University of Stirling MBA

The Stirling MBA is unique in the way it focuses on the practices, processes and outcomes of managing in a range of contexts: from a large multinationals to small enterprises. There’s an emphasis on responsible leadership, sustainable strategy, creativity and change that helps inform contemporary debates about how to effectively manage limited resources with maximum impact.

The Stirling MBA covers the functional areas of business and management, including accounting and finance, marketing, economics, operations management, and human resource management. It is designed to transform capable managers into successful, significant business leaders. We underpin this approach by a significant investment in personal and professional development throughout the course.

This course will give you the confidence and resilience to respond to continually developing circumstances, the skills to build and lead a team, and the theoretical and practical knowledge to successfully manage through the pressures and challenges of the modern business environment.

Our close links with external organisations mean we can offer our MBA students regular site visits with senior executives and industry experts, many of whom are also involved in guest lectures and workshops. Students will also have the opportunity to undertake a three-month consultancy project with an external company.
