Durham celebrates Online MBA QS ranking success

Durham University Business School’s Online MBA has been recognised among the world’s top online MBA programmes by the QS Distance/Online MBA rankings published today.

The QS ranking rated Durham as 7th in the world, 4th in Europe and 3rd in the UK out of the 40 programmes assessed in 2017, compared to a position of 9th in the world and 6th in the UK out of 30 programmes last year. Among the MBA features assessed were employer reputation, student quality, establishment in the market, faculty and teaching, class experience and diversity.

Durham has a substantial track record in providing distance learning, having started an online MBA programme in 1998. Earlier in the year our online MBA was ranked second in the UK in the Financial Times Online MBA ranking 2017.

This week, Durham welcomed the first students to the new ‘fast-track’ online MBA, which can be completed in two years, enabling students to benefit from an MBA earlier to progress their careers.

The new Durham Online MBA also contains focused subject choices and personalised learning routes across Entrepreneurship, Consultancy or Technology for our global learning community. Learn more about the new Durham Online MBA via our announcement here and you can download a brochure here
