Meet Alliance Manchester Business School staff and students at the final events on 29th and 30th June.

 “A motivational and learning tool for the business and enterprise teacher that will knock the students' socks off! There is simply nothing better on the market."

Colin Kilpatrick, Head of Business Studies, St. Edward's Secondary School, Poole

“The Finance Lab event has really enhanced my interest in both investment banking and a potential career within Citi Group. This is a great way to meet company representatives.”

Victoria Emery, Accounting & Finance MSc, Northern Ireland

“It highlights the use of information to make decisions, how information is based on raw numbers, and the ability to use this in making decisions which have a consequence (i.e. losing/making money).”

Ursula O’Hagan, Business Studies Teacher, St. Rose’s Dominican College

"Dealing Room served as a great opportunity to reinforce many mathematical terms and concepts. Students developed an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular industry sector, with its direct relevance to the world of work."

Mark Bouckley, Assistant Headteacher, Hedingham School, Essex
