Henley DBA programme reaches milestone 200th graduate
Returning to Henley Business School as a guest at the 2019 Greenlands Graduation brings back fond memories for Professor Ashok Jashapara. He joined what was then Henley Management College in September 1992, as part of the first DBA cohort.
Fast-forward nearly 30 years, and the ceremonies today mark a milestone moment for Henley’s DBA programme. Celebrating amongst the students and business professionals gathered at Greenlands is its 200th graduate, Dr Andy Stevens.
Both took some time ahead of the event today to reflect on their DBA experience.
There are many reasons why Professor Jashapara reflects fondly on his time at Henley – not least the peaceful riverside setting which is perfect for quiet reflection away from the office.
“The comradery among the DBA cohort; everyone helping each other,” he said. “The wealth of expertise and insights from your fellow colleagues. Dialogue over lunch or dinner with faculty colleagues who provided new angles on my work. And the inspiration of my supervisors, particularly when I felt I’d reached a road block or that the mountain was too high to climb.”
Of his return visit, he added: “I come to the graduation day with tremendous pride to see how the DBA programme has blossomed over the years.”
