There are seven academic departments within the school: Accounting and Finance, Economics, Human Resource Management, Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Organisation, Management Science and Marketing. Each department offers postgraduate, undergraduate and research programmes. The business school also offers faculty-wide programmes, both research and taught – the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Executive Masters in Hospitality and Tourism Leadership, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), and Research Methodology in Business & Management.

The business school has several research units: Strathclyde Institute for Operations Management (a joint venture between staff from SBS and the Faculty of Engineering), Fraser of Allander Institute (located in the Department of Economics but operating in a cross-disciplinary manner), Strathclyde International Business Unit (located in the Department Strategy and Organisation but also working cross-functionally) and Scottish Employment Research Centre (located in the Department of Human Resource Management).


Choose your university and course

Before you choose

  • Talk to a careers/guidance adviser.
  • Visit to get more information and compare the courses and universities that interest you. When you apply, you can select up to five choices.
  • Do a keyword search on UCAS – if there’s a specific course title or course combination you want to do, type it directly into the UCAS course finder engine.
  • Do your research carefully – check out university websites, as well as UCAS, so you get a real feel for the place.
  • Consider the course content and not just its title – English at one university is not the same as English at another university.
    Check the entry requirements – will you need specific subjects (including GCSEs) or work experience? Are you on track to achieve the grades you need?
  • Attend university open days – see our handy checklist for suggestions on things you could ask about. If you’re considering Anglia Ruskin, we’d love to see you at one of our undergraduate Open Days.
  • Get advice from friends, family and school staff – but don’t forget the ultimate choice is yours.
  • Try to get to a UCAS HE Fair where you can pick up prospectuses from lots of different universities and speak with their representatives.
  • Have you chosen courses with a range of entry requirements? Try to maximise your chances by making your ‘Insurance’ option a course with lower grade requirements than your ‘Firm’ choice.
  • Think about a range of universities with different entry requirements.
  • Above all you should be comfortable with your choices: it’s all about finding the ‘best fit’ for you.
