We are a great, modern university, in a great global city, here to make an impact on Manchester, our nation and beyond, with a driving ambition to discover and disseminate knowledge, and make higher education accessible and beneficial to all those with the passion and ability to succeed. We work closely with our city, with business, the community and our academic peers – locally, nationally and internationally – to be inventive and creative, generate great opportunities, and enable our students, colleagues and everyone whose lives we touch to make an impact.
The University is committed to good governance and conducts its affairs in a responsible and transparent way, taking into account the requirements of the Higher Education Code of Governance, and the Seven Principles identified by the Nolan Committee on Standards in Public Life, which are selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
Manchester Metropolitan University is led by the Board of Governors, Academic Board and the University Executive Group. The University has 6 faculties, research centres across key disciplines and a range of departments, schools and professional support services that support the work of the University.
