I find AMBS to be a pleasant place to study and focus. Thanks to its new design, the building is bright, spacious and comfortable, offering various facilities such as a library, individual study boxes, computer cluster and many more. However, note that the access to the building is strictly reserved for students taking business modules.
What I like the most about the school is that is offers events and workshops with outsiders, giving you the opportunity to connect with people sharing the same interests. If you are interested in enterprise and entrepreneurship, make sure to check the Masood Enterprise Centre located in the Business School, the focal point of these areas at the University of Manchester.
Overall I have had a decent time at Manchester, mostly due to the diverse opportunities that have arisen because of the extracurriculars and student-led opportunities. If you come to Manchester I would recommend checking out Manchester Entrepreneurs society.View more
AMBS provides excellent teaching and outstanding facilities, both of which combine to make a great learning experience.
The teaching staff make sure we have plenty of resources to aid our learning, and always make sure we are making the most of our studies.
The business building itself is the most impressive on campus, and provides plenty of places in which we can work.
It is a great university that provides extra support for its students. The teachers are very helpful and willing to support you and the environment is just great. It offers good facilities, study spaces and workshops that can help in your experience as a student.View more
Stepping into AMBS you know it’s a place you’ll thrive and learn! With amazing seating facilities and private meeting rooms, not to mention the plethora of eating constabularies! BUT a point about the many of the teaching staff … Just because you have a PHD in a given subject does not mean you are qualified to teach, some of the teaching I have experienced is some of the worst I have experienced thought my education. The fact that there are so many EXTRA drop in sessions makes it clear then teaching is sub par. If you want to improve this I would suggest placing lecturers and seminar leaders on some teaching courses.
However having said that the schools investment into careers services is exceptional. Along with SOME seminar leaders being a credit to the school where they pay extra detail to plan interesting, thought provoking activities.View more
