Glasgow Caledonian New York College (GCNYC) plays a pivotal role in GCU’s global network of teaching and research, giving students unique access to opportunities to fellow students, GCU staff, international thought leaders and stakeholders, for educational and professional development.
Our master’s programs use research based approaches to serve the growing demands for transparent and responsible companies that balance profitability and sustainability. The programs combine classroom learning with applied research that brings together theory and practice in a final dissertation. This capstone project is often practice based, investigating a real-life question in the student’s own work environment or another company.
Located at GCNYC, the Fair Fashion Center (FFC) facilitates the incorporation of sustainable practices into fashion, proving the business case for sustainability by turning global issues into industry opportunities. The experiences and knowledge developed from the market based solutions delivered by the FFC are integrated across our degrees and allow our students for hands on experience with the fashion industry throughout their study.
We’re located in three of the world’s great cities – Glasgow, London and New York – providing ample case studies to investigate, as well as incredibly rich resources for research. We also partner with the Caledonian College of Engineering in Oman, the Grameen Healthcare Trust and Grameen Caledonian College of Nursing in Bangladesh, and the University of Johannesburg in South Africa.
GCU has received international recognition as a center of excellence in education and research, including the European Commission’s HR Excellence in Research Award for our commitment to the career management and skills development of researchers.
