At Durham University Business School we believe that to succeed in business, students need to experience the realities of business. So that's what we do. We connect students and alumni with global companies and we link businesses with incisive and innovative thinking. The world of business is more connected than ever before, and the School is at the heart of this far-reaching network. Our connections with business and other academic institutions bring countless benefits. For students, these connections are a gateway to live projects and the challenges of research.
Our undergraduate internships and placements allow students to immerse themselves in the real world of business, and our Strategic Business Projects enable MBA and master's students to apply their knowledge to practical challenges in the most forward-thinking companies. We're proud to be a truly international school with more than 13,000 alumni in over 100 countries. In recent years, Durham's MBA students have partnered with international organisations including Santander, Vodafone, Tata Consultancy Services, BP and Nissan.
Our students have embarked on global study tours to countries including China, Switzerland, and Germany. We work in partnerships with universities around the world, and collaborate with other respected institutions to deliver specific programmes. Our people make Durham University Business School one of the most respected business schools in the UK. With a shared passion for exceptional teaching and research, we bring together experts from around the world. Their global experience, outstanding research insight, and real business connections ensure we are at the leading edge.
