Why study at Salford Business School?

Salford Business School prides itself on the quality of its teaching, research and close links with industry, all of which contribute to the high calibre and employability of our graduates.

Building on our academic credentials, our MBA programme is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the School’s BSc (Hons) Finance and Accounting with Professional Experience course has been awarded gold star status by the University’s Student Union for the quality of teaching, learning resources and personal development opportunities.

In 2012, the School also achieved first place in the National Student Survey for the most satisfied students nationally across our Accounting and Finance degree courses.

Salford success stories

The quality of our teaching is reflected in the progression of our student body and the School has enjoyed a number of prominent success stories where our students and alumni have excelled, including;

  • Students on our Business Management course have reached the regional semi-final stage of this year’s IBM Universities Business Challenge 2011/2012
  • Two students have won the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development’s national prizes for excellence, in recognition of their outstanding management research
  • A company director outperformed over 260 candidates to achieve the distinguished position of IoD Diploma candidate of the year in 2011, whilst studying the course at Salford Business School.

Research that inspires change

Our academics are sought after for their business expertise and the School has forged mutually beneficial partnerships with household names including the Lottery Commission and the Barclays Premier League.

Recently the School has also been working with the School of Nursing and the North West Alliance to deliver a pioneering leadership programme across 24 Community Health Services. The programme has been recognised by the Institute for Leadership and Management and Salford was chosen over 200 other educational institutions to deliver the project.

Of course, our partnerships also benefit our students and we provide a variety of opportunities for those studying with us to take part in our consultancy and research projects. These include Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) and the ELIE Project (Employability: Learning through International Entrepreneurship), all of which offer invaluable professional experience and networking opportunities.
