                                            "Henley students and staff during welcome week"

         
The programme is a three year BSc in Finance & Business and Management that enables students to study for a UK degree with the same content and of the same standard as we offer in the UK.  It also gives students the opportunity to study in Malaysia as well as, in the future, to study part of their degree at our UK campus.

 Henley Business School, being triple accredited by the world’s leading bodies, is strongly placed in the south-east Asia market.  We will be delivering programmes in Malaysia across a range of business topics including finance, investment banking, real estate, international business, and marketing & accounting in the coming years.   In the executive education field, programmes in coaching, leadership and our world ranked MBA are planned.  This is all part of Henley’s international strategy to take advantage of the growth in demand for education in the region. 

In 2015 Henley will be further establishing itself in the region when it starts operating from a new 20 acre campus which the University of Reading Malaysia is building at EduCity Iskandar, near to Johor Bahru.  It is within a 25 minute drive of Central Singapore and within easy reach of Kuala Lumpur.  EduCity is a 600 acre education hub comprising universities and higher education institutes alongside research and development centres. Its purpose is to provide world-class educational facilities and to encourage partnerships between education and industry. Being developed by Iskandar Investment Berhad, EduCity represents significant economic investment in the region and is indicative of the demand for first class education in south-east Asia today. So Henley looks forwards to welcoming many more students to its facility in the years to come.
