One of the world’s leading university ranking groups, QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), has today ranked Alliance Manchester Business School’s Global MBA as 5th in the world.
QS released the fifth edition of their annual table which ranks the world’s top 40 Distance Online MBA programmes, showcasing the School amongst the best in the world. Alliance MBS features as 2nd in the UK and 3rd in Europe.
The Manchester Part-time MBA offers as much face-to-face teaching as most full-time MBAs – and the same qualification – yet students only study on-campus three times a year. Students study core areas of business and management, and can specialise in their areas of choice through electives and project work.
Kelley School of Business at Indiana University - our partners on the Kelley-Manchester Global MBA - were ranked 3rd globally.
Nunzio Quacquarelli, CEO at QS, said: “The QS distance online MBA ranking is unique in evaluating opportunities for interaction with class-mates and professors as well as looking at the reputation with employers. The technology behind online learning continues to advance improving the learner experience. But data on completion rates and employer feedback reinforces the view that the blended model including some physical meet ups is most effective.”
The full ranking can be viewed on the QS website.

Low-cost oil producers will start to question why there are rationing supplies and this will have “huge implications” for the oil market, said Spencer Dale, Group Chief Economist at BP. Addressing the annual BP lecture at Alliance MBS, Dale – a former chief economist at the Bank of England – said in no other industry could you have a country such as Saudi Arabia, where it costs just $10 to produce a barrel of oil, operating in the same market as a country like Canada where it costs $30 to $40.

Despite the ‘compelling” business case for having more women on company boards the move towards gender equality in the boardroom has stalled. Our Vital Topics panel debate on ‘Diversity at the top’ heard that there remained a complex and often contradictory array of reasons as to why more women did not hold senior management positions.
