Celebrating Original Thinkers


As part our 50th anniversary we are celebrating the North West’s most Original Thinkers – people who challenged the norms, took risks and changed the world. This is what Manchester is about, and this spirit of innovation is fundamental to Manchester Business School.

Which Original Thinkers from Manchester and the North West of England do you most admire? Email your nomination(s) today or on social media using #mbs50.

Your nomination could have be born and bred in the region, or they could be closely linked to the North West through pioneering work. On 28th May we’ll announce 50 finalists to vote for on our 50th anniversary microsite. Don’t forget to come back and vote!

Need some inspiration? Hear some of academics’ nominations on YouTube or visit this website to view a good summary – from scientists and philanthropists to artists and inventors.

Join us to celebrate the city and region we are part of.
