Goal 4: Operations

The University’s operational activities play a key role in our approach to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Here’s a wider showcase of our work addressing Goal 4.

University partnerships

In 2018, we signed the international SDG Accord as part of our ongoing commitment to social responsibility and environmental sustainability. In 2019 our Alliance Manchester Business School signed the Principles for Responsible Management in Education (PRME).

Equity and Merit Programme

Our Equity and Merit Programme supports the brightest minds from some of the least developed countries in Sub-Saharan Africa – Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe – to develop skills for sustainable development in their home countries.

Thanks to funding by the University and the generosity of our donors, more than 300 international students have completed master’s programmes with us.

School Governor Initiative

Our multi award-winning School Governor Initiative supports the leadership and development of local state schools and colleges by encouraging our staff and alumni to become school governors.
