FT ranks Online MBA first in Europe for aims achieved

In the Financial Times Online MBA Ranking 2020, which was announced today, the Durham MBA (Online) ranked as number one in Europe for the extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals for doing an Online MBA. There are many different reasons for undertaking an online MBA but earning potential and movement in career are high on the agenda for many candidates. It’s excellent that this ranking shows the average alumni salary for Durham MBA (Online) graduates reached its highest ever level: $142,892.

The programme also ranked number one globally for its international mobility – for the second year in a row. This ranking is calculated according to whether or not alumni’s citizenship and work locations pre-MBA differed from that of graduation, and also three years after graduation. To come first in the world, in such a competitive ranking, proves the international focus of our Online MBA, and the ability it gives students to adapt and progress in their careers, whether that be in their role, industry or location.

The ranking also reviews how effectively corporate social responsibility (CSR) is embedded into the curriculum. This is measured by the proportion of credits from core courses dedicated to CSR, ethics, social and environmental issues, with Durham ranking as 1st in the UK, demonstrating the key focus that Durham has on ensuring all modules instil a holistic purpose of business in future leaders, ensuring they are equipped with the skills, tools and values to build a more inclusive and prosperous society in sync with our natural world.

The Durham MBA (Online) ranked overall as 7th globally, 3rd in Europe and 2nd in the UK – all of which were unchanged from last year’s Financial Times ranking.
