Leadership Development and Team Effectiveness as part of Full Time MBA

Durham University Business School

Durham University Business School provides a progressive, dynamic approach to business education and research.

DBS are an innovative, enterprising, and forward-looking business school: preparing students to follow their career paths in the modern business world; and undertaking world-class research.

First Ascent contributes to the Full Time MBA and MA/MSc programmes at the Business School. Since 2008 we provide the Leadership and Personal Development programme for the Full Time MBA participants. This equips students with essential personal awareness, team working and leadership skills, as they embak upon their MBA.


The 3 day residential programme receives exceptional feedback every year and is remembered by students as one of their high points during their time at Durham. We provide supporting sessions throughout the academic year.

We also provide behavioural skills traing to the MA/MSc programme on a regular basis.

We also work with the staff of the Business School, to develop their leadership skills. First Ascent have recently been selected to provide training to all staff at the University on managing change and leading high performance teams.
