PROGRAMME INFORMATION

The Strathclyde International programme is structured over 4 semesters; there are 2 semesters a year and each semester is approximately 5 ½ months long.

The Strathclyde International MBA currently has two intakes, April & October .

The Strathclyde MBA is based on collaborative learning – students share work experience, knowledge, understanding and skills.

While the Strathclyde MBA draws on a number of specialist areas, we do not aim to train specialists. Rather, our purpose is to develop you in diverse areas of management.

The MBA will shape and guide you as reflective, open-thinking, adaptive learners. This is facilitated through enhanced understanding of the interplay of theory and practice in management.

The structure and content of the Strathclyde MBA reflect all these aims and are encapsulated in the diagram and explained in more detail, below.
