About Manchester Business School

Established in 1965 as one of the UK’s first two business schools, Manchester Business School is the UK’s largest campus-based business and management school. ‘Original Thinking Applied’ is at the heart of everything we do. We provide industry-focused education to undergraduates, postgraduates and executives, and our influential research impacts business locally, nationally and internationally.

We are also one of few institutions to have achieved triple accreditation from AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS.

What Recent Grads Say See All 5 Comments >

The best aspect of the Manchester MBA program was the number of opportunities, inside and outside, the classroom which were made available to the students. On numerous occasions, there were case competitions, sporting competitions, client facing projects, leadership roles, networking events, and opportunities to travel.
