Durham’s Distance Learning MBA in FT's Top 20
(24 March 2003)
Durham’s Distance Learning MBA took its place in the world’s top MBA programmes in a list produced by the Financial Times today.
The FT’s inaugural survey on Distance Learning examined issues surrounding Distance Learning MBAs and included a listing of the world’s top 20 programmes. In addition to Durham, Pennsylvania State University, Warwick, The Open University and the University of Pheonix were also listed. Programme particulars observed included accreditation, completion rates and percentage of overseas students. Professor Tony Antoniou, Director, Durham Business School comments: “Durham's Distance Learning MBA sits with the world’s best programmes offering excellent quality, flexibility and support. Our MBA ethos spreads across all our MBA programmes. The curriculum and support systems ensure our MBA Distance Learning students receive the Durham MBA experience wherever they are in the world. Our students typically have 10 years professional experience and courageously juggle a rigorous MBA with senior management positions and personal commitments.” It’s pleasing to see our programme recognised as one of the best. Only last month we received full AMBA accreditation for all our MBAs and we are one of the few schools to have their full portfolio of MBA programmes accredited by AMBA.” For further information, please click on link below.
