Alliance MBS Awarded £9.7 million
(14 July 2017)
Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS) has been successful in securing £9.7 million from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) towards the redevelopment of its new building.
The grant, announced by Universities and Science Minister Jo Johnson, has been awarded through the HEFCE-managed UK Research Partnership Investment fund (UKRPIF), which supports higher education research to attract investment, and to strengthen the contribution of research to the economy.
Professor Fiona Devine, Head of Alliance Manchester Business School, said: “It is testament to our research strength that HEFCE has identified Alliance Manchester Business School as a driver for economic and inclusive growth in the region.”
The £84 million redevelopment of Alliance Manchester Business School is part of the University’s Campus Masterplan. The landmark refurbishment of the UK’s largest business school will deliver state-of-the-art facilities to the campus including a new learning resources centre, data analytics visualisation lab and a behavioural economics and strategic management laboratory.
