Established in 1965 as one of the UK’s first two business schools, Alliance Manchester Business School (Alliance MBS) is the UK’s largest campus-based business and management school. 


We became Alliance MBS in September 2015 following a landmark donation from Lord Alliance of Manchester, which we are investing in our ambitious research agenda and £50 million building project.


Globally-renowned, we have achieved triple accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS, and we have centres in Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and São Paolo.
