EOD; $contentSummary = <<Salinthip Kungvalchokechai, Thailand (2015-16)

"I selected the Adam Smith MBA at the University of Glasgow because of the University’s prominent reputation, triple accreditation and also because Adam Smith is an alumni. Prior to starting the MBA, I held the position of quantitative analyst at a bank. I found the staff supportive and helpful during my time studying, in terms of answering all my questions on course work, and also in terms of personal and career development. A particular aspect which I thoroughly enjoyed, and gained a lot from, was the consultancy project. It gave me a chance to work with real companies and to put theory into practice. I obtained new knowledge and enhanced my skills, which will benefit me in my future career path."

  • Consultancy Week
  • Networking
  • Strategic Foresight
  • Tier 1 (graduate Entrepreneur) Visas
  • Graduates of the Glasgow MBA will benefit from the programmes strong emphasis on real world business issues and sustainable futures. This emphasis can be seen in a range of features found on the Glasgow MBA:

    Consultancy Week

    An important part of the Glasgow MBA is the Consultancy Week - an opportunity for you to put the theories you’ve learned during the programme into action. During Consultancy Week projects, you will complete a project for a real company - answering a company’s business problem. We know that career prospects and the development of transferable skills are important factors in choosing your MBA, particularly in the current economic climate. 

    Previous participating organisations include Grant Thornton, Amazon, BAE Systems, Lynnet Leisure Group, McGhees Bakeries, as well as small to medium size enterprises and charitable organisations. Projects have involved creating business plans, reviewing training provisions, conducting market analyses, looking for ways to improve productivity, improving customer relationship management activities, operational project planning, producing a distribution analysis and resource management.

    Networking

    The School offers networking opportunities throughout the year, which attract students, alumni, staff, entrepreneurs and business leaders from the public and private sectors engaged in debates on important current issues, such as the economic downturn, innovation and technology, and managing high performance teams. As a Glasgow MBA participant, you will have free membership of AMBA. Membership of the Association of MBAs will give you access to a suite of careers, networking and knowledge services that go beyond what any one individual business school can provide. AMBA has extensive links with MBA employers and executive recruitment agencies and the career and networking resources they offer will allow you to develop highly-effective job search strategies – even in an economic downturn.

    Strategic Foresight

    Strategic Foresight is a course within the MBA programme that will help you identify and understand the key challenges that organisations face as they seek to develop sustainably in a fast changing world.

    You will be introduced to a range of intellectual and disciplinary perspectives from across the social sciences and disciplines such as engineering, environmental science and medicine.

    This course includes guest lecturers from successful organisations that will seek to answer key questions such as:

    • Is globalisation playing out as expected?
    • What degree of control do managers really have over their organisations and their people?
    • To what extent are innovation and diversity really present in contemporary organisations?
    • How is technology and innovation changing the shape and scope of organisations?
    • How should managers react to a more uncertain world?

    Previous speakers include Tom Purves, former CEO of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars; Brian McBride, Managing Director of Amazon UK; Kate Armstrong, founder of Confused.com; Jacqueline Redmond, Vice President of Natural Gas Exploration Projects, Royal Dutch Shell and Sue Kershaw, Executive Head of Programme and Contract Delivery, Olympic Development Authority.

    Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visas

    The University of Glasgow has an allocation of 20 general endorsements on an annual basis which allow international students to apply for a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa on completion of their studies.

    These visas allow non-EEA graduates to stay in the UK for at least one year (it can be extended up to two years) to develop their business ideas with a view to turning them into legitimate start-up businesses. Students must have a genuine and credible business idea and be willing to work closely with the University’s Student Enterprise programme to fully develop their proposal and formulate a robust business plan. Students are also made aware of the full range of support available to them, not only from the University but through other local business support organisations, during this time. Once the Enterprise Manager deems the student ready, their business plan is sent to be assessed by an experienced panel of business experts. The student is then required to attend a panel meeting in order to pitch their idea and answer any questions the panel members may have. If successfully endorsed at this stage they will be able to apply for the visa. Once the visa has been approved by the Home Office, the student must agree to a monitoring programme which is designed to help them develop and grow the business. They are also actively encouraged to participate in workshops and networking events organised through Student Enterprise.

    For more information contact the Careers Service and iGnite or visit the UKVI website.

    Our dedicated College of Social Sciences Employability Officer works with students to enhance their employability.

    EOD; $contentSummary = <<A range of social, networking, and guest speaker events that run through-out the year will allow you to enhance your learning experience, and help you get the most out of your time at Glasgow

    Based on the feedback we get from our students and alumni, we know that Glasgow experience is challenging, rewarding, and makes a lasting impact on their lives and careers. Our alumni tell us that they make connections that last beyond the 12 to 24 months spent at the University.

