University of Salford

The Manchester Storm are pleased to welcome the University of Salford back to the Storm Shelter for the 2019/20 season.

As part of the partnership, four players from the Manchester Storm will have the opportunity to study for Masters degrees with the Salford Business School.

For example the Salford MBA, fully accredited with AMBA, 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. The enticement an MBA offers to prospective players is incredible, and sets the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) apart from all other leagues in the world.

The MBA partnership is something that many clubs in the EIHL have forged over the years with their local Universities, and the Storm have quickly forged a strong link with Salford University over the last few years on and off the ice.

The MBA programme has enticed several players to the Storm Shelter such as Luke Moffatt and Dallas Ernhardt that otherwise could have played for other clubs across Europe, and Salford students have had the opportunity to work with the team on physio and sports science opportunities as well as in the back office, so as a partnership both sides think this has been really valuable and are delighted that the partnership is continuing.

The University of Salford is ranked as one of the most international universities in the world, with over 3,500 of the 18,920 students coming from different 85 countries, making the University of Salford a truly international institution. The University provides real-world, career-focused experiences and offers courses that are shaped by the feedback they receive from their hundreds of industry partners. Two thirds of all courses offer work placements, some of which are abroad and almost all of which count towards degree classifications. The University recognises the importance of flexible learning options, including part-time and distance learning study.
