What is the Benefit of Award?

All SYGL scholars will undertake Strathclyde MBA studies as a member of the full-time MBA cohort and be part of the wider SBS community.

In addition to these studies, you will also benefit from the SYGL Leadership elements – a programme of experiential learning and mentor support to help your development as a future global leader. More specifically, the SYGL Programme will equip you with essential leadership skills and competencies that will enable you to become a values led, impactful leader who can help organisations succeed in a responsible and sustainable way.

The SYGL Programme will help you to develop the capabilities required in an increasingly competitive and rapidly changing, global marketplace. In addition to the MBA studies, SYGL Scholars could benefit from one of the following opportunities:

  • attending MBA elective classes at Strathclyde’s international MBA centres around the world (to include flights/accommodation) – Europe, Middle East and Far East
  • an international exchange with another University – e.g. a strategic university partner of Strathclyde – to include flights and accommodation
  • taking part in a special research project as outlined by the Stephen Young Institute (TBC nearer the time)

In addition, all SYGL scholars will be offered coaching/mentoring support by a business leader, CEO or other senior executive of a large company with an industry focus. The choice of mentor will be informed by your industry background and your future career aspirations.
