Going global: connecting with potential business students
One of the many elements which makes studying here a great global business school experience is the diversity of our staff and students.
Consequently, all our students from around the world enjoy a truly international experience while studying here in Durham, helping to prepare our students to operate in the ever-changing international business world after graduation. To support this diversity and ensure prospective students know all about our excellence in business education, we attend a number of student recruitment fairs across the world each year.
By providing ‘Durham near you’ opportunities, it allows us to meet with prospective students and representatives to tell them about the fantastic suite of programmes we offer. The visit also allows us to meet with and update our agent and alumni networks on the latest developments at the University and the School.
In the last year, academic staff and members of the Marketing and Communications team (sometimes supported by University agents and School alumni) attended 57 events in the following 18 countries:
Brazil (Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro)
Colombia (Cali, Bogota, Medellin)
Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf)
Greece (Athens, Thessaloniki)
India (Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore)
Italy (Naples, Rome, Florence, Torino, Milan)
Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)
Mexico (Mexico City)
South Korea (Seoul)
Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi)
For anyone who would like to know more but are unable to meet us in person, we also offer webinar information sessions throughout the year. For these, a panel of staff are on-hand to answer questions about the programmes, admissions processes, student life in Durham and careers support.
