Strathclyde Business School is committed to providing a unique and innovative collaborative approach to solving some of the challenging problems facing business, government and the third sector. Our driving ethos is ‘the place of useful learning,’ and as a global business school, our mission is to research, educate and exchange knowledge for the benefit of society. To achieve this, our academics are engaged in consultancy and research, advising governments, public bodies and businesses - from SMEs to large global corporates.
The composition of Strathclyde Business School and its position within the University of Strathclyde provides a faculty with a unique perspective to impact the challenging multidisciplinary problems facing society.
Strathclyde Business School academics have expertise in a wide range of business disciplines including accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management science, entrepreneurship and innovation, human resource management, strategy and leadership.
To bridge the gap between high-quality research and meaningful practice, Strathclyde Business School is structured around academic departments working on research and externally-facing centres that deliver translational impact. These centres act as touchpoints for organisations and businesses to reach out and access world-leading knowledge around management practice.
Specifically, the research in Strathclyde Business School is aligned with real world challenges such as sustainability, resilience and digital transformation. We aim to:
- support businesses accelerate the maturity and commercial viability of technology and science to ensure value is exploited;
- shift focus from research to customer or services; and
- translate R&D activity into organisational development, value propositions, business models, leadership, governance and operations.
The Business School actively contributes to two of Scotland's innovation districts – the Glasgow City Innovation District and the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District. This means the Business School is embedded in a rich ecosystem that builds upon the triple helix model of industry, government and academia coming together on innovation.
