In the UK a masters in International Relations would not be an MBA, but an MA, MSc or MRes.
Among the best places are Manchester, Aberystwyth, Lancaster, Exeter. (Keele, Birmingham, Leeds and Sheffield also have good reputations).
It completely depends upon what aspect of IR you intend to study. Many of the best places will be particularly theoretical
Durham is a fantastic uni, but doesn't have a great rep for IR. Saying that their Politics and Geography depts have an amazing research cluster called politics-state-space, with people like David Campbell who I adore. If you want to do more critical IR, like Rob Walker's critique of the state as a product of spatio-temporal relations of early modern discourse then yes, Durham would be amazing for a PhD, but for a Masters, you would probably be better elsewhere.
