Business Administration

University of Strathclyde


If you choose to study your MBA full-time in Glasgow over 12 months, you can expect a stimulating and challenging experience.

Your year with the University is an opportunity to stretch yourself to the maximum, to be challenged and inspired by the faculty and your colleagues and to make lasting friendships around the globe.

At the end of the year you’ll have gained skills and abilities to help you realise your career aspirations. Studying full-time allows you the opportunity to focus on the course rather than trying to juggle study and work.

The full-time course is 12 months - 10 months are spent taking part in classes, group-work and personal development processes, and two months completing the MBA project. It allows you to take time to embark on life planning and in many cases reinventing or re-planning your career. There are a number of classes designed to identify your personal strengths and weaknesses. The course is intensive and relies heavily on teamwork throughout – encouraging cooperation rather than competition.

You can exit after 9 months with PgDip Business Administration.

Entry Requirements

For entry to the MBA programme you must: hold a degree from a UK university, or equivalent academic qualification from a comparable non-UK institution. If you studied for your undergraduate degree at a non-UK institution we'll need a copy of your degree transcript. Professional qualifications will also be considered; be at least 24 years of age; and, have a minimum of three years' full-time postgraduate experience where the management of people and resources has played a significant role.

Entry at Diploma level may be offered to applicants who do not hold sufficient recognised degree level qualifications, but who: hold non-degree/professional qualifications plus at least five years' varied management experience; have no formal qualifications but extensive and varied management experience (10 or more years); or are exceptional candidates over the age of 24 with a minimum of two years' managerial experience. This is available only to candidates applying to routes other than full-time.
