This taster session will give you an opportunity to experience a typical Executive MBA – Global workshop. The session If leadership is the answer, what was the question?, led by Dr Chris Dalton, will look at how we can process past experience, current thinking, and critical analysis to work out new options in real-world management issues. Our focus is on process, to give you a taste of the classroom approach and learning philosophy at Henley. You will be able to experience the typical learning dynamics of an Executive MBA – Global workshop including interactive discussions and group work and get to meet potential other students on the programme.
