- 2nd in the UK/16th globally for international faculty and for the proportion of faculty who have doctorates
- 9th globally for international students
- 3rd in the UK for international mobility of graduates
- 3rd in the UK for the proportion of female faculty
- Alumni salaries increased by 8% from 2003 graduates

"Our position reflects the School's development over the last two years and our drive to be one of the top Schools in Europe. It is especially pleasing to see our international strength across faculty, student body and alumni community recognised. "
In October 2003, Durham was placed in the Economist MBA rankings as 61 in the world.
