Why choose Alliance MBS?

Ten reasons to choose Alliance Manchester Business School




We get under the skin of your organisation to help you clarify what you need and develop a programme that's right for you. We consider you a partner in a learning journey, not a customer.


Our high quality tutors are drawn from both academia and industry so you benefit from teaching that is informed by both the latest business research and experience from the coalface.




Being part of the historic University of Manchester allows us to draw on expertise from disciplines outside of business to create unique programmes that relate directly to your industry.


Alliance Manchester Business School has been providing high quality corporate education for more than 30 years. Our programmes are led by active researchers at the forefront of business thinking, who engage with business on a daily basis.

Commercial focus


Sector specific

Original thinking is meaningless if you can't apply it in the real world. Our programmes are grounded in commercial reality to give you credible, relevant, actionable results that will improve your business performance.


Our research spans all sectors and industries, as does our vast network of business contacts. This ensures that, as far as possible, you are taught by scholars and business leaders with experience, skills and knowledge relevant to your specific area.

Global reach



As well as engaging in top rated research that has impact across the world, our academics also work with international clients through our global centres, located across five continents.


Our programmes fit round you, not the other way round. We have a range of learning styles designed to suit busy professionals. We can deliver courses on or off site, using classroom, workshop or online learning (or a combination of all three) at a time that suits you.

Excellent support


Good company

We don't just offer support during your programme. Our before and after care teams ensure that everything from hotel bookings and IT access to evaluation and follow up sessions run as smoothly as your course.


Our corporate education client list includes, among many others, BP, Tesco, the NHS.
