About Strathclyde Business School

Glass facade of Strathclyde Business School building with reflections and "University of Strathclyde" lettering.

Founded in 1948, Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is an enterprising, pioneering institution of global standing. We engage business minds, and pursue impact on the stakeholders we serve.

Our University’s mission for over 200 years has been to be ‘the place of useful learning’; an ethos which still drives the business school and distinguishes us from our competitors.

Strathclyde is a triple accredited business school: one of only 66 in the world (2014) and the only business school in Scotland to be triple accredited, holding accreditation from the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. In addition to triple accreditation, Strathclyde Business School is Europe’s first university faculty to be awarded a licence to operate an MBA programme in the United Arab Emirates.

Postgraduate study

Our MBA and Masters programmes are consistently ranked among the best in the world and with a decade of triple accreditation perhaps that’s no great surprise. As Scotland’s number one business school, we understand the importance of global thinking. Education pioneers since 1966 with our MBA, we continue to introduce innovative business programmes to suit the demands of an evolving business world and we’ve extended out academic reach with centres in Europe, Asia and the Gulf.


Strathclyde Business School has been rated first in Scotland and in the top 10 business schools in the UK for its research in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) which measures the quality and breadth of research (December 18).

The REF 2014 is a Government-led benchmarking exercise measuring the quality of research in higher education institutions and these latest results show Strathclyde Business School as being strong overall in its research but the REF also indicates the business school’s research is particularly robust in terms of Impact.
