Alliance MBS is second in the UK for business research, according to the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 results. You can be assured of our quality - we are accredited by AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS - one of only a small number of business schools worldwide to receive accreditation from all three international business school and MBA accrediting bodies.

Our masters courses focus on today's key management challenges, and give you the chance to develop in-depth knowledge in a breadth of specialist areas, shaping your careers in the direction of your choice.  

Plus, you don't have to have previously studied business or management as many of our MSc courses take graduates from any academic background. Whether managing your own investment portfolio on the MSc Finance, looking at the effect of climate change and nanotechnologies on the way business is conducted on MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, or carrying out a project for a client company on MSc Business Analysis and Strategic Management, you will have the opportunity to learn in a forward-thinking, research-led environment working with academics at the cutting-edge of their fields. You will join a diverse group of students from over 65 nations, meeting friends for life and contacts for the future. 

You can take advantage of our top ranked careers service, voted No 1 in the UK most targeted by graduate employers (The Graduate Market in 2020, High Fliers Research), and have access for more than 4,500 UK and global employers.
