The Manchester MBA

Challenge yourself. Change direction. Transform your career.

Whether you’re looking to study full-time or part-time, choose the Manchester MBA to experience ’learning-by-doing’, live client projects, global study opportunities and the flexibility to customise your MBA.

At Alliance MBS, we take 'Original Thinking Applied' seriously. That's why we structure the Manchester MBA around four practical themes, rather than traditional subject areas: Management in Practice; Value Creation in Business; Tailoring Your Journey; and Professional Skills for Business. Everything you study is applicable to one of these themes. This real-world focus ensures we develop reflective leaders who can navigate the most challenging global trends and tensions.
