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. Being named after Adam Smith, who studied and was a Professor here at Glasgow, we aim to follow his legacy and create world changing research to make a positive impact on culture and society.

We’ve been teaching management at the University of Glasgow since the 1950s. Our postgraduate degrees aim to develop you into a strategic thinker to tackle complex business challenges across different management functions: marketing, human resources and international business. Our international teaching staff have a wide range of experience both inside and outside the classroom which helps ensure that you 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 all: 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 general understanding of management.
