Earliest start date
The Strathclyde MBA programme has been available outside the UK since 1988. Over 2000 participants have now graduated, and over 1500 students are currently studying the programme in their own country. This success is due to the unique delivery structure developed with the local partner, incorporating elements of full-time, part-time and open learning study methods. The Strathclyde MBA Programme has been available in the UAE since 1995.
The study route to your part-time MBA is flexible with most participants taking between two to two and a half years to complete. Each year is divided into two semesters starting in October and April. Students are provided with a range of text books, course workbooks, core learning materials, and online access to the Strathclyde University library along with physical and online access to the HCT libraries.
In terms of teaching, for each subject students attend a two day intensive seminar delivered by academics from Strathclyde University and scheduled over weekends. These seminars are mainly based around the core learning elements of each subject but also contextualised to cover the business environment specific to the region. Additionally, throughout the programme, students attend a range of workshops and simulations to enhance and develop their managerial skills and competencies.
