Business Administration

University of Strathclyde


On joining the programme, you’ll be given a recommended study timetable which allows you to complete the Strathclyde MBA within 3 years. It aims to provide you with an ideal balance of home study, attendance at weekend schools and intensive seminars in Glasgow. These intensive seminars require compulsory attendance and we would expect students who follow the standard three-year timetable to attend around five seminars per year.

If you wanted to fast-track and complete the Strathclyde MBA in less than 3 years, the support team can suggest an alternative study schedule. Alternatively, if you'd like to take a bit longer to complete your MBA, studies of up to a maximum of 6 years will be accommodated.

You can exit after stage 1 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 will need a copy of your degree transcript. Professional qualifications will also be considered. You must 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.
