Your Go Goodwin’s Manchester Storm were delighted to be present today at University of Salford in Media City, to celebrate the official start of our FANTASTIC new partnership!

Storm GM, Neil Russell, joined with lecturers & staff from the University to talk about the partnership, which will see three Storm players each season attending the University to complete their Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at the Salford Business School. The fully AMBA accredited Salford MBA is a multi-disciplinary programme that has been designed to foster a broad spectrum of business skills that are in demand across all areas of industry.

As many Storm fans will already know, two of the three MBA positions have already been filled, with Mark Heatley & fan favourite, Paul Phillips grasping this opportunity with both hands. The 3rd & final MBA position has yet to be confirmed as yet, but Coach Omar Pacha has plenty of players banging down his door for this excellent opportunity.
