Course Description

The Full-time MBA an international experience If you choose to study your Strathclyde MBA on a full-time basis you can expect a stimulating experience. Your year with us will be an opportunity to stretch yourself to the limit, be challenged by the faculty and your colleagues, and make lasting friendships across the world. At the end of the year you will emerge a different person, confident in the knowledge that you have gained the skills and abilities to realise your career aspirations. Benefits of the Full-time programme Studying for the Full-time programme allows you to focus on the course without trying to juggle study and work. Since we require a minimum of 3 years work experience (the average is over 9 years) you will find that the group has a wealth of experience which is a very powerful resource and will prove invaluable during the year. Your prior experience helps you to relate what you are learning back to a real working context. The class normally has about 40 - 50 students from over 15 countries - which allows enormous opportunity for gaining an international perspective on what you are learning. Special characteristics of the Full-time programme The full-time course takes 12 months to complete - nine months attending classes and 3 months completing the MBA project. The course is intensive and relies heavily on teamwork throughout. Co-operation rather than competition is encouraged amongst participants. Undertaking the course full time allows you to take stock of yourself, take time to undertake life planning and in many cases reinvent or re-plan your career. In the very early stages of the course there are a number of classes designed to allow you to identify where your personal strengths and weaknesses lie - this is a critical stage as it ensures that during your MBA you use your strengths to full advantage and also develop your perceived weaker areas. Is the full-time route right for me ? The majority of individuals undertaking the Strathclyde MBA by full-time study are most definitely looking for a life-changing experience. Whilst career progression is still the main reason why most of our course members undertake the Strathclyde MBA, often individuals are looking for a complete change in direction. This could be fulfilling your entrepreneurial aspirations to become your own boss, or it could involve side-stepping onto a completely different career ladder. The full-time study route is very intensive - with classes most of the working day and group work in the evenings - however, the Strathclyde MBA also allows you plenty opportunity to critically reflect on what you are learning and how you can apply such knowledge in your future career. If you are prepared to take a year out from your current career, uproot your home and family life to Glasgow, and accept the biggest challenge of your working life, then we look forward to meeting you.
