Durham University Business School Online MBA Ranked in Global Top 10

Durham University Business School’s Online MBA programme has been recognised within the world’s top 10 programmes by QS in its Global Online MBA Ranking 2019.

The ranking, published today, lists the 40 best online MBA programmes on offer at business schools around the world, judging each on criteria including class profiles, employability, academic reputation and class experience.

The Durham Online MBA has been ranked within the global top 10 for the first time, and has been positioned as the 4th best programme available in the UK.

The School has also performed extremely well in regards to its class profile, ranking 3rd in the world, affirming the highly diverse and high calibre nature of the programme’s cohort.

Associate Dean of MBA Programmes, Professor Julie Hodges, said:

“Our Online MBA programme being ranked in the top 10 of the QS MBA rankings is excellent news and shows the continuing relevance to business and strength of our programme globally.

As demand for digital programmes is increasing, we are seeing an increase in applications for our Online MBA. The programme offers the opportunity for students to learn and collaborate across time zones as well as providing the flexibility for them to fit their studies around their lives”.

Durham University Business School is one of the UK’s longest established business schools, carrying three internationally-recognised quality accreditations; EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. It has also established a long history of providing innovative, digital learning methods for its students, first launching its online MBA, originally classed as a Distance Learning MBA, in 1998.

Since then, the programme has evolved significantly. Today’s students utilise a range of modern tech tools to ensure 24/7 support in their learning experience, can build flexibility for the duration of their programme to help facilitate simultaneous study and career progression, and are also offered the option of blended learning, taking modules on campus as well as online.

In line with their on-campus Full-Time MBA peers, Durham’s Online MBA students also have the option to specialise their studies by following one of three structured pathways: Entrepreneurship, Consultancy or Technology.
