**WHY THIS PROGRAMME**

We have been teaching the MBA since 1976. Our programme is AMBA accredited, which means our MBA is internationally recognised to the highest standard.

We purposefully recruit a small yet diverse cohort of students. As a result you will receive dedicated 1-2-1 teaching and support whilst also being able to take the time to learn from your fellow students’ experience and skillset.

Classes are interactive, striking the right balance between tuition and discussion.

Throughout the year we host a series of social, networking and guest speaker events to enhance your learning experience and help you get the most out of your MBA.

We offer an MBA Professional Development and Employability Award. This is a unique initiative which includes an opportunity for you to be mentored by one of our MBA alumni.

**Adam Smith Business School is triple accredited**

**PROGRAMME STRUCTURE**

The Glasgow MBA begins with laying the foundations of leadership through three core-learning experiences. You are then given the opportunity to specialise in finance, marketing or strategy. You may also explore additional business subjects such as business analytics, entrepreneurship, supply chain management and business sustainability. An important part of our MBA is the team-consulting project that happens towards the end of the year and is an opportunity for you to bring theory into practice and tackle real life business scenarios. The final stage of your MBA is your dissertation. You will work on this from May to September on a topic agreed between you and your supervisor.

**Core courses**
**Decision making under uncertainty**
You will learn about the intellectual perspectives and methods that underpin the practice of making decisions essential for business management.

**Business strategic management**
This section of the programme covers five key business disciplines from a strategic perspective which is covered in five individual courses. These are strategy (Strategic management), HR and operations (Managing resources), marketing (Marketing management), Finance (Financial information and analysis), and business environment (Global economy).

**Strategic foresight**
This course is designed to broaden your perspective by encouraging you to listen and think about tangible strategic challenges, in both local and international contexts, which are presented to you by experienced business leaders, entrepreneurs, consultants and/or public servants.

**Optional courses**
Following the core courses you will pick five optional courses, enabling you to specialise in finance, strategy or marketing.

**Professional Development and Employability Award**

We know that MBA students’ top priority upon graduating is employability. We run an innovative co-curricular, timetabled Professional Development and Employability Award to enhance your career.

**Programme alteration or discontinuation**
The University of Glasgow endeavours to run all programmes as advertised. In exceptional circumstances, however, the University may withdraw or alter a programme. For more information, please see: Student contract.
