University of Cumbria Business School - Master's Degree

Its roots extend back to the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts established in 1822 and Charlotte Mason teacher training college in the 1890s. The university was originally based upon the idea of a "distributed learning network", so that teaching would take place both at the university's main campuses, and at remote colleges of further education around Cumbria, a rural county that includes the Lake District but this was too expensive to maintain.
