Robin Gleaves graduated from the MBA programme at Manchester Business School in 2001. From that time he played a very active role at Manchester Business School, as an alumnus, Visiting Fellow and supporter. Robin epitomised the very best of MBS graduates and was a superb ambassador for the School.
In the weeks before his untimely death in November 2011, Robin was discussing the possibility of a “Class of 2001 MBA Scholarship”. After discussion with his family, friends and members of staff, it was felt a fitting tribute to Robin’s memory would be to go ahead with the MBA scholarship, to be established in his name as the Robin Gleaves Class of 2001 MBA Scholarship.
