Community : The “Triangle” area of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and surrounding communities is a wonderful place, frequently cited as one of the best places in the United States to live. Our region in North Carolina is one of the fastest growing and most dynamics parts of the U.S., with an outstanding variety of arts, social, recreational, educational, and intellectual opportunities.

Research Environment : We have a supportive research culture that is driven by the goal of outstanding scholarship, at all levels of the faculty. The research environment is rich with opportunities for field research in addition to larger sample empirical work. Many local and global organizations have key locations at Research Triangle Park and elsewhere in the Triangle area, and there are many opportunities for Fuqua faculty members to conduct research at dynamic companies and social organizations. In addition, our strong Executive Education and multi-faceted MBA degree programs provide many opportunities to link with companies throughout the world. The school provides faculty members with strong research support, including summer research funding, research assistants from our doctoral programs, world-class colleagues in departments and schools throughout Duke University, and strong linkages with outstanding faculty members and doctoral students at UNC-Chapel Hill and other nearby universities.

Teaching : Our teaching environment is innovative and exciting. The Fuqua School has five MBA degree programs, plus extensive open-enrollment Executive Education and Corporate Education programs. Faculty members generally teach in the programs that most interest them. Business Week, the Financial Times, and other business publications have ranked our programs among the top in the world in recent years. Management teaching plays a central role in all our programs and there is ample room for developing new courses and modules in any program.
