Why this course?

Strathclyde Business School has been delivering the Strathclyde MBA on an executive (part-time) basis via our international centres since 1988, with Malaysia being one or our inaugural MBA centres.

A pioneering and experienced MBA provider, we update and review our MBA to reflect the current business environment. Strathclyde’s MBA is strategy-focused and blends theoretical and practical business learning. Our MBA is flexible, and responsive to the needs of working individuals. Our wide choice of electives can help you personalise the programme to suit your business interests. These elective classes can be studied in Oman, as well as in Glasgow or at our other international centres, to give you an international learning and networking experience.

The MBA project gives you an opportunity to examine in depth a managerial, organisational or environmental issue of your choice over an extended period of time. Our Executive MBA allows you to study whilst continuing with your career and allows you to implement your learning into work.

What is the programme format?

The programme is designed for busy executives who need to combine career and family commitments with the demands of MBA studies. The flexibility of the part-time approach enables most participants to graduate within two years. However, study may be spread over a longer period if necessary, to a maximum of six years.

Typically, your MBA studies will be made up of:

  • monthly intensive seminars delivered by Strathclyde academics at our centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • regular tutorials with our locally based counsellors
  • off-campus learning and support facilitated by our virtual learning environment

You’ll work in an international environment alongside like-minded classmates and be part of our long established network of students and alumni from our international postgraduate centres.

A highlight of the Strathclyde calendar is the annual MBA Summer School which takes place in Glasgow, over May and June. The summer school is open to all study routes of the MBA who have reached the elective stage of the programme. It's a great way to accelerate your studies, and network with a large group of international colleagues.

There are two intakes per year for the Strathclyde MBA in Malaysia in October and April.

Accreditation

Strathclyde Business School is triple accredited by the three international accreditation bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one of which we're proud.

Learning & teaching

Learning methods include:

  • face-to-face teaching by Strathclyde University staff in Malaysia
  • regular local counselling support
  • home/private study with specially prepared core learning materials
  • assignments and examinations set, marked or validated by Strathclyde University staff

Assessment

Assessment throughout the programme involves a combination of:

  • course work
  • workshops
  • examinations
  • group work
  • presentations

As far as possible, coursework will be related to your work environment. The examinations and assignments are set, marked and validated by the University of Strathclyde academic staff. They're identical to and assessed on the same basis as students undertaking the programme in the UK.

Examinations

There are two examination schedules each year:

  • August
  • March

All examinations are available at each sitting and you choose which is most appropriate for you.

Why this course?

This unique course, running since 2008 – the first of its kind in Europe – meets the needs of graduate students who want to contribute to environmental improvement and the circular economy, and learn how to identify and evaluate business opportunities. It’s a collaboration between:

  • Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
  • Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship

The course has contributions from six other departments: 

  • Law School 
  • Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management 
  • Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering 
  • Economics 
  • Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering 
  • Management Science 

Throughout the course, you’ll develop skills that'll allow you to launch new ventures, strategies, products, and technologies that address society's environmental and natural resource problems.

Although this course is offered by an engineering department, it is unique as it accepts students from all backgrounds (social sciences, arts, engineering, law, chemistry, maths, physics, geology, biology and business). Students are able to select class options from a wide range of subjects to suit their background.

The course is suitable for anyone who'd like to refocus their career on environmental or sustainable entrepreneurship.

Opportunity to do MSc dissertation linked to Malawi

The Department has strong links with Malawi. Professor Bob Kalin takes students to Malawi every year for their dissertation/project. This is mainly offered to the students in the MSc in Hydrogeology but there is the potential for students from this MSc to also take part.

You’ll study

You'll follow a curriculum of four core modules and a wide range of optional modules. Each module is taught for two to three hours per week over eight to 11 weeks. Following successful completion of the taught component, you’ll undertake a MSc dissertation from June to August.

Work placement

The Client-Based Environmental Entrepreneurship in Practice class has been developed for this MSc. This class has no formal teaching and instead sees you carry out a four month project of interest to a client, while at the same contributing to ecopreneurship in practice. 

In addition, as part of the class “Independent Study in Collaboration with Industry” you can apply to work with industry projects (such as the Carbon Clinic in collaboration with Carbon Trust).

Strathclyde Enterprise Pathway

You'll benefit from our innovative enterprise related initiative, Enterprise Pathway, which provides you with the opportunity to develop and enhance your transferable skills and learn business basics from real life entrepreneurs.

Facilities

Our £6 million state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are well-equipped with high-technological instrumentation and available space to investigate:

  • environmental & molecular microbiology
  • environmental chemistry
  • analytical chemistry
  • geomechanics & soil quality
  • structural design & material science

Discover more about our facilities.

Living Laboratory for Sustainability

You'll benefit from this innovative initiative which encourages students and researchers to carry out projects that aim to work towards the enhancement of the university’s sustainability. Check out some of our students’ projects and dissertations.

Flexible learning

Home students can also choose to study through Flexible Learning. This is initially a non-graduating route.

