Guests included Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham who spoke about the current political landscape affecting businesses in the North.
Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, President and Vice-Chancellor at the University was interviewed alongside Nisha Katona, Founder of Mowgli Street Food and Jonathan Patterson, MD, DWF Ventures.
Henri Murison, Director, Northern Powerhouse Partnership and Tricia Williams, Chief Operating Officer of Manchester Airport discussed whether the Northern Powerhouse has stalled in the last five years.
Students Leah Petr, MBA Class President, MSc student Sharon Canas and BSc student Elina Khaybullina also spoke to Ian about why they chose to study here at Alliance MBS and their career prospects.
The programme took place in the School’s Café 65, named after the year the School was founded in 1965.
