History and Heritage

Founded in 1965, Manchester Business School quickly established itself as one of Europe's leading centres for management teaching and research. This reputation spread particularly quickly amongst employers, who preferred Manchester's practical approach to the more theoretical methods used by many universities.

The School's MBA programme reflected its philosophy of learning through the practical application of theoretical knowledge. This was as a result of excellent links with industry, and the consequent balance of classroom teaching with real consultancy in a business situation. This unique approach has become known as the Manchester Method', and it clearly distinguishes Manchester] Business School from other business schools - in terms of both curriculum and results.

The Manchester MBA is highly valued both by companies who recruit our graduates and by formal accrediting bodies. Indeed, in 1996, the Association of MBAs (AMBA) extended its accreditation of the Manchester MBA for a further seven years, the longest period allowed under its rule,' Two years earlier, the government funding body HEFCF, assessed the School's quality of teaching and learning and placed it in its highest category: excellent.

The Manchester Method -a unique approach to learning

The 'Manchester Method' is an approach to learning, unique to Manchester Business School). It is based on the proven educational principle that the most effective way to learn and remember is through practical application. The 'Manchester Method' includes a wide range of developmental and experiential activities, giving participants the chance to learn through the practical application of the theoretical knowledge they have absorbed.

Manchester Business School also supports the principle that individuals can achieve far more by working co-operatively in groups rather than in isolation. For these reasons, the Manchester Method' is grounded in group project work which mirrors the way in which modern managers work. This comprises three distinct stages:

  • building the necessary portfolio of knowledge and skills through lectures, tutorials, case studies and mini-projects.
  • On the full-time MBA programme, this includes an appreciation of national and cultural differences and how these
  • can impact on effective group work
  • undertaking internal group projects within a controlled environment. These give the participants the opportunity to
  • practise project work with maximum support anti minimum risk
  • group consultancy projects with a client organisation. Under the supervision of a faculty member, groups undertake
  • a major piece of consultancy work on behalf of Sponsoring organisations. Examples of these consultancy projects are described here by former participants
