Course content

Henley Business School is known the world over for transforming individuals and organisations through expert teaching, results orientated partnerships and cutting-edge research. Today more than ever, enterprising leaders need more than just knowledge of business tools and techniques to be successful in the complex and fast-moving world in which we live and work. Our programmes seek to develop leaders who are not only aware of this wider dynamic environment and their own organisation’s objectives, but also understand their own styles, strengths and development needs as individuals. Henley Business School holds triple accredited status from the UK, European and US accrediting bodies (AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB). By taking a genuine interest in what drives every participant, Henley inspires people, making them the best they can be. Choosing Henley may be the best business decision you ever make. Since its foundation as one of the UK’s first business schools in 1946, Henley has provided executive education that combines the best of academic knowledge with practical development for aspiring individuals and ambitious organisations. We have a strong heritage but with a clear focus on the contemporary issues shaping our changing world.

• Designed following extensive research into leadership development challenges faced by today’s leaders

• Offers real, tangible opportunities to put leadership knowledge into practice

• Led by staff members with practical experience of current organisational challenges

• Develop your leadership capability through peer group learning, work-based practice and reflection

Our aim at Henley Careers is to empower you to leave the Business School with the confidence to successfully progress your career. We enable you to be proactive in your approach to career planning. We will work with you to help you understand your strengths, as well as identify the obstacles and opportunities around you. Research both at Henley and other leading Business Schools shows that people who are self-reliant and are ˝career-activists˝ usually achieve higher levels of success. We therefore encourage your job search to be driven by you and your needs, but along the way, we provide you with advice and insight regarding your strategy. You will have the opportunity to access our Career Development Services, including:

• In-curricular career development sessions on competence and skills development

• One-to-one career coaching to help you work out where you are going, and how best to achieve your objectives.
