Henley Business School

Helping our client partners become exceptional is at the heart of everything we do.

But ‘The Henley Way’ is much more than a set of principles. It is ingrained in our spirit and fundamental to our purpose and heritage, characterising the way we work with our customers to deliver exceptional performance.

Henley delivers programmes which stimulate, inspire, engage and transform, covering:

  • leadership
  • strategic management
  • coaching
  • HR
  • SMEs

as well as customised programmes which address the specific challenges of a group of leaders or managers within an organisation.

A heritage of excellence
Henley was the UK’s first business school, and continues to lead the way, being one of just 59 business schools in the world to be accredited by the governing bodies in the UK, Europe and the US.
Last year, over 3,000 participants attended programmes at Henley, and as part of the University of Reading, the quality of our research and teaching is ranked in the top 1% worldwide. There are 60,000 registered alumni – from just about every country – creating a unique network.
From our undergraduate courses, through post-graduate, world-class MBAs, masters and doctorates, to the application of leading edge thinking into the leadership and strategies of some of the world’s biggest organisations, Henley leads.

Henley is, by any measure, an extraordinary place
Our Greenlands campus, set in beautiful grounds alongside the River Thames, gives programme participants the space, time and environment to think deeply about themselves and the challenges they face. Time and time again, this is cited as being the catalyst for individual lightbulb moments and collective epiphanies.
And this heritage works in perfect harmony with the sense of innovation and forward thinking of our cutting-edge research facilities.

Exceptional learning, sans frontieres
The Henley story is not bound by national borders; we have offices and campuses in 16 countries, from Malaysia to South Africa, from Finland to Dubai, from India to Hong Kong.
And even within our UK campuses, we have 150 faculty members representing 18 countries, working alongside students from more than 100 nations. Henley is a global player.

Research and expertise
Research at Henley’s 14 internationally-recognised research centres is both pure and applied, not only predicting the future, but shaping it. The faculty comprises world leading experts and widely published academics. Many are active practitioners in their field, giving participants access to business insights and expertise.

Henley’s exceptional range of business and coaching programmes
Our unique portfolio of programmes delivers the insights, tools and techniques needed to create an inspirational learning experience. But the real difference at Henley is that every programme is crafted to be memorable, interactive, personal and focused.
And every cohort brings together a diverse group of individuals to create a lifelong network.

Leadership programmes
Realise your potential and maximise your capability for inspiring positive change in those around you, and bring real value to your organisation. Gain a real sense of personal achievement, and be regarded as a person of integrity and authority. Deal with new challenges courageously and confidently, communicate more effectively, and discover your true self through objective feedback and one-to-one coaching.
Our latest addition, The Board Directors’ Programme, will prepare you for the obligations and expectations of the boardroom like no other programme in the UK.

Strategic Management programmes
Henley’s programmes are acknowledged as world-class learning experiences for new and aspiring leaders, right through to senior business architects in global corporations.
Advanced Management Practice, our flagship programme, covers organisational change, strategy development and innovation, culture, power and politics – all focused on improving personal and collective performance.

Exceptional coaching development
Increasingly, Henley is regarded as a world centre of excellence for coaching.
As a new or existing coach, you’ll acquire the structure, theory, practical experience and formal accreditations – through the Professional Certificate and the MSc programme – to enhance your effectiveness and gain a real competitive advantage.

And so much more
New programmes for HR professionals and our innovative programme options for SME owners are proving to be increasingly popular, recognising their rapidly growing influence.
So as thousands of business leaders have already learned, whatever you want to achieve and however exceptional you aspire to be, Henley will get you there.
