The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University claims to be the first ever legitimately global business school and with a presence in Shanghai, New Delhi, Dubai, St Petersburg, London, Johannesburg and Durham US few could argue with their claim. Having a foothold in key strategic economies offers many benefits to students and allows Fuqua to leverage relationships with multi-national companies across different continents, all facing different business challenges.
Fuqua is currently ranked just inside the top 20 in the Financial Times Business Schools Global MBA Rankings. There seems to be strong affinity between Fuqua Alumni and the financial services sector with 30% of Alumni pursuing a career in this sector.
According to the FT rankings, Alumni rate Fuqua to be strong across all the main core subjects from Accounting to Marketing, however, slightly lower in e-Business which is surprising for a business school striving to join up business thinking across different continents. Another slightly surprising fact, given the global focus of Fuqua, is that only 21% of Alumni go on to work outside of their country of origin.
Fuqua prides itself in its career support and offers a range of services through the Duke MBA Career Management Center. In fact Fuqua is ranked a very respectable 9th by the FT Global MBA Rankings when looking purely at Placement Success Rank*.
