Business Schools, like other organisations, need to move with the times. Business education began at the University of Glasgow, a leading Russell Group institution, in the 1950s, initially on a part-time basis for practising managers in the local community. Business education is now fully embedded in the University's teaching and research portfolio.
The University of Glasgow Business School draws upon the academic resources of four departments, namely: Accounting and Finance; Economic and Social History; Economics; and Management; all of which, as does the University, pride themselves in their pursuit of research lead academic excellence.
The School is the focal point for the design, delivery and development of post-graduate taught education in business and related fields. The degree portfolio includes a suite of masters programmes designed for recent graduates and post-experience programmes leading towards the award of the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Finance (MFin) or MSc International Banking and Finance. All programmes reflect the research lead culture of the contributing departments and fully engage in the practice. In addition to our taught programmes, we have developed, in full collaboration with the Department of Management, an Executive Doctoral Programme based upon reflective practice.
We aim to make your learning experience rewarding in terms of both personal and career development and hope to provide a welcoming environment based on our commitment to the philosophy that education can be both challenging and enjoyable.
The Mission of the University of Glasgow Business School is to identify, develop and sustain a distinctive excellence in business management education and research by:
- The research assessment exercise
- The quality assurance ratings
- International and National accreditation
- International and National esteem indicators
- Standing with both the Faculty and University
- Income generation and innovative re-investment
