Why this programme.

You will gain a critical understanding of the nature of issues associated with enhancing a business, such as effective employee development and key drivers for innovation. The demands for increased enterprise and innovation have been well documented at national policy level and this has been reflected in dialogue from industry. You will cultivate analytical and interpretive abilities that can be integrated with the essential managerial and business skills, and gain a critical appreciation of how business theory impacts on practice. Take advantage of our individualised skills development programme, which will ensure you balance academic theory with crucial employability skills to help you maximise your potential and achieve your career goals.

Adam Smith Business School is triple accredited.

Programme structure.

You will take a series of core and optional courses and complete a substantial independent piece of work, normally in the form of a project, dealing with a topical management issue. There are also non-assessed, compulsory workshop programmes, involving participation in a series of reflective learning exercises that include induction events, strategic case analyses and debates.

Teaching will be blended; live classes delivered remotely (eg Zoom or Microsoft Teams), recorded lectures and face-to-face teaching. You will meet faculty, and with each other, both through our virtual learning environment and through face-to-face interactions. You will study on and off campus, as you do normally. The aim is to deliver as much synchronous face-to face teaching as we can, as well as for instance, classes in laboratories, seminars and guest lectures. At all times, we will put your health and safety first: this means closely following and reacting to national guidelines.

Deposits terms & conditions.

The University requires a deposit to be paid by International (beyond the EU) applicants in receipt of an offer to this programme and who require a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from the University in order that they can apply for a student visa. This is required where the programme is competitive and the deposit is required in order to demonstrate your commitment to attend the programme should you meet all the conditions of your offer.

If you are made an offer for this programme the University will write to you and request a deposit with information on how to pay your deposit and the deadline for making the deposit payment. Please note that if you are unable to pay a deposit because you are planning to fund your studies through an official financial sponsor then you should upload a copy of your scholarship application or award letter to your application by the deadline date.

The following guidelines will apply in determining whether or not a deposit will be refunded. Where the deposit is refunded, a 10% handling fee will be deducted.

Deposits WILL be refunded to applicants under the following circumstances:

Where the University is unable to offer you a place. Where the applicant has personal circumstances such as illness, bereavement or other family situations that has prevented them coming to the UK. Medical or other proof may be requested. Applicant can prove that they have applied for a visa to attend the University of Glasgow, but the VISA has been refused. The applicant must have shown ‘real intent’ to study at the University of Glasgow but has been unable to obtain their visa. Applicant does not meet his / her conditions of offer: this may be academic or language test requirements. Satisfactory evidence must be uploaded to the student’s online application to prove that they have not met the conditions of their offer (note that applicants who do not meet the language condition of their offer must show reasonable attempt to meet this, i.e. they must provide a language test which was taken after the date that the deposit was paid).

Deposits WILL NOT be refunded to applicants under the following circumstances:

Applicant decides to go to another institution. Applicant cannot be released from work to study at the University of Glasgow. Applicant does not send completed documentation as requested in the condition of the offer: this may be required in order to prove that the offer has not been met for academic or language test conditions – failure to respond to requests for this information will result in no refund. Applicant has not secured funding to attend the University of Glasgow: this may be as a result of not being successful in applications for scholarships, OR simply not having sufficient funds in bank at time of visa application. This condition will apply unless it can be proven that there are clear mitigating circumstances which have significantly changed the applicant’s position since the time of application. Applicant has requested a deferral – in this situation, if a deferral is granted, the University will retain the deposit and credit it against the applicant’s account for securing their place for the following year of entry. Please note that some highly competitive programmes do not allow applicants to defer.
