The FT ranks Henley Business School among the best in the world image

We empower individuals to become great professionals and outstanding business leaders who think with clarity and act with confidence and conviction.

Our strength lies in our approach. We enable people to better understand themselves and their responsibilities while at the same time blending the practice and theories of successful business.

We will be an engaging, focused and distinctive business school.

Henley Business School Ambition Statement 2012

It is our continual aim to keep Henley Business School among the best of the best on the international stage. Which is why we are delighted to share the findings of the latest Financial Times annual report on non-degree executive education programmes.

The report shows that we have improved our positions in three rankings just released (one each for open and custom programmes and the third being a combined ranking), confirming that Henley Business School continues to go from strength to strength.

Now placed above many top global business schools 

We now feature in the top 40 globally and in the top 20 across Europe. This puts us in the same tier across the rankings as UCLA, Kellogg, Erasmus Rotterdam, St Gallen Switzerland and MIT Sloan in the US.

Improvements across the board 

A strong endorsement comes from the fact that our custom rankings show further improvements in 7 out of 10 measures assessed by clients, including Programme Design, Faculty, Teaching Methods and Materials, Aims Achieved and New Skills.

Particularly significant is our rise of 18 places up the rankings for Future Use, the fact that corporate clients find our methods and delivery of such high value that they are planning to use Henley again for future development of senior talent.

Participants on our open programmes place us around the top 10 in Europe for new skills and learning, course design, materials and quality of peer group.

International recognition 

We have always sought to be a truly international business school. We've welcomed the best minds from around the globe, as students and as staff, and embedded an international approach at the core of our activities. This approach is borne out by our custom programmes ranking within the top 10 in Europe for both attracting international clients and delivering our programmes overseas.

Realising ambitions 

This year’s Financial Times rankings show that we are among the very best; confirm what we are doing right, and help focus our drive for continued improvement.
