Social Responsibility at Alliance MBS

Social responsibility is one of the University’s three core strategic goals in the Manchester 2020 strategy, sitting equally alongside our commitments to world-class research, and outstanding learning and student experience.

The commitment of Alliance MBS to social responsibility addresses the fundamental question ‘what are we good for?’  The view at the University of Manchester is that Universities are primarily for public benefit and should be able to deliver that benefit in a way that has a positive impact on people’s lives. Alliance MBS endorses that fully as is committed to this agenda as it permeates our research, our teaching and learning, and our engagement with our external partners.

The School contributes to all five of the University’s strategic priorities – Research with Impact; Responsible Graduates; Engaging our Communities; Responsible Processes; and Environmental Sustainability. Our research is world leading in the areas of equality & diversity, health and environmental sustainability. Social responsibility is embedded throughout our programmes at all levels.  Whilst we are an international business school, we ensure that we engage with our local communities to improve the lives of those closest to us.

We partner with Whalley Range and Levenshulme High Schools to boost pupils’ employability and support their development by giving them an early insight into the world of business. The three-year partnership, through Business in the Community, sees us working with students, parents and teachers from both schools under the ‘Business Class’ initiative. Our staff and students help the teenagers to understand what career opportunities are available, and the qualifications and expertise needed to access them.
