“Welcome to Alliance Manchester Business School.

“Throughout your degree, you will engage in a wide range of approaches to teaching and learning designed to give you the opportunity to develop your critical evaluation and independent thinking skills. You will be taught by subject specialists, many of whom have experience in industry and research.

“You can select from a range of optional courses that allow you to develop your knowledge, skills and understanding across a broad range of Management subjects. All degree programmes offer the opportunity for an industrial placement or year abroad, so there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your degree and gain valuable experience.

“There is an excellent system of academic support and in the first few weeks of your course, you will get to know our Academic Advisor. You will then meet with them fortnightly throughout your first year regularly throughout your programme.”
