Strathclyde Business School is Scotland’s premier business school, an enterprising, pioneering institution of global standing within a leading international technological university.
SBS offered the first one year, part time and distance learning MBAs in the UK. It is Europe’s first university faculty to be awarded a licence to operate in the UAE. Over the last 30 years we have established international centres around the world.
SBS holds triple accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, and has done so since 2004. We were the first business school in Scotland to achieve triple accreditation. Strathclyde is also the first business school in Scotland, and one of just 5 in the UK, to be awarded the Small Business Charter Gold Award. This award recognises our world-leading support for scaling Scottish firms through innovation, internationalism and leadership.
Our departments and programmes also hold internationally recognised industry accreditations. Our departments are accredited by expert professional bodies such as CIMA, ICAS, CIPD, Institute of Export, Chartered Institute of Marketing, the Market Research Society, the Institute of Hospitality, and the Energy Institute.
We have eight well-established centres in the Middle East, SE Asia and Europe plus international partnerships across the world.
Strathclyde Business School has a reputation for research excellence. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (2014), SBS was rated 1st in Scotland and in the top 10 of business schools in the UK.
