Liverpool John Moores University - Liverpool Business School
Liverpool Business School is a Faculty within Liverpool John Moores University and a provider of business education for over 30 years. As part of a modern civic university, we seek to make a significant impact to growth in the Liverpool city region and beyond.
Our corporate development portfolio recognises the impact that trained managers have on transforming business performance, and works across sectors and organisations to develop leaders and managers.
We believe the Government apprenticeship scheme is an opportunity to enable this transformation and have designed a range of flexible leadership and management programmes, mapped to the apprenticeship standards. The courses enable businesses to meet organisational training needs and staff to realise their potential, for those new to managing, right through to senior managers and leaders. We encourage businesses to use their apprenticeship levy to develop great leaders, who will help to lead change in their organisation.
We support businesses in an increasingly digital world by providing courses and graduates with the digital skills and knowledge required by all sectors. Our academic research strives to help fill knowledge gaps in the area of digital technology through research activity undertaken by our Digital Sciences Centre and Advanced Digital Research Group.
By understanding partner organisations, and engineering flexibility into the support we provide, we can help businesses grow. Through bespoke programmes and interventions built around individual businesses and employees, the Liverpool Business School will create the next generation of leaders, and assist in driving economic development right across the Liverpool City Region.
Manchester Airport Group
Andrew Cowan, CEO of Manchester Airport, said:
“We are proud to support the growth ambitions of the region’s business community, by providing them direct access to some of the world’s most important long-haul markets.
“This is an exciting year for Manchester Airport, with the major phases of our £1bn transformation set to be delivered, and a series of key new international routes being launched. All of which are a huge benefit to the 2.3 million passengers from Merseyside who use Manchester Airport each year.
“We are looking forward to meeting the entrants for this year’s awards and learning all about their business success stories.”
