This year’s Salford Business School Ball took place on Friday 29th May at Hotel Football (owned by Manchester United’s Class of ’92) and was the biggest to date as it sold out with 260 people in attendance.

The Salford Business School Ball is an annual black-tie event that not only brings together final year and postgraduate students, staff, and alumni, but celebrates their success as well. However, this year the event was more spectacular than ever as Salford Business School celebrated winning Times Higher Education ‘Business School of the Year’ Award.


Why MBA? #WhyMBA

8 May 2015


Why should I undertake an MBA? This question is often asked on twitter #WhyMBA as people contemplate the decision to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA). To help respond to this question, we carried out research on the current MBA students at Salford Business School to determine what was important to them.

One of the greatest advantages of completing an MBA is the enhanced employability, 88% of Salford Business School graduates find a job or go onto higher study within 6 months of graduating according to the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey. MBA graduates typically earn higher salaries then other graduates and enjoy an average salary of £96,661 according to the AMBA Careers and Salary Report 2014.

One of the biggest advantages of completing an MBA is the enhancement of your employability, in particular at senior level in an organisation. Since the MBA degree is highly valued, having such a qualification opens up the job market, increases your chances of being invited to the interview and therefore provides greater career opportunities.

5 Reasons To Study MSc Marketing at Salford Business School

I’ve been studying MSc Marketing at Salford Business School for seven months now and thought it was about time to do a bit of cheerleading.

Not with pom poms or anything, but don’t they say the pen is mightier? Here are five points to prove it:


When I decided to leave my decent and not badly paid job in London to get onto a Masters marketing programme and into a load of debt, it was essential from the off that the course covered social media marketing.

Amazingly, the University of Salford was one of very few universities whose masters marketing course included a module in Search and Social Media Marketing, and this was the first thing that turned my head.

Now I’m here and studying the Search and Social Media Marketing module (#SSMMUoS), I know I made the right move. I’m even beginning to get to grips with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)!

If you fancy an exceptional career in Marketing, Salford Business School is the place to be. I am enrolled on the MSc Marketing program. My experience so far has been awesome and far beyond my expectations, studying at Salford University is an eye opener for me in the world of Marketing and business in general  as I have been able to acquire, identify and fine-tune the key skills needed for me to succeed in my career and also my personal life.

I have gained necessary skills in the area of reaching and building relationships with customers which sums up what marketing is. Marketing is an effective continuous communication about products or services to the customers. One of the key skills needed to accomplish that goal is analyzing the consumers to understand their purchasing behaviour. There are a thousand and one reasons that influence how customers relate to products and it is important for a competent marketer to be able to communicate value.


Salford Business School Graduation – Mission Impossible

I graduated! I am now officially a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Business and Management!

I have to say that it is the first ever graduation that I had. I missed Middle and High School graduation due to all sorts of reasons. For me Middle and High School is just the difference between level 17th of hell and 18th of hell. Well, we did not actually have a graduation that made us feel really happy.

My undergraduate graduation at Salford Business School on Friday 18th July is where I felt that my effort during the course has been acknowledged and celebrated.

I have to admit, I really did struggle at the very beginning as I could barely follow what Dr. xxx said in the lecture. I had no friends and my parents were 5600 mile away, basically I got nothing but myself. I started to live a life myself and I think this is all common for all international students, especially Chinese students (due to all sorts of cultural reasons, not quite sure about it).
