Founded in 1965, the Alliance Manchester Business School was one of the first two business schools in the UK. The school's two-year program focuses on international business through real-world learning.
Students complete a 10-week internship and do three consultancy projects. They must put in at least 600 hours toward their consultancy work. The school changed its name to Alliance Manchester in 2015 following a donation from Lord Alliance. Manchester has international centers in Miami, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Sao Paulo.
