Executive MBA or MBA – what should I consider?

Commitment to and costs of the programmes

This is the second part of a mini-series in which we take a closer look at the Executive MBA and MBA. After showing the differences between the programmes, we now come to factors that should be considered when studying one of the programmes.

What to consider when studying the Henley Executive MBA Global?

As always, it is important to inform yourself before studying a programme with any school. Henley’s tradition in developing the leadership of the future, both with academic rigour as well as insightful personal development has proven to be one of the best programmes in the world and the reputation of the Henley MBA is recognised world-wide.

Potential candidates to the Henley Executive MBA Global are often concerned about adding to their busy full-time work schedules. The programme certainly is challenging and will require commitment. At the same time and with the necessary motivation, the Henley Executive MBA Global is designed to fit into a working schedule. With its on-point applicability, the curriculum can and should be integrated into work projects. Programme participants are asked to use the theory learned during the workshops and apply it into their working routines, where they experience first-hand the transformative aspects of the programme.

The workshops on the Global programme follow a 6-week module rhythm, starting with some pre-workshop tasks, working through the workshop (the German programme runs its workshops usually from Thursdays to Sundays to limit time away from work), and then blend the learning with online resources to write personal assignments.

What does it cost?

The Henley Executive MBA Global costs €46.500 for the full period. This includes all tuition, as well as accommodation and meals during workshop days.

While we see many participants paying for the programme themselves, in many cases participants’ employers participate in supporting their employees, either financially, by giving extra time or providing specific case-studies within the organization to work on. Henley works with many employers on a regular basis to bring newest learning into the organisations. In some cases, such employers also book entire intakes (8 – 15 participants) for themselves exclusively to further educate their management teams.

Next week we will answer one of the most important questions regarding the MBA and EMBA – how do you profit from that? For any further questions and information, please contact Christoph.Raudonat@henleybschool.de
