●      Tell us how you meet the scholarship criteria and what makes you stand out as an exceptional candidate for this award?
●      How do you help or inspire others?
●      How will your experience and personal qualities benefit the MBA class and what will be your contribution as a future Alliance MBS alumnus to return our investment in you?

If this is something you would like to consider we will make a personal introduction to Chris Healy, just email MYP at

We spoke to Chris, Head of MBA Recruitment at AMBS, about the partnership; “We recruit some of the most ambitious professionals from all over the world, and it’s also important for us to recruit some of the best talent in our own city which is why we partner with MYP in order to make it accessible for the MYP community to study for one of the best MBAs in the world.”

What Is An MBA?

An MBA stands for Master of Business Administration and is a globally recognised master’s degree. It is known for helping improve people’s skills and knowledge in the areas of business, and management. In a global landscape, where people can work from virtually any country, for any business, the need to showcase leadership qualities is vital. Thankfully, the MBA does just that and helps individuals take on senior leadership roles, allowing them to thrive in this competitive global landscape.

Background: Who Are AMBS?

Alliance Manchester Business School was established decades ago in 1965 and was one of only two business schools that were open at the time. It has since been integrated into the world-renowned University of Manchester and is based on their campus which, incidentally, is the largest business and management school in the UK!

AMBS offers a huge range of courses and provides people with education, no matter the level that they are currently studying at. The school offers undergraduate programmes, as well as Masters, MBAs (Master of Business Administration) and Executive Education programmes.

A key moment for them came 6 years ago in 2015 when they were renamed ‘Alliance Manchester Business School’. They were named this after a generous donation from Lord Alliance who pledged £15 million pounds as a donation to help cement the relationship between the school and the university.

Why Choose To Study A Master Business Administration With AMBS?

The AMBS offers this course in a variety of ways, to suit people’s lifestyles. Students can opt to study full-time or part-time, with elements of the course being carried out online, which is ideal in this current world of remote learning!

Students begin by studying the global business environment, and core business and management courses. After this, they’ll take on practical business projects, and choose from specialist electives. The great thing about AMBS’s MBA course is that it is filled with talented professionals from across the globe, which creates a rich learning environment that connects people from all walks of life.

Chris added, “This is a fantastic opportunity for the MYP community to continue to enhance their careers.  The Financial Times MBA Rankings 2021 indicate that our MBA graduates receive a salary uplift of 101% within three years of graduation.”

Other Reasons To Choose To Study With AMBS

  • Their MBA course was ranked 30th in the world by the Financial Times.
  • According to the same ranking, it is the 4th best course in the country and the 10th best in Europe!
