About us

Managing to make a difference ....

At Stirling Management School we believe that management matters. Management is a process involved in all forms of human activity; from an individual managing their own time, to a large corporation managing their finances. 

We make a difference by supporting a sustainable future for business and society.

Our students are provided with opportunities to develop leadership skills, vital for effective and resilient managers, in business and organisations across the world.

Our graduates are highly sought-after among employers looking for professionals with contemporary management knowledge and problem solving skills. With internationally recognised and accredited courses, Stirling Management School takes a very modern, career-focused approach to higher education delivery. This approach leads to nine out of 10 of our graduates finding relevant employment within six months of completing their degree.

Our relationship with students does not stop at graduation: we maintain and build links with our extensive network of alumni.

Our philosophy, that effective management can make a positive difference, means we get to the heart of what is involved in the management and organisation of a diverse range of activities.  Our research, teaching and knowledge exchange activities create significant and lasting impact on people’s everyday lives, through our involvement with, and influence on, large and small businesses, public policy, and local and global communities. This is evidenced by our position as 14th in the UK Business School rankings for research impact. In everything we do we endeavour to create insightful analysis that leads to effective intervention.
