We are looking for students who are inquisitive and wish to learn more by investigating and researching. We believe that students who graduate from our new Business and Marketing courses will provide a strong foundation for the next generation of strategic managers.
The Masters / BA in Business and Management and Masters / BA in Marketing have a common first year, which builds towards highly specialised study in the final year. Students start to develop investigation and project skills through a range of activities including developing a business plan for a new start-up. The other modules work together to help you develop these key skills.
Note: You are encouraged to apply for the degree which most interests you. Subsequent transfer between these degree programmes will normally be possible.

The Masters year is based around working on a major research project connected with one of the School's research groups. Each year the research groups put forward projects related to business organisations and closely linked to staff interests and research. Masters students will bid for these projects and work as part of the research group under the supervision of specialised academic tutors. A highlight of the Masters year is the research conference where students present their work to business partners. The best work will also be published in Durham University Business School's web-based journal.
