About

The one year, full-time Management (Human Resource Management)  programme at Durham University is designed to provide you with the tools, techniques and knowledge to succeed in business.

The programme consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice-based business project or a research-based dissertation.

International Experience

Our strong international optional activities are an integral part of the programme and aim at providing you with the experiential learning needed to acquire an inside perspective of operating globally.

During the International Study Tours, groups of students visit at least one European destination (e.g. Geneva, Mannheim, Dublin) for around a week; some (e.g. Geneva) are offered as electives, others as part of wider experience.  These partially self-funded competitive activities provide you with an opportunity to visit a series of prestigious global businesses and to analyse them using a structured learning approach. 

As such the International Study tours are designed to expose you to the challenges of global business, help you make new contacts, and equip you with the international awareness needed to stand out in a competitive job market.  All of this while having fun!
