The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - POST GRADUATE -

THE Univer­sity of Strath­clyde Busi­ness School’s full- time Mas­ter’s in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion ( MBA) pro­gramme has been ranked 63rd in the Fi­nan­cial Times Global MBA Rank­ings 2016 of top global 100 pro­grammes.

Strath­clyde’s MBA was also ranked sev­enth in the world un­der the Em­ploy­ment and Best Value for Money cat­e­gories.

Ex­ec­u­tive dean Prof David Hillier says, “We are de­lighted to have such a good show­ing in the Fi­nan­cial Times rank­ing, par­tic­u­larly this year when we cel­e­brate 50 years of run­ning our full- time MBA pro­gramme and 40 years of run­ning our part- time MBA pro­gramme.

“Our stand­ings con­firm Strath­clyde as a univer­sity that has real im­pact not only in Scot­land but through­out the world.”

The Strath­clyde Busi­ness School ( SBS) is in­ter­na­tion­ally re­spected as one of the most in­no­va­tive busi­ness schools in Europe with one of the largest aca­demic fac­ul­ties.

Strath­clyde is ac­cred­ited by the in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­it­ing bod­ies such as AMBA ( As­so­ci­a­tion of MBAs), EQUIS ( Euro­pean Qual­ity Im­prove­ment Sys­tem) and AACSB ( As­so­ci­a­tion to Ad­vance Col­le­giate Schools of Busi­ness).

SBS also has a rep­u­ta­tion for re­search ex­cel­lence. In the most re­cent Re­search As­sess­ment Ex­er­cise, it was rated sev­enth in the UK for its world- lead­ing and in­ter­na­tion­ally ex­cel­lent re­search.

The Strath­clyde MBA al­lows its par­tic­i­pants to have the flex­i­bil­ity of switch­ing be­tween dif­fer­ent modes of study, de­pend­ing on their lo­ca­tion and life­styles.

The pro­gramme is de­signed for am­bi­tious, tal­ented and well- qual­i­fied in­di­vid­u­als with solid busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence.

It is based on col­lab­o­ra­tive learn­ing where work ex­pe­ri­ence, knowl­edge, un­der­stand­ing and ap­pli­ca­ble skills are shared, worked with and re­flected on.

The in­te­grated pro­gramme com­prises com­pul­sory mod­ules sup­ported by a se­lec­tion of op­tional in- depth func­tions, al­low­ing stu­dents to tai­lor the MBA to their ca­reer as­pi­ra­tions.

Stu­dents spend time work­ing on and build­ing a cor­po­rate strat­egy. Strate­gic anal­y­sis and strate­gic think­ing are cen­tral to the pro­gramme and run through­out the mod­ules.

The pro­gramme seeks to help stu­dents de­velop ways of grap­pling with op­por­tu­ni­ties and prob­lems in the prac­tice of man­age­ment by be­com­ing re­flec­tive, open- think­ing, adap­tive learn­ers.

The team­work ap­proach fos­tered at Strath­clyde is an im­por­tant as­pect of the course and en­sures that peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds are en­cour­aged to en­gage in a di­verse work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Strath­clyde aca­demic staff have a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary out­look and build on the ex­ten­sive ex­per­tise of aca­demic staff from other busi­ness fac­ulty de­part­ments.

Its academics have par­tic­u­lar ex­per­tise in the ar­eas of strate­gic man­age­ment, lead­er­ship and sce­nario plan­ning.
