At the Glasgow School for Business and Society, we recognise the contribution a postgraduate qualification can make to your career prospects.

As such, all of our degree courses are designed in consultation with global industry partners and the majority are accredited by professional bodies, which assures employers of the excellence of your qualification and skills.

All of our courses have a work-related curriculum meaning you’ll experience real-world learning and have opportunities to engage with organisations and industry leaders in your field. You’ll be taught by experts with commercial and industry backgrounds who bring cutting-edge research to the classroom.

My course has provided me with key skills such as how to communicate e€ectively, problem solve and how to motivate myself to succeed in my career. Graduating with an industry-recognised CIPD qualification has made my CV stand out from the crowd and will help advance my career as well as boost my earning potential for many years to come.
