Joseph is just one of our current Part-Time MBA students about to enter into the Second Year of the programme – here he shares his three favourite things about the programme so far:

It’s only been 10 months since I started my journey on the part-time MBA course at Strathclyde Business School, but I’ve already experienced so much: more than sixty evening classes, 6 exams, 6 group assignments, 2 weekend schools, and more presentations and homework than I care to remember!

Reflecting back on these experiences I find that the course has already made a real difference to my life, particularly in the following three key areas:

  1. Without it I would never have set up my own business –;
  2. I have made a huge number of new lasting friendships; and
  3. I realise now just how much free time I actually had available before starting the course!

Yes of course the workload has been challenging and yes there have been times where I have felt under pressure due to work, family, coursework, assignments, and exam preparations all competing for what little spare time I had available, but all I have to say to prospective new students is ‘go for it, you won’t regret it!’

I am happy to help answer any queries from prospective new students – feel free to reach out to me directly at if I can help.
