 What Our Students Say


University student
I chose a DBA to broaden my horizons, challenge myself and achieve personal growth; to meet other researchers and access a researcher network. For doctoral students, Durham is a great place to be, with all the resources you need and a first-rate team of faculty and administration staff to help you. Durham is a special university city with enormous energy about it.
