    Durham University is the third oldest in England, after Oxford and Cambridge and is established on the same collegiate basis. Durham has maintained its leading role among universities through its unswerving dedication to the pursuit of excellence in all fields.

    Established in 1965, Durham Business School has developed an international reputation for its innovative approaches to management education and enterprise development. It is an integral part of the University and maintains a close relationship with business and commerce.

    About the course

    The Durham Distance Learning MA in Management is a pure distance learning programme that requires no attendance at tutorials and only attendance at an annual residential seminar; all the materials and textbooks required to undertake the degree are delivered to the student, regardless of location world-wide. It is highly flexible, allowing students to relocate or to extend the study period.

    The programme is structured into three Stages and can be completed in 2 Stages, with assessment by coursework and examination. There is a mandatory Seminar in Durham at the end of the first stage. The third Stage is a project resulting in a Dissertation.

    Student support is provided by Subject Tutors, to whom assignments are submitted and who are available to provide academic advice. Communication can be by post, fax or e-mail. For the Project a Supervisor is appointed to provide guidance. The programme is wholly administered from a dedicated office within the Business School.

    The Durham MA in Management by Distance Learning will provide a solid foundation for further studies and delivers the potential for an accelerated MBA after 3 years work experience.
