The Durham MBA Full-time study

Accreditations: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS

Programme Features

  • The Durham MBA provides core modules to build a foundation of managerial knowledge, while elective modules allow the MBA to be tailored to particular interests. Three pathways are available: entrepreneurship and new venture creation, explored in different contexts; consultancy and project management, where students gain insight into the hard and soft skills needed for success in this area; or technology innovation and business analytics.
  • Students can experience the tensions of a real life leadership challenge in the boardroom. Chaired by experienced company executives, it draws together student’s skills and tests them in a live context.
  • A strategic business project offers students the chance to put theory into practice by spending time in an organisation on a real life project – either through consultancy or an internship, gaining experience and enhancing their professional networks.
  • Students visit leading global companies to understand and evaluate the complex nature of different dimensions of their business, with a range of destinations and challenges available. As part of the programme, students can study a language including German, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
  • On the 15-month MBA, students can undertake a three-month internship to explore a new industry role or, if students aspire to be an entrepreneur, explore a business plan, funding options, and gain access to mentoring.
