World Top 20 for Executive Education - Henley Business School Suomessa

Henley Business School Executive Education programmes ranked in world top 20 by Financial Times

The continued improvement in quality and impact (35 in 2014, 29 in 2015, 20 in 2016) of the Henley Executive Education offering has resulted in substantial rises in its position amongst the best business schools in the world. The combined FT results (combining Custom and Open programmes) place Henley 20th in the world, 12th in Europe and 4th in the UK and 1st in the Nordics.

Open programmes ranked number 22 in the world, UK no. 3 and 10th in Europe

Henley achieved improved scores in every measure used by clients to evaluate its programmes, including world top 20 positions for Aims achieved, Course design, Teaching methods & materials, Faculty quality, New skills & learning.

Custom programmes ranked number 33 in the world.

Henleyโ€™s scores include world no. 12 position in follow up effectiveness and position no. 6 in the world for international clients. The FT asks clients to rate aspects of the learning experience including Value for money, Teaching methods and Faculty quality. Henley scored particularly high for two measures considered by its clients to be key to delivering effectiveness in the workplace and a high return on investment.

Henley is placed 6th in the world for international clients.

The FT collected the feedbacks from Henley Business Schoolโ€™s clients in 6 countries including the UK, Finland, China, South Africa, Germany and AE. The clients include Roche Pharmaceuticals, Danone, Bank of China, South African Broadcasting Corporation, UPM and ING bank.

Steve Ludlow, Head of Executive Education at Henley comments:

We are proud that the rankings show the quality of what we do at Henley but what really excites us is the impact that we make on the participants and the organisations that we partner with, so the improvement in our rankings around ‘aims achieved’ is particularly pleasing. The ongoing recognition of our international business is also encouraging and reflects the success of our South Africa campus and the Henley activities at the new University of Reading Malaysia campus. In the UK we are investing further through the construction of new high quality hotel accommodation at our famous Greenlands site as well as focusing on learning technologies that will help us to deliver our programmes in a more flexible and ‘blended’ way. With these and other developments, we are really excited about the year ahead.”
