Practice-oriented management underpins everything we do in Durham University Business School and our customised Corporate MBA programmes are designed to deliver both rigour and relevance.
Since it was first introduced by the Harvard Business School in 1908, the MBA has been the "must have" qualification for senior and middle management, becoming almost the essential prerequisite in many business sectors. Over the past decade, however, MBA programmes have become a focus of increasing criticism for their emphasis on academic disciplines at the expense of organisational benefits.
Beginning with a confidential organizational needs assessment, we can blend a bespoke Corporate MBA package that suits your requirements. With a strong emphasis on action learning throughout, you can be sure that your managers will reap the benefits of a situated approach to programme delivery, with course and project work between modules feeding directly into the workplace then back to the classroom in an iterative manner. And, with case studies, scenarios and seminar input from your own in-house experts, the relationship between client and business school will be a truly symbiotic one.
Success in business depends on energetic, committed, professional people, and an essential prerequisite for attracting and retaining the very best is to be recognised as a leader in professional executive development. With this principle in mind, we have developed a comprehensive and professional approach to CMBA delivery guaranteed to offer your managers a low-cost high-return corporate education across the globe.
With a Durham CMBA, you are assured of a high-quality sector-specific programme from one of the world's leading research-led universities, yielding a return on investment that far exceeds tuition fees and sustainable competitive advantage.
