Issue six of Alliance Manchester Business School’s Magazine

Read the latest issue of our Magazine

Amid much recent talk of 'levelling up' the UK economy, the latest issue of our Magazine looks at specific research that has been undertaken by our academics into the regional economic disparities that exist across the UK.

Elsewhere in this issue we also look at what further reforms are needed to the Equal Pay Act 50 years since it was introduced, discuss the progression of healthcare management reforms in recent years, and also look at how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards are having an increasing impact on financial markets.

Other features include a review of a major report on the future of banking, research into how smartphones are blurring boundaries between private and work lives, and a look at how we can develop our reserves of resilience.

We also interview our new Honorary Professor C├ęsar Hidalgo, while our guest welcome comes from Sherry Coutu, founding chair of the ScaleUp Institute, who talks about the vital role that universities can play in helping scale-up companies grow.
