Strathclyde Business School’s Executive MBA programme was recognised this Friday in The Economist’s debut publication of Executive MBA global rankings. Strathclyde ranked in the top 5 UK and in the top 10 European business schools. Overall, Strathclyde’s Executive MBA was placed 28th worldwide.
Strathclyde is one of the few business schools on the list with campuses in the UAE, and has offered the face-to-face taught part-time MBA in this country for 18 years. In addition to triple international accreditation, the Strathclyde MBA is also accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education.
These first Economist Executive MBA rankings reflect the success of Strathclyde’s unique international focus. In addition to its flexible learning and Glasgow-based evening MBA programmes, managers can study the Strathclyde MBA on a part-time (executive) basis in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Switzerland, Greece, Oman, Bahrain, Malaysia, Singapore, or Hong Kong.
Currently, around 1200 students study their MBA in this way. Strathclyde Business School offers the acclaimed part-time MBA at more international centres than any other business school in the world.
The Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, Susan Hart, commented: “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 was filled out by business schools and included 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 included feedback on pre and post MBA salaries.
Over 60 SBS students and alumni participated from across the school’s nine international MBA centres.
