Financial Times increases Henley rankings for Executive Education

This year’s Financial Times Executive Education 2023 ranking sees Henley rated again as one of the world’s top business schools, placing in the top three in the UK, top 20 in Europe and top 20 in the world overall.

Henley’s custom programmes, tailored to an organisation’s individual requirements and co-designed with our clients, performed particularly well - up three places in the world rankings to number 25, and up two places to number 16 in Europe. In the UK, Henley also maintained a leading position, placing at number three for a second year running.

Designed to empower learners to increase their personal impact and organisation performance, Henley’s open programmes continue to place highly in the UK with a ranking of no.3, as well as ranking within the top 20 in Europe and top 25 in the world.

Henley’s mission to advocate for equity, diversity and inclusion is reflected in its clean sweep for faculty diversity, taking the top position in the UK, Europe and the world for its open and custom programmes. Henley's custom programmes are also ranked no.1 in the UK and no.2 in the world and in Europe respectively for international clients.

75 schools from around the world were ranked by the FT in 2023, with clients’ satisfaction scores determining 80% of the total ranking. Other factors such as teaching methods, follow-up (a measure of the level of follow up offered to participants after their return to their workplaces) and aims achieved were also taken into account, with Henley placing at no.3 in the UK in all three areas across its open and custom programmes.

Karis Burton, Head of Corporate Development at Henley Business School, said: “This is an incredible achievement. The FT rankings demonstrate that Henley remains a world class business school providing leading executive education programmes that deliver business education for impact and change. I’d like to congratulate all of my Henley colleagues for such an amazing effort.”

Professor George Alexandridis, Director of Teaching & Learning Strategic Projects at Henley Business School, said: “For 75 years, Henley has been developing confident and resilient leaders through our internationally recognised programmes and innovative teaching. These rankings are testament to the hard work of our faculty, programme directors, programme administrators and client-facing teams in ensuring our clients and learners develop the skills and mindset needed to make an impact in these challenging times.”
