Durham Global MBA


tiffany_p

Hello,

I am from South East Asia and looking for the good quality MBA to gain more business knowledge. In a few year, I plan to run my own business.

Thus, I plan applying to Durham Global MBA in this October in take.
I primary chose the program base on course content, variety of elective courses provided each year and online block-course studying.

However, I wonder why the Durham University Business School is ranked very low compared to other UK business school.

In addition, I have researched on the MBB on campus recruitment that I found all of them recruit Durham's graduate while some of higher ranked universities are not listed.

Regarding theses information, could any one share me about class experience and quality of distance program at Durham, please?

Would I rather apply for Warwick DL MBA?

Since the ranking showed that Warwick DL MBA is higher ranked, top ten in UK, and earn significantly higher income. However, as the result of campus visit requirement, the cost will be also incremented.

Please help. Thank you in advance.

Search the board for posts about Durham. MBB probably recruit pre-experience people from Durham but I doubt that the DL MBA will be a path.

I agree. MBB would recruit high performing fresh grad from top faculties in Durham. Nothing can guarantee you to get good jobs even you are from Durham, it's about YOU!

I think that for many consulting-bound students from your region (especially those with MBB goals) - a good idea would be to pursue a full-time MBA at a school that feeds into those firms. LBS and Insead, for example.

Then, while in London/Fontainbleu/Singapore/whatever - you network/do projects/meet with McKinsey or whomever. They often look to place MBAs in their international offices, so you could try to work with them on your goals.

Of course, this method is far more costly upfront than the Durham online program. However, long-term ROI would be higher.

Yes, Insead and LBS are ideal targets. There are some second-tier schools though that place into MBB. Imperial's most recent careers report lists McKinsey as a recent recruiter. That's one of three, I suppose!

McKinsey targets undergrate at IMperial http://www.mckinsey.com/careers/your_career/mckinsey_on_campus/schools/ba/imperial_college_london Other schools will be better for the MBA.
