Alliance Manchester Business School - AMBS

Customised Programme Development

At Alliance Manchester Business School we recognise that what works for one organisation does not necessarily work for another.

Our clients look to us to help them address their specific business issues. From leadership succession planning to the implementation of large-scale change, we work with a wide range of organisations to define their exact training and development needs to achieve the right solution.

So, whether that is adapting one of our existing tried and tested course formats or creating a bespoke programme from scratch, the content will reflect your challenges and your individual and organisational goals.

This approach has led to highly successful mutually beneficial partnerships with clients including Audi, BAE Systems, BP, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Mauritius Finance, NHS, Northern Rail, Seddon, and Siemens. 

Our customised programmes have had significant impact within organisations to: 

  • Promote culture change and stronger internal networks 
  • Motivate and incentivise staff 
  • Help retain the best employees 
  • Bring new ideas and a wider perspective to the organisation 
  • Offer unique, tailored solutions to specific business issues 
  • Help individuals transition to different roles or departments 

Each programme is designed by our experts to support delegates’ varied learning styles. From interactive workshops and student-led seminars to our own virtual learning environment, our team work with you to understand your people and help you choose the most appropriate methods to ensure everyone gets the most from the Alliance MBS experience. 

You can choose to base your programme at our custom-built centre - dedicated to our executive education clients, it is located at the heart of our Manchester Campus with excellent links to transport and accommodation. Alternatively, we can deliver your programme at a location to suit your company’s needs.
