out of thousands of business schools around the world, to be triple accredited.

In addition to triple accreditation, Strathclyde Business School is Europe’s first university faculty to be awarded a licence to operate an MBA programme in the United Arab Emirates.

Our MBA and Masters programmes are consistently ranked among the best in the world and we continue to introduce innovative business programmes to suit the demands of an evolving business world and we’ve extended out academic reach with centres in Europe, Asia and the Gulf.

We have specialist MSc programmes in the following subject areas:

Strategy & Organisation
Accounting & Finance
Work, Employment & Organisation
Management Science

Scotland is one of Europe’s most unique destinations, famed for its history, castles, scenery, lively cities, warm hospitality and its traditions. Glasgow is Scotland’s biggest city but its position and excellent transport links mean all other parts of the country are easy and quick to access. A stunning city in its own right, Glasgow is just minutes from some of the most beautiful parts of the country – the rugged west coast, Loch Lomond and Burns country are all on our doorstep.
