Support Henley

There are a number of ways in which everyone, both individuals and corporates, whether you are a member of Henley’s alumni network or not, can get involved and make a difference.

Become a Donor

Henley was the first business school in the UK and remains one of the most respected schools in world. Proud of its heritage, triple-accredited status and international reach, Henley’s vision is to build upon its success and to constantly deliver the unique Henley experience to students across the world. It is critical to the success of Henley’s future that we are able to turn to the support and involvement of our global community, and in doing so create a network of benefactors who will help to shape the future of Henley Business School.

How will your support be used?

We currently have four different initiatives that Henley Business School is seeking funding towards, and that our community of supporters is generously donating towards.

Each of our initiatives cover an area of our activities, and include projects and programmes that are vital to enhance and enable the student experience, and ensure that Henley Business School remains at the cutting edge of business theory and practice.

Student Excellence:

  • The Student Excellence initiative is one of the cornerstones of our activities, and exists to encourage the best and brightest students to study at Henley Business School, and ensure that students are not restricted in their studies due to financial concerns

Teaching & Learning:

  • Our Teaching & Learning initiative exists to enhance the student experience at Henley Business School, whether that is ensuring the availability of excellent study resources, or supporting the mental well-being of our student body.

In the World of Work:

  • Keeping Henley Business School at the forefront of discussion and research into the future world of work, and ensuring that our students are equipped to deal with the dynamic working environment of tomorrow.

Excellence in Research:

  • Our faculty at Henley Business School are shaping the future of business through their work, and with your help, they can continue to bring benefit to all aspects of modern life.

Why Give?

  • You can help empower individuals to become great professionals and the outstanding leaders of tomorrow, by helping them access a world-class education.
  • You can help our faculty continue to produce outstanding research, which will maintain and strengthen Henley’s position among the world’s leading business schools.
  • Your support can help expose our students to opportunities such as international study; mentoring and personal development experiences that can help make them aware of the truly diverse nature of business as a global concept, helping them to become global citizens.
  • You can enable Henley to invest in projects that have the potential to change lives, but that would not otherwise be possible without the generosity of our donor community.
  • Both you and your company can help our students at all levels to become the effective work force of tomorrow, who are not only equipped with the cutting-edge business theory our faculty provide, but also with real world experience and key knowledge of the current trends and issues in the modern world.

How Much?

All contributions, no matter their size, collectively make a significant impact on Henley Business School, and the global community supported and strengthened by Henley Business School initiatives. All contributions to any Business School project are thankfully received, and we are grateful to our incredible body of individual and corporate supporters.
