For overseas clients

Established in 1965, Alliance MBS has an enviable worldwide reputation and an unrivalled global footprint, with more international centres than any other business school in the UK.

We have an established history in working closely with overseas clients who want to experience a programme delivered in the UK where you can learn about western business practice and experience studying at a European educational institution - whether as an individual joining us for our summer schools or as an international organisation designing a bespoke programme for a number of delegates in the UK to meet your specific needs and objectives.

If you're a recent graduate or manager looking to prepare for an MBA or postgraduate programme in the UK or to understand more how to do business in Europe, take a look at our summer school programmes:

Delegates have attended our summer schools from, amongst others, Europe, South America, the Middle East, Japan, Korea, China, Thailand and Turkey, making them an invaluable opportunity to network with peers from a mix of cultures and backgrounds.

The process

Since our earliest China programmes in 1986, we’ve been working closely with overseas client organisations to deliver the ideal learning solution for your business needs through our customised programmes. With speakers fluent in languages such as Mandarin, Chinese, French and Spanish amongst our dedicated team, we can effectively guide and advise you through our activities together, from your first point of contact to the end of your project. Programmes combine academic study to understand business principles and skills with company visits to experience the real –life of how organisations do business in the UK.

We’ve delivered programmes for delegates from China, African nations and the Middle East. Everything is taught directly in relation to the organisation’s needs and ways of working so you get the results you want. We build in time for social events too so that our delegates get a rounded experience as well as the business knowledge.
