The businesses school, which is one of only 55 in the world to be triple accredited, holding accreditation from the international bodies, AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS, has previously worked with a range of private companies and organisations including William Grant & Sons and Babcock International to design bespoke business education programmes which aim to develop leadership and management skills amongst employees.
Attendees will be able to experience a series of sample lectures, take part in Q & A sessions with teaching staff and discuss the individual postgraduate programmes with departmental representatives who will be available throughout the day at Strathclyde Business School’s Cathedral Street building.
There will also be an opportunity to “get engaged with SBS”, with staff on hand to discuss the Centre for Corporate Connections, a dedicated unit which coordinates industry and academic partnerships within the university and its alumni network to enable and deliver new, innovative research, teaching, consulting and knowledge exchange.
Professor Susan Hart, Dean of Strathclyde Business School said: “By investing in staff through education, companies will see the benefits immediately. Employees are attracted to businesses who offer career development and as a result, by offering executive education, businesses can attract and retain the best candidates.
“Executive education programmes also develop the skills needed to create the leaders businesses need to grow. As a leading business school, we pride ourselves on delivering one of the best business education programmes in Europe
“Working with organisations ranging from multinationals to SME’s in the last five years we have gained unrivalled experience in the development of bespoke executive education programs and have seen the courses we provide go from strength to strength.
“We hope this open day will demonstrate the benefits of executive education to more businesses, showing them how, by working together, we can create tailor made programmes which get the best out of employees.”
