Management programmes

Why study management at the University of Glasgow?

The Adam Smith Business School offers a range of one year management MSc degrees, with a strong emphasis on research-led teaching. Named after Adam Smith, who studied and was a Professor here at The University of Glasgow, we aim to follow his legacy and create world changing research to make a positive impact on culture and society.

We have been teaching management at the University of Glasgow since the 1950s. Our postgraduate degrees aim to develop our students into strategic thinkers capable of tackling complex business challenges across a range of management functions. Our international teaching staff have a wide range of experience both inside and outside the classroom which helps ensure that students gain a wide perspective of the management field.

We have strong industry connections and host multiple guest lectures and business events throughout the year, featuring influential business people and entrepreneurs from start-ups, SMEs and global corporations. Most recently, the School has hosted talks delivered by The Big Issue, BBC and the Central Bank of Iceland.

Our postgraduate taught degrees aim to suit: those who either have a degree in business and management, with possibly some experience and want to specialise in a specific field, or those whose academic background is not in business but want to gain a broad understanding of management.
