MBA - Master of Business Administration
University of Strathclyde
Distance / Online
Why this course?
We know not everyone can, or indeed wants to study full-time or by evening classes. That's why our flexible learning route allows you to vary the pace and order of study to suit your personal circumstances. This route combines the best of full-time, part-time and self-study.
This study method is ideal if you value face-to-face contact with tutors, visiting specialists and fellow students, but can’t attend fixed weekly classes.
We hold "triple accreditation". The three international accrediting bodies are:
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
European Quality Improvement System
Association of MBAs
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.
Association of Masters of Business Administration (AMBA)
You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.
How does flexible learning work?
On joining the programme you’ll be given a recommended study timetable which would allow you to complete the Strathclyde MBA within three years. It aims to provide you with an ideal balance of home study and attendance at intensive seminars delivered here in Glasgow. These intensive seminars require compulsory attendance and we would expect our students who follow the standard three-year timetable to attend around five seminars per year.
Our suggested timetable will give you a firm idea of commitments well in advance, which will allow you to plan your year ahead at work and home.
If you wanted to fast-track and complete the Strathclyde MBA in less than three years, our MBA team can suggest an alternative study schedule. Alternatively, if you'd like to take a longer to complete your MBA, we can accommodate your studies up to a maximum of six years.
Prior to the induction weekend you will also receive access to the online course materials and key eBooks required for your first year classes.
We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.
That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.
We work with you to compliment your own proactive job search efforts. We help use your own particular career background and strengths to help with your next career move.
You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.
You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.
