The Henley experience
Henley has two spectacular campuses in the UK, each designed to provide the optimal learning and development experience. Greenlands campus, on the banks of the river in Henley-on-Thames, is the ideal place to reflect and to be inspired. Our Executive and Flexible Executive MBA activities are based here. Whiteknights, in Reading, is a thriving, dynamic knowledge hub, making it the ideal location for our Full-time MBA. On both campuses we place great importance on your personal development with support and business coaching. You learn with a diverse international peer group in workshops and individually. You also work collaboratively in high-performing learning teams on company projects designed to address specific challenges within business. The Henley experience is highly interactive with many opportunities to network and build relationships. It helps you understand why our international alumni include some of the world’s most influential and inspiring business leaders. Outside of the UK, Henley Business School operates in 17 countries, with offices in Finland, Germany, Hong Kong and South Africa – plus established partnerships in Ireland, Malta, Denmark and Trinidad, we can offer our students a truly international experience.
At Henley, personal development is woven into the fabric of the MBA and is an assessed module complemented by four interactive workshops. We take a wholeperson approach, which means we begin by acknowledging the complexity of balancing work, home, study and career, as well as planning for the challenge to engage with the world that will come with a senior management role. Reflection, dialogue and goal-setting are at the heart of personal development at Henley. Personal development is the first activity on the programme and over three stages the module gradually explores the themes of perspective, relationships and purpose in ever-widening contexts. You will be surprised just how much you can learn about yourself when you learn how to listen to and share with each other and your management experience plays just as important a role in this aspect of the MBA as it does in any other. The ability to find personal fulfilment whilst also driving wealth creation for organisations and communities, all with character and integrity, requires self-awareness and humility. The central message is that this is a personal journey in search of the better question, not the better answer.
We understand that one of your key motivations for taking the Henley MBA is to accelerate your career. For those of you who are self-sponsored you are probably rethinking your career direction, so work starts from day one on career planning. It is so vital we have placed it at the heart of the programme. Henley’s career service provides a number of workshops to help develop the skills required to promote yourself during and after your MBA.
You will have the opportunity to access our Career Development Services, including: nn Access to career coaches nn Access to our networking portal, HENLEYnetworker, a dedicated career networking and recruitment platform nn The opportunity to choose a mentor nn One-to-one coaching sessions nn Specialist career support nn Industry or recruitment networking events nn Dedicated career workshops nn Access to our online career library and databases.
