Program Overview

About University of Manchester Business School

"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 around 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. Our academic structure offers you more choices and is more responsive to your needs. 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." - University of Manchester
