We develop responsible leaders for today's fast-changing business world. Henley offers two study routes to achieving our world-class MBA:

Executive MBA - Global
An immersive study journey via Henley-based, in-person modules, online workshops and practical study visit overseas, which brings you significant leadership development and career focus, and rich international networking experiences. This programme has a unique focus on enabling personal and professional development, with extensive opportunities for executive coaching throughout the programme.

The programme has a special focus on responsible leadership, through the South Africa immersion visit where students work in teams on challenges facing NGOs. In addition, students have the opportunity to deepen global understanding through the US immersion visit, working in international groups on challenges facing emerging international businesses. There are opportunities for networking with the diverse, international cohort in every stage of the programme.

Executive MBA - Flexible
An efficient programme experience; gain an outstanding MBA over 27 months total with short in-person modules at Henley approximately every two months.

Whichever route you choose, you’ll graduate having worked alongside outstanding faculty and peers - leveraging academic and practitioner business insights. You will gain the focus, confidence, and gravitas to make an impact, tackle challenges, and lead authentically.

Both Executive MBA routes:
  • are part-time for study alongside a demanding career
  • have core study modules and elective options for personalisation
  • give practical business skills and knowledge for immediate application
  • provide opportunities for personal development and for long term professional growth
  • give exceptional learning in an extraordinary business school location, an hour from London and set beside the River Thames
  • benefit from peer-to-peer collaborative learning and a global community of over 87,000 alumni.
