Manchester Business School receives £9.7m funding
The Alliance Manchester Business School has received a £9.7 million investment from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). This will be delivered through the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) project, and will join £23 million already promised by private investors.
The investment will become part of a wider £1 billion campus refurbishment project across the University of Manchester.
The head of Alliance Manchester Business School, Prof. Fiona Devine, 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.
She added: “It has coincided with the emergence of the Government’s Industrial Strategy and will enable us to make a rapid impact in balancing the economy through regional economic development.”
