Co-create your programme

At Alliance MBS, we recognise that what works for one organisation does not necessarily work for another. Many businesses have specific issues to address and attending one of our management development programmes is not the right route.

This is where our tailored training solutions come in - courses that are co-created with clients and draw on relevant expertise from across the school and wider University to address specific organisational development requirements

As consultants and advisors to private, public and third sector organisations across the world, our experts know that each company has its own unique culture, values, ambitions and concerns. We work closely with private and public sector organisations to understand your business, clarify your requirements and design the right programme for you. This approach has led to highly successful mutually beneficial partnerships with clients including BP, Al Futtaim and the NHS, among many others.

The process

When we create a bespoke course, we work closely with our clients to get to the heart of your business. By leading with your issues and challenges and not our academic content, we make sure that we address the root cause, not just the symptoms. Before we develop a proposal, we get a thorough understanding from you of how your organisation works and what you’re trying to achieve. We then work together to find the best way to apply our knowledge and experience to help boost your business performance.

Everything is designed in close collaboration with you and delivered by experts with up-to-date knowledge of your industry or sector. We see our relationship with our clients as a collaborative learning journey, using our expertise to create a programme that exactly meets your staff development needs.

Our programmes are designed to reflect delegates’ varied learning styles and academic backgrounds. We have developed a range of approaches for delivering our courses – from interactive workshops and student-led seminars to our own virtual learning environment – and choose the most appropriate methods to ensure your delegates and your organisation get the most from your Alliance MBS experience.
