Financial Times ranks Henley Business School in UK top 10

We are delighted that the Financial Times European Business Schools Ranking 2020 sees Henley Business School maintain a UK top 10 position.

Henley is positioned at No.9 in the overall ranking of UK-based business schools, and is placed among the top 40 European schools in the table (No.38), published today.

We are pleased to retain our No.1 UK position for percentage female full-time faculty (48%), for which we placed at No.10 in Europe. This reflects Henley’s commitment to championing diversity and women in leadership.

The ranking is based on combined results from five individual programme-specific rankings published by the FT in 2020. Highlights from these included:

Executive Education

The Executive Education Ranking saw Henley placed in the world top 25, European top 20 and UK top five for the combined ranking of open and closed programmes (No.24, No.16 and No.5 respectively).

Our Open Programmes were positioned in the UK top five and our Custom Programmes in the top 10 (No.4 and No.6 respectively). Both were also ranked among the top 20 in Europe (No.12 and No.19 respectively).

Executive MBA

This year’s Financial Times Executive MBA Ranking highlighted the diversity of students and faculty which characterise Henley Business School’s EMBA, with strong positions in these areas.

Henley placed top of the table in the UK and No.4 in the world for percentage of women full-time faculty (48%), as well as second in the UK and in the world top 20 for percentage of women students (38%).

We also placed third in the UK and No.13 in the world for percentage of international students (75%), and No.7 in the UK for international faculty (59%).

Professor John Board, Dean of Henley Business School, said:

“We are pleased to see Henley remains recognised as one of the top 10 UK business schools in the Financial Times ranking. Our strong positions for female and international students and faculty are a welcome acknowledgement of our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We were also pleased to see Henley placed among the European top 20 in the Executive Education combined ranking. By studying at Henley we equip our participants with the right knowledge and tools to lay the foundation stones on their journey to a successful career.”
