Program Overview

About the Alliance Manchester Business School

University of Manchester logo

The Alliance Manchester Business School is the business school of the University of Manchester in Manchester, England. It provides education to undergraduates, postgraduates and executives across the globe.The University of Manchester was created in October 2004 by bringing together The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST, two of Britain's most distinguished universities, to create a powerful new force in British higher education. Twenty Nobel Prize winners have either studied or conducted some of their work here, including Ernest Rutherford who is known for his work on splitting the atom. The University of Manchester has about 25,600 students and is home to approximately 7,400 international students from 180 countries. There are 10,407 staff employed by the University of Manchester, including more than 4,500 academic and research staff to provide you with a stimulating learning environment and the highest standard of teaching. The University has teaching and research in more subjects than any other single-site British university. Situated in the heart of Manchester, the campus has a mixture of traditional Victorian buildings and more modern architecture that sit comfortably alongside each other creating an exciting and eclectic environment.

Academic Information

If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend two individual advising meetings to plan and revise your schedule: one with NYU Stern Academic Advising and one with the NYU Stern International Programs team. As you build your academic schedule for your semester abroad, carefully review and consider the following course information.

 

IBEX Course Information

  • You may take a full semester of business classes while abroad on IBEX.
  • Leave room for at least two general electives in your schedule. This allows you to:
    • Take interesting, location-specific courses not offered at Stern, and
    • Have more flexibility during the course registration process.
  • Reference the IBEX Course Guide: What you can or cannot take.
    • You can take a maximum of two classes per concentration.
    • Accounting courses cannot be taken for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations.
    • All IBEX grades will transfer back to NYU Stern as Pass/Fail.

 

Previously Approved Courses

  • Listed below are courses that were taken previously by Stern IBEX students and have already been approved for a specific NYU equivalent.
  • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible. Have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • If a course is already listed below as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.

 

Finding New Courses

  • You are not limited to only taking the courses listed on this page.
  • If you see a course on Manchester’s website that you would like to take, but is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Programs team for approval.
  • Once Manchester publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is being offered.
