SBS’s Executive MBA named one of the UK’s top 5

Posted on: July 22nd, 2013 by admin No Comments

Strathclyde Business School’s Executive MBA programme has been recognised as being one of the best in Europe. The move follows the publication today (Friday 19 July) of the Economist’s debut global rankings of Executive MBAs.

Strathclyde Business School’s MBA was ranked in the UK’s business schools top 5 and in the European top 10. Overall Strathclyde was placed 28th out of 62 international business schools.

In addition to its Glasgow based part-time(evening) and flexible learning MBA programmes,  managers can study the MBA on a part time (executive) basis in one of the school’s nine international centres based in UAE, Switzerland, Greece, Oman, Bahrain or SE Asia.  Currently, around 1200 students study their MBA in this way.

Commenting the Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, Susan Hart, said: “It’s a great honour to be included in the inaugural rankings and to be placed so highly is testament to the hard work which we put into delivering first-rate business education. We aim to ensure that our courses remain relevant to those people who choose to continue their personal development in the world of business.”

The Economist collected data using two web-based questionnaires: one filled out by business schools and included more quantitative measures, such as details of students and faculty, the number of overseas assignments required and statistics on alumni. The second questionnaire was completed by current students and alumni from the schools’ last three graduating classes, and including feedback on pre and post MBA salaries.

Over 60 SBS students and alumni participated, from across the school’s nine international MBA centres.
