Celebrating success at Greenlands graduation
20 September 2019
Celebrations are afoot at our Greenlands campus today as another cohort of business professionals and students graduate from Henley Business School.
Ceremonies are taking place to recognise the achievements of almost 180 students across Henley’s Master of Business Administration (MBA), Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), Masters and postgraduate diploma/certificate programmes.
During their time with us our MBA students alone will have spent some 2,000 hours reading, working in groups, preparing for exams, writing assignments, attending classes and completing the traditional Management Challenge – with graduates from the other programmes spending similar amounts of time and effort on their work.
Henley has one of the longest-running DBA programmes in the UK and it marks a significant milestone today as Andy Stevens becomes its 200th graduate. His research explored the sporting and financial performance of Premier League football clubs.
Today is also a special day for Henley’s international campuses, with the largest group of students in the last decade graduating from Germany, and the largest ever group of graduates in the history of Henley Business School Finland and in Malta.
This year Henley Africa was ranked No.1 MBA business school in South Africa for the second year running in the PMR awards, and we now have the largest MBA scholarship programme in Africa.
Professor John Board, Dean of Henley Business School, said:
“Congratulations to all of our graduates this year. We hope they enjoy this day and are proud of what they have achieved; the scope of their hard work and efforts cannot be underestimated.
“As their careers, and lives, develop in whichever place, industry or style they choose, we hope that they will give others the benefit of their experiences at Henley, and that they continue to keep in touch.”
After the ceremonies, programme members will celebrate and reflect on their Henley experience with family, academics and support staff at reception events.
Our graduates now join a global community of over 80,000 alumni in more than 160 countries worldwide, reflecting Henley’s standing as a truly international business school.
