What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?

Our Manchester Method - live consultancy projects provides a transformational experience

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

This year the Manchester MBA has been re-designed to allow for variable exit points.  The Manchester MBA has traditionally been a 18 month programme, now students can complete it in 12 or 15 months as well as the traditional 18 months.

We structure the Manchester MBA around four practical themes, rather than traditional subject areas.  Management in Practice to understand today’s complex uncertain business environment and overcome the challenges of leading and managing in a rapidly changing world.  Value Creation in Business to explore how contemporary businesses create value, both from an academic and commercial perspective.  Our holistic approach transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries, and harnesses real and simulated business scenarios.  This emphasizes the interdependencies and interrealtionships between the operational, tactical and strategic functional areas of an organization.  Tailoring Your Journey where we allow our students to customize their MBA experience with options ranging from internships, study tours and live client projects.  Professional Skills for Business where we focus on the professional and personal competencies leaders require.

This real-world focus ensures we develop reflective leaders who can navigate the most challenging global trends and tensions.

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

Luke Skywalker

With over 900 hours of client facing time on the Manchester MBA, where our students work with three real-life clients, giving them the opportunity to prove themselves in high-pressure, high-risk business environments in preparation for a career in international business.   What better guidance could Manchester MBA students have than Luke Skywalker who was thrust into a situation where he was thrown in at the deep end as a Jedi Knight having to combine travel across galaxies, whilst learning the ‘ways of the force’ and having to tackle some extremely difficult challenges against the Dark Side.

Therefore Luke Skywalker would be the perfect character to be involved with our International Business Projects.  Our students would be travelling across the globe, they would need to be putting everything that they have learnt in the classroom into action with a real-life client who’s expectations would be extremely high.

Manchester Business School

The Manchester Full-time MBA not only gives you a thorough grounding in business theory, it also gives you the opportunity to put it into practice from day one with live consultancy project work and internships with high pro­file, multinational corporations.

Our unique, hands-on programme offers you 900 hours of client-facing time, enabling you to test the theories from the classroom immediately in real world situa­tions with blue chip organisations. You will gain interna­tional experience through project work, the inter­national exchange programme, and the chance to take an elective course or study tour at one of our global centres in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Sin­gapore and São Paolo.
