About Strathclyde Business School
A little history
Founded in 1948, the University of Strathclyde Business School is a pioneering, internationally renowned academic organisation that shapes and develops the business minds of tomorrow. Strathclyde Business School is one of four faculties forming the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. The University was established in 1796 as 'the place of useful learning' and this remains at the forefront of our vision today.
Strathclyde Business School’s subject departments and specialist units collaborate to provide a varied programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary courses. We have established international centres in Greece, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Singapore and Malaysia, where we offer degrees such as the Strathclyde MBA.
A collaborative approach
We have firm roots in the business community in and around our home city of Glasgow which extends not only nationally but internationally. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to working alongside industry building mutually beneficial relationships which add value to both organisations and individuals alike.
International accreditation and recognition
Strathclyde Business School has held triple accreditation from the three main business school accreditation bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB – since 2004. We were the first business school in Scotland to achieve triple accreditation.
We were also the first business school in Scotland to be awarded the Small Business Charter Award, which recognises our world-leading support for scaling Scottish firms through innovation, internationalisation and leadership.
Our departments and programmes also hold internationally recognised industry accreditations such as CIMA, ICAS, and CIPD.
Strathclyde has a reputation for research excellence. Based on the REF (Research Excellence Framework) 2014 GPA scores, the Times Higher Education ranked us first in Scotland and in the top 10 business schools in the UK for its research.
