Organisation profile


Alliance Manchester Business School was established in 1965 as one of the UK's first two business schools. Today, we are the UK's largest campus-based business and management school, and 'Original Thinking Applied' is at the heart of everything we do.

A full-service business school, we provide industry-focused education to undergraduates, postgraduates and executives. Our influential research impacts business locally, nationally and internationally, and covers a broad range of areas across our four divisions: accounting and finance; innovation management and policy; management sciences and marketing; and people, management and organisations.

With centres in Dubai, Hong Kong, São Paolo, Shanghai and Singapore, our reach is truly global. We are one of few institutions to have achieved triple accreditation from AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS, and the Financial Times ranks our MBA 7th in the UK, 14th in Europe and 38th globally. 

A £15 million donation from Lord Alliance of Manchester and trustees at the Alliance Family Foundation ensures an exciting and prosperous future for the School.
