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.

The Manchester MBA will take you out of your comfort zone from day one and encourage you to think, question and find solutions to complex, glob­al business problems.
