Employers

Henley is widely recognised for its international reach. We have exceptional talent and we know that for your business to grow effectively, you need to have the right people. As an international business school with over 80,000 alumni from 160 countries, we have a range of students looking for work opportunities. Our students are studying a variety of programmes and are looking for either entry level roles, or more senior roles.

Our students are bright, ambitious and highly proactive and we are proud to support their personal development in this way.

We like to work closely with employers to understand your recruitment requirements and company culture.

If you would like to engage with our students, there are many ways to do so. Below you will find some ways in which you can access Henley talent. The list is not exhaustive and please note that we can customise campaigns and events according to your preferences.

“As the owner of a small boutique consulting organisation I am delighted to say I have worked with three top MBA students this summer on their projects and two are continuing on to support me in my business. Henley Business School is a fantastic academic centre with top talent.”
Chris Astle, CEO, Think Forwards
