We are pleased to see Henley ranked No.5 in the UK for international course experience this year.

“We are delighted that our flagship Masters in Management has been placed again among the leading masters programmes in the world by the FT. In the last few years we have invested further in the student experience and career development of our Masters candidates, which is reflected in our position in the ranking. It is particularly encouraging to see that our MiM programme is now ranked in the top 5 in the UK for graduate career progress and career service, both of which are important criteria for the selection of Masters programmes. As a pioneer in business education we are committed to continue introducing innovations that set our Masters programmes apart, aiming to enhance our students’ employability skills and career prospects.”
