As a major UK Business School, we have a strong commitment to the internationalisation of our students, our staff and our curriculum.
As a major UK Business School, we are strongly international in our outlook. We welcome overseas students from dozens of countries each year. To help them prepare for their study, we offer a Business Summer School. This is a one-month residential summer school which runs each August, offering intensive business English and orientation activities.
We also have partnership agreements with colleges around the world, through which students can progress smoothly, and with the full support of both their college and MMU Business School, to complete honours degrees in Manchester.
The Business School also has a dedicated team of International Officers, who regularly attend education conventions and visit partner institutions around the world. They ensure that overseas students coming to study in Manchester receive a warm welcome and pastoral care throughout their studies.
Each year, we invite distinguished academics to come to Manchester as visiting professors to conduct lectures and seminars for our staff and students. We manage a number of international conferences each year and have joint research and consultancy projects with networks of universities across eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States and Asia.
