Strathclyde Business School, University of Strathclyde
Founded in 1948, the University of Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is a pioneering, internationally renowned academic organisation that shapes and develops the business minds of tomorrow.
Strathclyde Business School is one of four faculties forming the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. The University was established in 1796 as 'the place of useful learning' and this remains at the forefront of our vision today for Strathclyde to be a leading international technological university that makes a positive difference to the lives of its students, to society and to the world.
We are a triple accredited business school: the first business school in Scotland to hold this accolade, and one of only 88 in the world (July 2018, MBA Today), to be triple accredited, holding accreditation from the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. We have held all three accreditations since 2004.
More recently, we were awarded the Small Business Charter Gold Award – joining an elite group of institutions at the forefront of entrepreneurship in the UK. SBS is now one of only five universities in the UK to have the Gold Award, recognising its world-leading support for scaling Scottish firms through innovation, internationalisation and leadership.
In addition to our international accreditation, Strathclyde has a reputation for research excellence. Based on the REF (Research Excellence Framework) 2014 GPA scores, the Times Higher Education ranked us first in Scotland and in the top 10 business schools in the UK for its research. Times Higher Education also ranked us 3rd in the UK for Impact of our business research, based on the REF’s GPA scores, a measure of how the research impacts on practise in business.
We have firm roots in the business community in and around our home city of Glasgow which extends not only nationally but internationally. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to working alongside industry building mutually beneficial relationships which add value to both organisations and individuals alike.
The Department of Economics specialises in applied policy relevant academic research and teaching. All of our outputs are focussed upon providing practical solutions to real world problems. We are home to the highly respected Fraser of Allander Institute - which has for over 40 years been a crucial part of the economic policy landscape in Scotland. We are a key Partner in the work of the cross-University Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures
