Sara Prowse of UA92 to speak at business breakfast
In partnership with law firm FieldFisher, TheBusinessDesk.com are pleased to invite you to the latest in FieldFisher’s bi-monthly business breakfast events.
Sara Prowse, chief executive of UA92 (University Academy 92), will be in conversation with TheBusinessDesk.com’s editor Michael Taylor on Thursday the 21st of September at 8:30 in the morning at FieldFisher’s offices on the 17th Floor of the impressive No 1 Spinningfields, 1 Hardman Square in Manchester city centre.
In June TheBusinessDesk.com reported that UA92 is expanding its operations into Manchester city centre after surpassing growth forecasts.
The higher education institution, founded by footballer Gary Neville and his colleagues in the so-called “Class of ‘92” and Lancaster University, is opening a 36,000 sq ft UA92 Business School in Baskerville House, opposite Salford Central and next to Spinningfields, adding to its current Old Trafford campus.
The new campus, which opens later this year, will host the facility’s business school and be a central hub for its collaboration and enterprise with UA92’s business partners, catering for up to 1000 students.
The move comes as UA92 has accelerated its strategic plans by two years, after exceeding forecasts for student numbers.
Since launching in 2019, it now caters for over 800 students, offering a portfolio of degree and higher education industry-led courses across business, sport, media and digital disciplines.
The institution works with leading corporates including Microsoft, TalkTalk, KPMG and Manchester United.
Sara will discuss:
- UA92 – how they are transforming and modernising higher education
- How do we improve career prospects for local communities in the North West?
- How can businesses work with UA92 to drive innovation and training?
Please come along for breakfast, an unrivalled view of the Manchester skyline from the 17th floor and a chance to ask Sara your questions and network with your peers. It’s free to register, click here to RSVP.
