The Strathclyde MBA - in Bahrain

The Strathclyde MBA, administered locally in Bahrain, is an internationally recognised management qualification designed for talented people who seek self-development and are ambitious for further success in their career.

The flexibility, versatility and challenging learning experience offered by this programme coupled with the opportunity to develop the potential of today's talented middle-senior managers and professionals, to be corporate leaders of tomorrow, have prompted students to opt for the Strathclyde MBA. Regular local counselling sessions and intensive seminars by visiting Strathclyde lecturers enhance the flexible style of delivery of full-time, part-time and open learning elements. Successful MBA students are awarded the same Strathclyde University degree as full-time UK students.

Accreditations : The Strathclyde MBA is fully accredited by the Ministry of Education in Bahrain. It has been consistently rated as one of the top MBA's in Europe and is ranked highly both in the UK and globally, by Executive MBA (EMBA) Financial Times rankings. It is accredited by AMBA (Association of MBAs) and is the only Scottish Business school to hold EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation. All these rankings and accreditation confirm USGSB's place in the elite of schools, both UK and worldwide.
