The triple-accredited Executive MBA with its 9 international centres has offered world-class education in Switzerland since 1996. The latest Economist and Financial Times Ranking have also reflected this for EMBAs by ranking Strathclyde Business School No.2 in Switzerland in 2013.

Strathclyde is one of the largest business schools of its kind in Europe, with over 200 academic staff and more than 3,000 full-time students. The University of Strathclyde received its royal charter in 1964. In 1786 our founder, John Anderson, left instructions in his will that a new higher education institution be established as "a place of useful learning".

This ethos holds true today and still drives Strathclyde Business School, underpinning the industrially and commercially relevant research and teaching being undertaken throughout the university.

Our academics have particular expertise in the broad area of strategic management and undertake a wide range of consultancy activities, both in the UK and internationally. With a large international student base and alumni, we offer you great potential to network both during and after your MBA studies.

The breadth and expertise of our faculty means that we can offer more than 25 elective subjects, ensuring that you have the best choice of specialist study areas. These electives can either be taken during summer school in Glasgow, at one of our nine international centres or at our partner universities EM Lyon and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The programme has a very flexible delivery to ensure that business executives can stay in their jobs and still obtain an excellent education. Our top Strathclyde professors...