    The University and the Adam Smith Business School offer a range of social and team building activities throughout the year, helping participants build up a store of memories, experiences and skills that last a lifetime.

    Recent events include participation in the Cranfield Regatta, and a class trip to picturesque Kirknewton, where participants competed in team building challenges, as well as outdoor activities including archery, quad bikes, clay pigeon shooting and highland games.

    Social events include a tour of the Glengoyne Distillery, a barbecue at 18th century manor Gartmore House, outdoor activities at Go Country adventure park, a Burns Night event, ceilidhs, and international celebrations such as Chinese New Year and Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.

    Why this programme

    Our MBA student's experience
    • We have been teaching the MBA since 1976. Our programme is AMBA accredited, which means our MBA is internationally recognised to the highest standard.
    • We purposefully recruit a small yet diverse cohort of students. As a result you will receive dedicated 1-2-1 teaching and support whilst also being able to take the time to learn from your fellow students’ experience and skillset,
    • Classes are interactive, striking the right balance between tuition and discussion.
    • Throughout the year we host a series of social, networking and guest speaker events to enhance your learning experience and help you get the most out of your MBA.
    • We offer an MBA Professional Development and Employability Award. This is a unique initiative which includes an opportunity for you to be mentored by one of our MBA alumni.

    Programme structure

    The Glasgow MBA begins with laying the foundations of leadership through three core-learning experiences. You are then given the opportunity to specialise in finance, marketing or strategy. You may also explore additional business subjects such as business analytics, entrepreneurship, supply chain management and business sustainability. An important part of our MBA is the team-consulting project that happens towards the end of the year and is an opportunity for you to bring theory into practice and tackle real life business scenarios. The final stage of your MBA is your dissertation. You will work on this from May to September on a topic agreed between you and your supervisor.

    Core courses

    1. Decision making under uncertainty

    You will learn about the intellectual perspectives and methods that underpin the practice of making decisions essential for business management. In this course you will explore the many different disciplinary and methodological traditions that should inform effective analyses of the business world. You will also learn how informed thinking and analysis will assist you in making decisions and delivering better business outcomes.

    2. Business strategic management

    This course integrates five key business disciplines from a strategic perspective which are covered in modules. These are strategy (dynamic strategic management), HR and operations (developing your leadership through people and resources), marketing (strategic marketing), finance (financial analysis and decision-making), and business environment (global economics). You will develop the skills expected of senior managers and be capable of developing a career in any leading organisation. This learning experience ends with a week-long intense team-consulting project where you will be challenged to cover and to integrate the areas/subjects studied both in the core courses as well as in the electives.

    3. Strategic foresight

    This course is designed to broaden your perspective by encouraging you to listen and think about tangible strategic challenges, in both local and international contexts, which are presented to you by experienced business leaders, entrepreneurs, consultants and/or public servants. Guest speakers cover issues such as:

    • How is technology and innovation shaping organisations? Is it disruptive?
    • Is globalisation still alive in the twenty-first century?
    • How are millennials changing or influencing organisational cultures?
    • To what extent do local (national) procedures and regulations support or inhibit a business internationalisation agenda?
    • How do risk management and responses to uncertainty present themselves in day-to-day strategic implementation?
    • How are Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental Protection and/or Ethical Behaviours embraced and introduced during strategic discussions?

    Through guided discussions after each presentation and case-discussions complementing these topics, you will learn to develop skills to articulate previous and potential future responses to strategic challenges, and the likely effectiveness of these responses. 

    Following the core courses you will pick five optional courses, enabling you to specialise in finance, strategy or marketing. The courses on offer vary each year and are taught by a range of leading academics and practitioners, based on their research or personal experience of the corporate world. 

    Optional courses may include

    • Business scenarios for consulting
    • Business-to-business relationship management
    • Company and market failure
    • Corporate image, branding and communication
    • Credibility & networks - selling yourself and your organisation
    • Entrepreneurial finance
    • International financial analysis
    • International strategy for multinational enterprise
    • Project leadership and control
    • The role of technology in innovative organisations
    • Strategic human resource management
    • Supply and logistics management.

    Application fee

    A fee of £25 per application must be paid by all applicants to this programme. The application fee will be requested when you apply online and it can be paid using your credit or debit bank card.

    Terms and conditions

    The application fee is non-refundable so it is important that you check any specific entry requirements for the programme. If you are applying with qualifications from outside the UK then you should check the postgraduate taught entry requirements for your country: see International students: In your country

    Applicants who are sponsored may have the application fee waived at the point of applying online. However if the sponsorship status changes before the student registers with the University and the student is self-funding the University reserves the right to invoice the student for the initial application fee.

    Please note: applications for SFC funded places are open for entry in September 2016.
