Manchester Global MBA Master Class
Disruptive Technologies & Sharing Economy


What business strategy is in a way that suits business practitioners in the 21st century? How to formulate and implement strategy at company and organizational unit levels? What is the relation between technology and strategy in the contemporary firm?

On the evening of 22nd April, The University of Manchester China Centre invited Paul Patton, from Alliance Manchester Business School,
to deliver a Master Class in Disruptive Technologies & Sharing Economy (Innovation and Efficiency) which will provide an overview of how disruptive technologies have impacted innovation and efficiency within various businesses. It will also explore how disruptive technologies has enabled the growth of the sharing economy and how our behaviour is now related to being an 'onsumer' rather than a 'consumer'.

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