Alliance Manchester Business School Scholarships

To support our MBA admissions strategy to recruit a diverse class of outstandingly talented and creative candidates from all over the world, Alliance Manchester Business School offers financial aid in the form of merit-based scholarships. Please review the different scholarships for eligibility criteria and how to apply.

Scholarships for Female Candidates

The aim of these scholarships is to support opportunities for talented female candidates to join the Alliance Manchester Business School Full-time MBA programme. Compared to full-time MBA programmes at many leading business schools, we have a good percentage of female students per class (usually around 30-35%). However, we would like to have a more equal gender balance.

Alliance MBS Scholarships

We support around 25 students in each MBA Class, through scholarships funded directly by Alliance Manchester Business School. The scholarships are awarded across different categories.

Most of the scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis and therefore candidates who apply early in the admissions rounds may have a stronger opportunity to receive an award. The scholarships are awarded as part of the admissions process, normally at the same time as an offer is made.
