Durham University Business School is proudly integral to one of the world’s prestigious universities. Our vision and mission as a School, is to lead business thought and enthuse leaders and entrepreneurs to create, share and use knowledge to deliver equitable and sustainable futures around the world. 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 link businesses with incisive and innovative thinking. Our connections with business, public sector and voluntary organisations in addition to 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 Masters 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 18,000 alumni in over 150 countries. In recent years, our students have partnered with international organisations including Santander, Vodafone, Tata Consultancy Services, BP and Nissan. Our students have also embarked on global business experiences to countries including China, Switzerland, and Germany. We are also fully committed to ethical behaviour among our students and staff and therefore an emphasis on corporate social responsibility is integral to all our activities.
