Course Description

The Part-time MBA A Scottish networking experience Immediate Benefits In addition to the full-time route, the generic alternative is the 'Learn as you Earn' (LAYE) method, which accounts for 90% of our participants. LAYE means that participants study while still working in a full-time job and are therefore still earning. All of the LAYE methods have the added advantage of enabling participants to relate their learning directly to their work place. This means that both participants and employers obtain immediate benefits from improved performance at work. LAYE methods also have the advantage of spreading fee payments over a longer period. Many such participants are sponsored by their employers. Since only a few practising managers can leave the business world for full-time study, SBS has designed the part-time course so that you can gain the benefits of an MBA while still working. If you are considering combining full-time employment with part-time study you will want to know how realistic it is to combine the demands of work, study and personal commitments. SBS offers you the chance to gain a valued and well-established management qualification in a way best suited to your professional and personal circumstances. The programme combines the benefits of learning with immediate practical application in your working environment. Choosing to study on the part-time MBA is a significant step especially at a time when career and lifestyles may change. A major advantage of the Strathclyde MBA is its flexibility and responsiveness to your needs. If you change you job or move away from the area, it is still possible to complete the degree through transfer to the Flexible Learning route. If your progress is delayed or disrupted, or you are prevented from completing the course, it is possible to substitute credits from the Flexible Learning route. After 25 years of running the part-time Strathclyde MBA in Glasgow, the range of companies represented on the programme is impressive - from Scottish based blue-chips to SME's, and private to public sector organisations. How does part-time (evening study) work? When you join the Strathclyde MBA. you will attend evening sessions twice weekly (alternating each study year from Monday and Wednesdays to Tuesdays and Thursdays). You will be part of a single group of like-minded individuals, progressing through each of the three years at SBS. Classes run from October to June each year, with holiday breaks at Christmas, Easter and the summer. During your three years of study you will also attend approximately 4 weekend-schools. Some will last three days (usually Friday to Sunday) and others two days (usually Friday and Saturday). For those keen to complete their studies under 3 years, then it is entirely possible to complete the Strathclyde MBA in 2 - 2.5 years. The fast-track option will involve project work being undertaken over the summer period, and attendance at full-time summer schools. Teaching Sessions The bi-weekly evening classes take place at SBS between 1830 and 2130. Students normally attend the two sessions each week and perhaps another study session for group work. The sessions are designed to be as participative as possible. When you consider the accumulated wealth of knowledge on a part-time MBA programme it would seem sensible to take advantage of it. During evening sessions teaching staff encourage both lively and stimulating debate. As a member of the programme you will be expected to participate in these debates - after all, it is your opportunity to test your own learning. So, is the Part-Time route right for me? Strathclyde's MBA is a challenging and stimulating programme - as one of the best available, it couldn't be anything else. As well as the two evening sessions per week you should be prepared for a significant amount of study time. In total you should expect to put in about 15 hours per week. A lot of the work you will be asked to undertake will be in small study groups and
