Henley Business School No. 1 in the world for quality of MBA students and alumni network
(Which MBA? 2011)
Friday, 14 October 2011
In the Economist full-time MBA ranking published this week, Henley Business School once again confirmed its lead in two categories coming No. 1 in the world for 'Student quality' and No.1 in the world for 'Potential to network'.
The Business School places great emphasis on personal development throughout the programme ranked in the world's top 20 for 'Personal Development' (15th) and for 'Post- MBA salaries' (13th). Henley also moved up 8 places for "Quality of our faculty" and improved their position in the category of 'International student diversity' by 16 places.
Director of Post-Experience Postgraduate Programmes Dr. Richard McBain commented:
"We are proud of the calibre of our MBAs and of the strong international community of alumni. Henley has an international reputation for developing responsible leaders. On our MBA programmes we encourage participants to reflect on their growth and development through continuous assessment which culminates in a one-week international study trip to work with NGOs in South Africa."
Overall, Henley Business School ranked 57th worldwide - a result that was significantly influenced by the limited use of their Careers Services during a time of transition for the Business School.
Henley Business School Dean John Board said: "Over the past year the Management Team at Henley have addressed several issues which impact the MBA and specifically around careers. We have re-focused Henley's MBA portfolio, launched an exclusive online recruitment tool "MBAHeadhunter" and established a mentor programme for students thanks to our extensive alumni network. We look forward to strengthening our international reputation even further in the years to come."
Henley has over 33,000 alumni around the world and delivers executive education and MBA programmes in Northern and Central Europe, Asia Pacific and South Africa as well as via an extensive network of international partners.
