How we teach you

The Henley Executive MBA - Global offers a unique personal and professional development experience, giving you the tools and opportunity to reflect on and refine your personal and professional goals, and the skills to become a responsible leader in today’s fragile, global world. You will apply leading edge thinking to ‘live’ projects in your business and internationally, from innovative, hi-tech start-ups in the US to NGOs in South Africa.

This multi-campus EMBA brings together a hand-picked, diverse group of experienced and talented business leaders in a unique learning context, blending a global perspective with local relevance, led by inspiring faculty and practitioners. Local workshops are combined with mixed multi-national sessions delivered in our Greenlands campus, Henley-on-Thames, near London, UK and our international campuses in Munich, Germany, Copenhagen, Denmark and Helsinki, Finland. A number of global experiential learning opportunities enable participants to work on challenges for NGOs and charities in emerging markets such as South Africa, and experience first-hand interaction with cutting edge innovation start-ups in the USA or with entrepreneurial and fast growing firms in China.

Featuring a global syllabus, multinational cohorts and immersive overseas study experiences ensures this is more than just an Executive MBA.

Connecting people with international business perspectives and local understanding creates more resilient and adaptable leaders and Henley’s emphasis on personal development, research-led applied knowledge and cross-cultural peer-learning creates a rich transformational experience. After successfully completing this programme you will become confident working with complexity and remain calm and assured under pressure.

Our Executive MBA programme has a particularly strong focus on themes of international business, leadership and corporate reputation. There is a real hands-on approach to learning, you work collaboratively with your fellow students and classes are taught by international faculty at the cutting edge of their disciplines.

The global programme combines the best in academic theory with practical, real life projects. This means that as well as having an outstanding learning experience, you will be ready to put it all into practice immediately in the workplace.

At Henley, we recognise that you want to develop yourself to prepare for the challenges of business leadership, so within the programme there is a continuous element of personal development and career development to support you throughout your journey.

Everything above is informed by Henley’s eminent reputation in teaching practising managers and in research excellence and application.



“A particular highlight was our trip to South Africa, where we worked with a local charity and we tried to implement some of our coursework into helping them find practical solutions to some of their issues – that was amazing."
