Our global centres
The University of Manchester has four global centres. Each has an established international presence and strong links with the local business community.
For more than 25 years we've been providing transnational education. We have forged strong world-leading partnerships and developed centres of learning across four continents.
Our centres in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore offer a growing range of online and blended learning programmes, supporting MBA students learning by combining face-to-face and digital activities.
These physical centres also provide students with inspiring spaces to study and collaborate through networking events.
They help to continually grow our global network of almost 500,000 alumni across 190 countries.
We've had a presence in the Middle East since 2006 and have one of the region's largest MBA commuities. Here we deliver programmes including the Global MBA and MBA Dubai Study Tour.
Located in Hong Kong’s prime business district, the East Asia Centre was our first overseas hub. It attracts executives from around Asia, many who study our Global Part-time MBA.
In the heart of Shanghai you will find one of our largest overseas hubs. Established in 2008, it delivers programmes including the Global Part-time MBA and the Tongji-Manchester Global MBA.
We've had a presence in Singapore since 1992 and The South East Asia Centre opened in 1999. Here we deliver the Global Part-time MBA, Executive Education and MBA electives.
