    Nowadays very little- many use them interchangeably, though we only use 'due to' after the verb 'be'- it was due to... Some people say you should use 'due to' at the start of a clause, but very few bother about that now.

    If you're taking the Gmat exam, I believe they are still worried about the difference, but most people aren't.
