50th anniversary site for Manchester Business School

7th May, 2015

For Manchester Business School, 2015 is certainly a year worth celebrating. Why? Because this year marks the influential institution’s 50th anniversary. To help commemorate this, mN have been working with MBS to create a responsive website to act as a digital hub for all activities surrounding the anniversary. We are thrilled to announce that the site is now live and ready for you to explore.  

To compliment an extensive programme of celebratory events, the online hub allows visitors to explore all the major historical moments from the School’s 50 year history via an interactive digital archive.

To create a truly interactive experience, the site centres on an immersive timeline offering an overview of MBS’s heritage, international reach and the School’s future plans for expansion. We also created a feature that invites people to share their personal memories of their time at the School. As well as sharing their own stories, visitors can browse the recollections of ex-students and ex-professors. So if you’re an MBS alumni, it’s a perfect opportunity to get a bit nostalgic!

Our Creative Director, Adam Todd, said “it’s been a privilege to play a part in the commemoration of 50 years of the Manchester Business School. We hope that using the site will help people to explore the School’s defining moments, contribute their memories to the digital archive and discover how to get involved in the ongoing celebrations throughout 2015.”

We have worked closely with the team at Manchester Business School to deliver a site that conveys the reputation and legacy that the School holds globally. The ultimate ambition is that the site resonates with a broad audience who’ll enjoy getting lost in the content.

For the latest activity in this year’s programme, MBS are asking the public to celebrate the North West’s best ‘Original Thinkers’. Is there someone you think should be in the list? If you do, you can submit your nomination on the site. Get your thinking cap on; you have until the 21st of May.
