Course content

The Stirling MBA is unique in the way it focuses detailed attention on the practices, processes and outcomes of managing in a range of contexts: from large multinational to small enterprise, from local to global. An emphasis on Responsible Leadership, Sustainable Strategy, Creativity and Change helps inform contemporary debates about how to effectively manage limited resources with maximum impact. Classes are founded on cutting edge research and will challenge how you think about the world and how you can make a positive difference in a range of organisational settings.

Established in 1985, the Stirling MBA combines academic theory with real-life business case study analysis which will equip students with the awareness, knowledge, tools and techniques that are essential for dealing with business challenges in their parts of the world. The programme offers a critical coverage of functional areas of business and management (finance, marketing, economics and human resource management) that are essential for effective management. This forms the basis upon which advanced modules are introduced that provide a strategic analysis of key concerns that are pertinent in business today.

Course Objectives

Understanding business in terms of inclusion, environmental, cultural, social and economic sustainability is central to the Stirling MBA. These concerns and perspectives are explored in particular in the context of emerging economies with the explicit intent of providing a different business education. Throughout the world, such issues are taken increasingly seriously as a response to the current financial crisis and the Stirling MBA is the first MBA course in Scotland that is specifically designed to cater to this important agenda.
