Benefit from the kudos of two world-class schools.

Kelley School of Business
The world leader in online learning

Half of the courses on the Kelley-Manchester Global MBA are delivered online by Kelley School of Business, Indiana – a world leader in online learning. Kelley’s rigorous curriculum is delivered online in a flexible, interactive format that works for busy professionals, so you can advance your career while you continue to manage other responsibilities in your life.  You’ll learn from the same respected faculty that teach on the School’s residential programmes – award winning, accessible teachers who will recharge your thinking on business. Kelley also delivers classes from Washington DC.

Alliance Manchester Business School
The global expert in immersive teaching

Half of the courses on the Kelley-Manchester Global MBA are delivered by Alliance MBS. These courses typically include an intensive three-day workshop delivered by our  most senior faculty – a chance to step away from your day job and immerse yourself in the world of global business.

Since we opened our doors in 1965 as one of the  UK’s first business schools, we’ve set ourselves apart  with this focus on ‘learning by doing’. Our practical approach teaches MBAs to apply theory to live business challenges, think creatively and become opinion leaders.

“I changed jobs (and cities!) twice after starting the Global Part-time MBA, once halfway through the programme and again following graduation. The core knowledge I gained about finance, macro-economics and global trends gave me the confidence and the acumen to apply for new roles. The flexible study format definitely enabled me to make these moves and having the MBA on my CV helped with the selection process.”

“Overall, the MBA has made me a more rounded professional. Studying courses relating to different functions of an organisation, such as accounting and finance, has allowed me to appreciate other perspectives. I now understand their challenges and how they think, which makes me more effective in my role.”

“I was excited to find a prominent MBA that fit my busy schedule. I loved Kelley’s interactive classes and team projects, the professors’ responsiveness to emails and the bonds I developed with classmates during the face-to-face elements of the programme. Originally an engineer, during my time at Kelley I switched to a project management role at Rolls Royce managing $10.5 million budgets. Following that, I founded a contemporary technology consulting firm.”
