The University of Strathclyde’s full time MBA programme has risen 17 places in the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings 2016.
The programme, run by the Strathclyde Business School, has enhanced its position in the rankings, moving up the top 100 global programmes to 63.
This position continues to see Strathclyde in the top 10 of UK programmes which made it into the ranking.
Despite ever increasing competition from schools in the US, Asia, Australia, Canada and across Europe, Strathclyde’s MBA was ranked 7th in the world in the best value for money category.
This is the latest in a number of ranking successes for the Strathclyde MBA programme and, combined with the excellent research ratings and triple accreditation, confirm Strathclyde’s position as a business school of global standing within a leading international technological university.
Professor David Hillier, Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, said:
We are delighted to have such a good showing in the Financial Times ranking, particularly in a year when we celebrate 50 years of the full time MBA programme and 40 years of our part time MBA programme. Our top 20 position in Europe, together with the fact we are ranked so highly for value for money, is fantastic news. It confirms Strathclyde as a university that has real impact, not only in Scotland but throughout the world.
Strathclyde’s MBA, introduced in 1966, was the first one-year full time MBA programme in the UK and continues to lead the pack in innovative and applied learning.
