Top 50 Globally and Top 5 UK for Durham University Business School’s Masters in Management

The 2019 Financial Times Masters in Management (MiM) rankings have placed Durham University Business School 50th globally. This represents a huge gain with the School climbing 17 places from 67th in 2018. The School’s programme is also ranked in the UK top five.

Professor Susan Hart, Executive Dean of Durham University Business School said:

“Durham University Business School’s MSc programmes are all taught and delivered by world-class faculty, whose leading research underpins the learning experienced by our students. One-year, full-time programmes, like the Masters in Management give students the opportunity to develop and enhance practical skills that employers are looking for. It is no surprise that the Durham Masters in Management, alongside our other programmes, consistently ranks highly for both reputation and quality, in independent assessments such as this Financial Times Masters in Management Ranking.”

The annual FT global ranking assesses a range of measures for each programme featured, including post-graduation salary, salary increase, faculty quality, diversity and international course experience. The Durham Masters in Management has a range of specialist routes available, including the MSc Management (Finance) and MSc Management (Human Resource Management). However, the ranking was based on the main MiM route.

This ranking also places the Durham programme as 43rd in Europe, an increase of 14 places from 2018. The rankings also show that Durham’s programme is 16th in the world for career progression which emphasises the recognition by employers of the skills and knowledge passed on to the students.

Professor Nick Ellis, Director of Masters in Management Programmes, said:

“The Durham Masters in Management syllabus, with its unique choice of specialist pathways and elective modules, makes it a very attractive package for prospective students. This, combined with the fantastic opportunities on the course for students to undertake study visits abroad, complete their dissertation in an overseas university and take part in international summer schools, along with a high level of careers support, has kept the programme at the forefront within this very competitive market place.”

The business school is one of a small elite group of academic institutions worldwide who are accredited by all three major quality assurance boards (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA).
