Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Strathclyde Business School has been offering postgraduate programmes at international centres since 1988. We have offered an MBA programme in Malaysia since 1988 and Malaysia is one of our eight international centres around the world.

Our MBA programme is designed for busy executives who need to combine career and family commitments with the demands of MBA studies. Wherever you study, our MBA programme has the same content and structure and our faculty members travel to our international centres to run intensive seminars, with continuous support for our students provided by our centre administrators. [In-country teaching by Strathclyde faculty is subject to prevailing Covid-19 guidelines.] Students have the opportunity to take electives in summer school classes in Glasgow, subject to availability.

Strathclyde Business School is triple accredited by the three international accrediting bodies, AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. AMBA specifically accredits MBA programmes. All our teaching is supported by the strong research carried out by our faculty. The Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014 rated Strathclyde Business School in the top 10 schools in the UK for the quality and breadth of its research and was also rated highly for research impact, a measure of how the research impacts practice in business.
