Campus life

Our campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow. National Geographic named Glasgow as one of its 'Best of the World' destinations, while Rough Guide readers have voted Glasgow the world’s friendliest city! And Time Out has just named Glasgow in the top ten best cities in the world and we couldn't agree more.

Strathclyde is one of few institutions in the world to have achieved triple accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS (as of January 2017, 77 business schools have this status – source:

These accreditations are rigorous processes that involve assessment of numerous aspects of the school and its programmes. Typically, this involves the business school submitting an in-depth self-analysis report for scrutiny by these bodies, followed by a visiting panel and the consequent interviewing of current students, staff, alumni, corporate clients and employers. These bodies have no obligation to make an award - indeed, many business schools are unsuccessful in their application.