Why this course?

We know not everyone can, or indeed wants to study full-time or by evening classes.

That's why our flexible learning route allows you to vary the pace and order of study to suit your personal circumstances. This route combines the best of full-time, part-time and open learning study.

You’ll carry out most of your studies off-campus, with compulsory attendance at only one or two weekend schools per year.

You’ll begin on an open learning basis with the option to supplement your studies through optional face-to-face classes in Glasgow.

This study method is ideal if you value face-to-face contact with tutors, visiting specialists and fellow students, but can’t attend fixed weekly classes.

How does flexible learning work?

On joining the programme, you’ll be given a recommended study timetable which allows you to complete the Strathclyde MBA within 3 years. It aims to provide you with an ideal balance of home study, attendance at weekend schools and intensive seminars in Glasgow.

Along with the timetable, we send you your first year of core learning materials and key text books, and provide full details of our on-line and tutor support programme.

If you wanted to fast-track and complete the Strathclyde MBA in less than 3 years, our support team can suggest an alternative study schedule. Alternatively, if you'd like to take a bit longer to complete your MBA, we can accommodate your studies up to a maximum of 6 years.

Compulsory weekend schools

There are certain subjects, such as “the Learning Manager” which we feel can’t be taught at a distance. This is why we’ve incorporated two compulsory weekend schools over the duration of the entire programme. These weekend schools are included in the standard tuition fee.

You can obtain great value through working with other ambitious managers, often from a wide cross-section of industry and commerce.

Optional intensive seminars

To make the most of your MBA experience we strongly recommend that you take advantage of the optional intensive face-to-face seminars in Glasgow. The cost of these are included in the tuition fees.

These sessions provide a valuable opportunity for in-depth study of a chosen subject area, to meet fellow students and benefit from shared experiences. In addition, intensive seminars are key to accelerating your progress through the programme.

Our suggested timetable will give you a firm idea of commitments well in advance. This allows you to plan your year ahead at work and home.

When can I join the programme?

In theory, you can start flexible learning study whenever you like. However, we do have an annual schedule of induction classes, weekend schools and intensive seminars. We recommend that you start close to an induction period. These normally take place around April and October each year.

We do our best to schedule induction classes, weekend schools and intensive seminars together throughout the year. This ensures that you have every opportunity to maximise your stay in Glasgow.

Weekend schools run for all study routes of the Strathclyde MBA. If you can’t make a specified date, then you have the opportunity to attend the next weekend school at a later date.

Intensive seminars are only scheduled for our flexible learning course members. If you’re unable to attend, we recommend that you complete the subject area using core learning materials rather than delay your progress.

How much time do I need to commit to studying?

If you attend all possible weekend schools and intensive seminars on offer in any one year, you should expect to be away from the office for a total of around 15 days.

You can also expect to spend around a minimum of 15 hours a week in addition to weekend school and optional seminar attendance.

Accreditation

Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The 3 international accrediting bodies are:

  • The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
  • The European Quality Improvement System
  • The Association of MBAs

To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one we're proud of.

Association of Masters of Business Administration (AMBA)

You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.

Assessment

Flexible learning has the same assessment criteria as our other study methods. Assessment throughout the programme involves a combination of:

  • course work
  • workshops
  • examinations
  • group work
  • presentations

Examinations

There are three examination schedules each year:

  • December
  • March
  • August

It’s also possible for our flexible learning course members to take examinations out of Glasgow.

You may be able to take exams at one of our international centres or a local British Council office, British Consulate or a University.

The venue will normally charge a room hire plus invigilation fee (this will vary) and you’ll also be asked to pay £40 per exam payable to the University of Strathclyde.

Careers

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.

That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.

We work with you to complement your own proactive job search efforts. We'll also help you use your own career background and strengths to help with your next career move.

You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.

You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.

Why this course?

We know the commitments of being a working manager means you need a programme that fits around your career.

Our part-time MBA (evening study) offers you the opportunity to gain a valued and well-established management qualification in a way that's best suited to your professional and personal circumstances.

Benefits of the part-time course

To your classes and groups, you'll bring issues you deal with on a day-to-day basis along with in-depth knowledge of current practice in your industry.

This dynamic brings great value to both you and your employers as new possibilities and ways of working are opened up at both an organisational and personal level.

As the vast majority of our participants live and work in the central belt of Scotland, studying part-time at Strathclyde gives you the opportunity to get to know people from across the broad spectrum of Scottish industry. Currently the part-time route includes representatives from sectors such as:

  • financial services
  • oil
  • pharmaceutical
  • IT
  • retail
  • public and not-for-profit organisations.

This provides you with the unique opportunity to establish a powerful network amongst Scotland's up and coming managers.

A major advantage of the Strathclyde MBA is its flexibility and responsiveness to your needs. If you change your job or move away from the area, we’ll be happy to discuss which study options might best fit with your circumstances.

How does the part-time programme work?

When you join the part-time programme you’ll join a group of like-minded individuals with whom you’ll progress through the programme.

