Conferences, business simulations and competitions

During your time at Salford Business School, you will have opportunities to attend conferences, take part in business simulations and in competitions.

By taking part in these, you get a great opportunity to network with professionals in your industry and to try out what you’ve learned and get real feedback to it.

We actively encourage students to set up their own projects and submit them for competitions.
