New dean of Alliance Manchester: Business Education ‘Can Create Prosperity & Opportunity For All’ 

From Manchester, UK: Professor Ken McPhail has taken up his post as Head of Alliance Manchester Business School and shared his vision for the future growth of the school, outlining how business can act as a powerful force for good in society.

“We are living in pivotal times for business, partly due to the nature of the challenges we collectively face, from climate change to global geopolitical upheaval and regional economic disparities here in the UK,” McPhail says.

“AMBS is an important and influential institution, combining world-class research across many different disciplines with real-world applications — more than 30 new start-ups each year are established here, for example. I want to build on the great work that has been done over the last 10 years to establish the best teaching, technical and educational facilities in Europe and further grow AMBS’ impact not only here in Manchester but across the UK and overseas.”

McPhail says business can play a fundamental role in helping to address these concerns and build a more equal and sustainable society. “It’s why I’m passionate about the transformative power of business research and education, which has a vital role to play in ensuring the UK economy can create prosperity and opportunity for all and elevate the UK’s status globally,” he says.