You’ll attend two sessions in the evening each week from October to June. Course participants often get together at other times to work on course material.

There are also four compulsory weekend schools spread over the period of study. These focus on the skills and knowledge we consider crucial for successful managers.

We also offer a range of other study options including intensive seminars to aid your study of specific subjects and a selection of elective classes which run over the weekend.

Typically, part-timers complete their degree in around three years although some choose to accelerate the programme to complete in a little over two years.

Accreditation

Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The three international accrediting bodies are:

Association of Masters of Business Administration (AMBA)

You’re eligible to join AMBA after enrolment on an MBA course.

Learning & teaching

The Strathclyde MBA is not just a business programme. It’s a stimulating, challenging and potentially life-changing experience, which will make you question, re-think and re-evaluate how you do business.

The Strathclyde MBA is highly experiential and based on collaborative learning. You share your varied work experiences, knowledge, understanding and skills.

The MBA will shape and guide you as a reflective, open thinking, adaptive learner.

Assessment

Assessment throughout the programme involves a combination of:

  • course work
  • workshops
  • examinations
  • group work
  • presentations

Examinations

There are three examination schedules each year:

Why this course?

The School of Psychological Sciences & Health, in collaboration with the globally renowned Strathclyde Business School is offering a unique new Masters programme. The distinctive nature of the programme lies in its flexible online mode of delivery.

Successful completion of this course, accredited by the British Psychological Society, will provide students with either no background, or an unaccredited background in psychology, the route to gain Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

It also provides opportunities to develop specialist knowledge in modules provided for the programme in Psychology for Business.

The programme will aim to provide you with:

  • a broad-based conceptual knowledge of the core domains of psychology, covering both historical and contemporary issues
  • an understanding of the relevance and applications of psychology to real life, particularly business contexts
  • the opportunity to undertake a supervised empirical research project
  • various intellectual and practical skills that are attractive to graduate employers

What you’ll study

Class content and student participation in our new Masters in Psychology with a specialisation in Business will be delivered entirely online across a wide range of formats.

The course features 180 credits of study in total, available either full time over 12 months or part time over two years.

Full-time students will complete the equivalent of 60 credits taught classes in semesters 1 and 2. You'll begin working on the empirical project in semester 2, with the majority of the empirical project work being completed over the summer months.

Part-time students will complete 90 credits by the end of Year 1, and the remaining 90 credits in Year 2. The course includes 80 credits of the core domains of Psychology, 40 credits of specialist modules delivered by organisational psychologists in Strathclyde Business School, and a 60 credit empirical research project.

Facilities

The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university. The University’s commitment to ‘useful learning’ underpins our approach to research, learning, and teaching. This will be evidenced in our approach to teaching and learning where students will be supported in their exploration of the practical and policy impacts of psychological research.

Approaching an entirely new subject should be stimulating, not daunting. At every step of the way we have designed our Masters course with the student new to the topic in mind. Carefully scripted and prepared learning tasks and objectives will incrementally build your knowledge, structure your learning, and build your confidence in each topic we cover, empowering you to achieve in a supportive environment.

Each module in the Masters in Psychology with a specialisation in Business is centred round a suite of studio-based lectures, which are studied online. While module subjects will be supplemented by further assigned individual reading and reflection, opportunities for student engagement will be frequent, varied, stimulating and challenging.

Student-centred activities may feature individual or group-based online activities, quizzes, discussion boards, wiki creation verbal reports and podcasts. You'll have the opportunity participate in online and webcam-based tutorial meetings throughout the course, interacting with their fellow students and lecturers.

Assessment

Our approach to assessment in the course is varied, with different approaches being adopted both within and across modules.

Assessment will be through a mixture of course work, for example individual essays or reports, or perhaps a collaborative writing task with other students, or in some cases an online quiz or a verbal presentation. Additionally some modules will feature class exams. 

At every step of the way we have designed our Masters course to support student learning, and you'll be carefully guided through each assessment activity, with continuous feedback on your progress.

Careers

A degree in psychology, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), is the first step towards the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the BPS, and is a prerequisite for entry onto professional postgraduate psychology training programmes (eg MSc Organisational Psychology, Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, MSc Educational Psychology). A number of graduates will use their accredited degree to pursue future professional training, following gaining relevant experience. An accredited Masters in Psychology is a mark of quality, meaning the course and institution has achieved the high standards of quality in its provision that the British Psychological Society demands. Psychology graduates have a lot of options open to them. Many go on to further study or to careers in teaching, human resource management, social work, as well as many other areas.

The knowledge, understanding, and skills acquired by psychology graduates are highly valued by employers in the graduate job market. The psychology degree is unique amongst social science disciplines in the extent to which it fosters both a scientific approach to enquiry (including the ability to employ evidence-based reasoning, and the ability to collect and interpret both quantitative and qualitative data) and the writing and research skills most prevalent in humanities and/or other social science disciplines. It is anticipated that a proportion of graduates of this programme will enter the graduate job market, in private, public, or third sectors.
