Strathclyde Business School
Founded in 1948, the University of Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is a pioneering, internationally renowned academic organisation that shapes and develops the business minds of tomorrow.
Strathclyde Business School is one of four faculties forming the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, The University was established in 1796 as 'the place of useful learning' and this remains at the forefront of our vision today for Strathclyde to be a leading international technological university that makes a positive difference to the lives of its students, to society and to the world.
Strathclyde Business School was named UK Business School of the Year in the most recent Times Higher Education Awards (2016), and was singled out for our outstanding overall performance and innovative and entrepreneurial outlook.
We are a triple accredited business school with accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business (AACSB), EQUIS, the European quality assurance scheme, and the Association of MBAs (AMBA). We were the first business school in Scotland to hold this accolade, and one of only 74 in the world (2016), to be triple accredited. Our departments and programmes also hold internationally recognised industry accreditations:
- Department of Human Resource Management is a CIPD approved centre
- Department of Accounting and Finance accredited by CIMA and ICAS
- Department of Marketing is accredited by Institute of Export, Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Market Research Society
- Our Hospitality & Tourism degrees are accredited by the Institute of Hospitality
We have been awarded the Small Business Charter Gold Award – joining an elite group of institutions at the forefront of entrepreneurship in the UK. SBS is now one of only five universities in the UK to have the Gold Award, recognising its world-leading support for scaling Scottish firms through innovation, internationalisation and leadership.
In addition to our international accreditation, Strathclyde has a reputation for research excellence. It has been rated in the top 10 business schools in the UK for its research - and first in Scotland - in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) which measures the quality and breadth of research. The REF indicated that the business school’s research was particularly strong in terms of Impact, a measure of how its research impacts on practise in business.
SBS has established international centres in Greece, Switzerland, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Singapore and Malaysia. With around 200 academic staff and more than 3000 full-time and part-time students (undergraduate and postgraduate), Strathclyde Business School’s subject departments and specialist units collaborate to provide a dynamic, fully-rounded and varied programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary courses.
We have firm roots in the business community in and around our home city of Glasgow which extends not only nationally but internationally. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to working alongside industry building mutually beneficial relationships which add value to both organisations and individuals alike.
