Strathclyde Business School’s Executive MBA programme has been recognised as being one of the best in Europe. The move follows the publication of The Economist’s debut global rankings of Executive MBAs on July 19.
Strathclyde Business School’s International MBA was ranked in the top 5 of the UK’s business schools 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 International 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.
Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, Professor 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 education.
“We are continually reviewing our MBA programmes so that our courses remain relevant to those people who choose to continue their personal development in the world of business.
“Through close collaboration with our partners we have the flexibility to adapt programmes where necessary to meet the needs of our wide range of international candidates.”
The Economist collected data using two web-based questionnaires: one was 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.
