Henley’s Executive MBA in the World’s top 100

FT Exec MBA 2019 v2 mtime20191118122322

Henley’s flagship Executive MBA has been listed as among the top 100 business schools in the world according to the Financial Times Executive MBA ranking 2019.

The ranking serves as a comprehensive guide for prospective MBA students and covers a range of criteria on careers progress, school diversity, research and corporate social responsibility to enable comparison of potential institutions and courses.

Personal and professional development is a key area of focus on our global Executive MBA programme. Henley was one of the pioneers in embedding personal development in its Executive MBA and it remains a cornerstone of our programme to this day. Our investment and support for students in this area is reflected in the results, being ranked in the top 20 in Europe for careers progress and % salary increase with Henley EMBA graduates benefiting from an average salary increase of 55% from pre-MBA to three years after graduation.

We are proud to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally. We put great value on the ethics, awareness and integrity of those who study at Henley which can be demonstrated in the work with charities and NGOs that our MBA students are involved with in South Africa as part of their course, spending time in the townships and local communities and making a real difference to people and businesses. The rankings include a measure for teaching hours dedicated to corporate social responsibility (CSR), ethics, social and environmental issues and we are pleased to see this reflected in the following result:

  • Corporate Social Responsibility: No.6 in the UK, no.20 in Europe, no.37 in the World.

Since October we offer our global Executive MBA students an enhanced international experience with multi-campus programme delivery across the UK and its international campuses in Germany, Denmark and Finland, featuring a global syllabus, immersive overseas study experiences and innovative teaching based on live projects.

Our global Executive MBA brings together a diverse group of experienced and talented business leaders in a unique learning context, blending global perspective with local relevance led by inspiring faculty and practitioners. It includes experiential learning opportunities where participants work on challenges prevalent in emerging markets at Henley’s long-established campus in South Africa, and experience first-hand interaction with cutting edge innovation start-ups in the USA and with entrepreneurial and fast-growing firms in China.

As champions of diversity and helping women to develop their leadership potential through initiatives such as our Women in Leadership scholarship, we are also particularly proud to see strong results in this area:

  • Percentage of female faculty: No.1 in the UK and Europe, and no.2 in the World
  • Percentage of women students: No.2 in the UK, no.12 in Europe and no.28 in the World.

Our innovative global Executive MBA builds on and enhances Henley’s flagship Executive MBA, a popular and long-standing programme which has been taught at the Business School’s prestigious Greenlands Campus on the River Thames for over 50 years.
