Manchester MBA Masterclass Webinar with Xavier Duran

An MBA for an uncertain future - building critical thinking to thrive in a changing environment


As technology increasingly permeates wider areas of our personal and professional lives and we hear that a significant proportion of the jobs we will be doing in 20 years’ time are not yet invented, we resign ourselves to the need to change careers a number of times over our professional lives. Far from suggesting that these changes herald a decrease in the popularity of the MBA qualification, our webinar contends that they actually strengthen its relevance.


On the evening of 31st March, join Xavier Duran, MBA Programme Director at Alliance Manchester Business School, for this interactive webinar that will explore the benefits that focusing on building collaboration, communication, creativity and critical skills as part of an MBA journey can bring to graduates wishing not only to survive but to thrive in an uncertain and dynamic business environment. In so doing, it hopes to strengthen the case for the relevance of the MBA qualification in a digital age. During the event, Xavier will also further share the information and application procedures for both Global MBA programme and Kelley-Manchester Global MBA programme.

We are now kicking-off the recruitment for July 2020 intake of Manchester Global MBA. If your full application could be submitted by March 2020, you will get the priority to be awarded a tuition fee reduction.
