Henley Business School has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Business School of the Year’ category in the Times Higher Education Awards (THE).
The THE Awards attract hundreds of entries and recognise the innovation, talent and dedication of School employees and teams during the 2013-14 academic year.
Exceptional performance through bold and creative strategies and initiatives in areas including innovation, research, student experience, teaching, alumni relations and working with the business world were the criteria that the judges were looking for.
Henley met the judging criteria on the following fields:
- Development of the Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship: Creation of a new business development/entrepreneur in residence role. This led to the introduction of the IDEAFEST Student Business Competition, the Student Business Incubator and a Forum for SMEs
- Extension of Henley South Africa’s reach: Including a focus on the black African community and continuation of MBAid, a social engagement project where MBAs act as consultants to NGOs
- Launch of the BA Accounting programme with Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT): Taught by both BIT and Henley Faculty and based in China, this course is unique in having received government backing right from the start
- Highly complimentary EQUIS report: Highlighting our strength in ethics and social responsibility
- Research Excellence Framework (REF) results: Notably our top 10 ranking for Impact in Business and Management
- Financial Times Ranking results: Placing Executive Education in the world’s top 30
This year’s results will be announced at an awards ceremony on the evening of Thursday 26 November in London. For more information visit the Times Higher Education Awards website.
