Our International Centers

Global centres in Hong, Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo.

During the second year of the programme you can attend workshops in any of our centres, including Manchester. A great opportunity to make new contacts from across the globe and experience new ways of doing business

Each international centre has its own permanent team of friendly and helpful staff, and facilities which include quality teaching rooms and library services. Regardless of location, you can be assured that the quality of support and resources are all that should be expected of a world class institution such as ours.

The centres are also used by students for informal get-together’s and study groups, and this networking forms an important part of the MBA experience – allowing you to become immersed in the world of international business and promoting an understanding of different cultures.

Hong Kong

Manchester Business School have offered MBA programmes in Hong Kong since 1992. The centre is ideally located in Hong Kong, which is the strategic position for numerous multinational corporations entering the Chinese market. Hong Kong is the financial and educational hub of East Asia covering South China, Japan, and Korea.


Manchester Business School have offered MBA programmes in Singapore since 1992 in partnership with the Institute of Banking and Finance. Such was the demand that we decided to launch our own centre in Singapore in June 1999.


We opened our Middle East Centre at the Dubai Knowledge Village in 2006. The centre provides support and co-ordination for more than 700 MBA students in the region, all of whom are experienced functional specialists or business managers. Over 70 nationalities are represented in the student body.


In 2008, MBS launched their new Chinese Centre in Shanghai. The office is located in the most famous commercial area in Shanghai. Flanked by Fortune 500 companies as well as flagship stores of leading luxury brand names, its position represents the stature of the Business School. The centres’ main goals are to develop the economic links with China and to extend the opportunity for people across the region to experience and enjoy Manchester’s MBA/DBA programmes.

Sao Paulo

Brazil was chosen as the base for our South American centre as it’s the largest national economy in Latin America and has been predicted to become one of the five largest in the world and is one of the four emerging economies called the BRIC countries. Established in 2010, the centre is spread across two of Brazil’s major cities, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
