Manchester means everything...

Home to a long list of original thinkers, radicals and pioneers, Manchester is a melting pot of music, sport, commerce, diversity and more. The city's revolutionary history, exciting future and accessible location make it an unrivalled place to live and do business.

Alliance Manchester Business School sits at the heart of this entrepreneurial, visionary and creative city. Part of The University of Manchester, we celebrated our 50th anniversary with pride in 2015.

This video tells the story of the fantastic city we are part of and our vision and history. Words were provided by alumnus Tony Walsh, AKA performance poet Longfella, and visuals by local artist Barney Ibbotson, whose father was a lecturer at the School in the 1970s.

We hope you enjoy watching the video and invite you to share it across your social media channels. You can also join the conversation and tell us what Manchester means to you using #mcrmeans
