Global Top 30 for Masters in Management

In The Economist Masters in Management 2021 ranking, our programme has placed 3rd in the UK, 22nd in Europe and 28th in the world.

The ranking assesses post-graduation salary, education experience, gender diversity, faculty quality, diversity of recruiters, personal development and the effectiveness of careers and alumni teams.

Inspirational Durham

Nour Mouakke, alumnus of the programme, said: “I absolutely loved every minute of my time at Durham University Business School. There is a very special vibe at Durham; it gives you a sense of ‘home’. I met some of the most wonderful people and built lifelong relationships with people from all over the world.

It’s fair to say that what inspired me to be an entrepreneur and to solve problems was Durham University. I was inspired by the academic staff, the educational materials and the engaging seminars we had.”

Highest employment rate in the UK

Our Masters programmes consistently appear in top independent rankings for both quality and reputation. Taught by world-class faculty and supported by international-quality research, these intensive one-year, full-time programmes enable students to develop and enhance the analytical and practical skills employers value.
