Visa changes and how our MBA can help achieve your career goals

Alliance Manchester Business School's MBA offers significant advantages for students seeking an international career. No other MBA programme can provide as many opportunities to broaden your work experience:

During the MBA you will engage in 900 hours of client-facing project work. This adds value to your CV while you study and makes you more interesting as a potential hire, for employers in the UK and elsewhere:

  • Four projects; three working directly with real organisations
  • Not-for-Profit Project (live)
  • Mergers and Acquisitions Project (simulated)
  • Commercial Business Project (live)
  • The International Business Project goes beyond ordinary live projects; this is a genuine piece of professional consultancy investigating complex international strategic opportunities and challenges. Clients expect real results. Prove yourself in a high-pressure, high risk, real business situation. Demonstrate to senior managers and directors how your talent can benefit them. On the 12 month pathway the project may not be international.

In addition you can:

  • Secure an Internship (up to 3 months) providing essential professional experience in a senior role, adding significant value to your CV and proving your ability to a potential UK sponsor or international company. On the 12 month pathway the option of an internship needs to be discussed with our recruitment team.
  • Work with our MBA Career Management Team and benefit from its strong industry links with UK and global recruiters

After our MBA programme you could:

  • work with a company in the UK
  • start your own company
  • work in another country or region
  • work in your home country for an international company
