Henley Business School - 2016 Financial Times Executive MBA ranking - Henley Business School Finland

Henley Business School improves world-class positions in latest Financial Times ranking

For the second year running, Henley Business School rose in the rankings and maintained its position as one of the world’s top 50 business schools in the 2016 FT ranking of the best Executive MBA programmes. Henley Business School is also positioned in the UK’s top 10 and Europe’s top 20 schools.

Of particular note were consistently strong positions achieved in the following key measures:

Salary, career, aims achieved

A world top 25 position for aims achieved is a mark of how well Henley MBAs succeed in achieving their personal and professional goals. The financial rewards also hit a world top 25 position for post MBA percentage salary increases, with average salary increases of 60%.

Diverse and international learning experience

A significant number of international faculty and students, together with a high proportion of female students and faculty (number 1 in the world) means that Henley students benefit from a diverse and international learning experience.

Research quality

A measure of the level and depth of a school’s research is the number of PhD and DBA graduates – Henley Business School is now ranked at number 13 in the world. Research is at the heart of Henley, which is home to 150 specialist faculty, many of whom are internationally-renowned research-led academics – 88% of our full-time faculty hold a PhD degree.

“For 70 years our focus has been to empower individuals to become great professionals and outstanding business leaders who act with integrity and once again this has been recognised in these global rankings. It is gratifying that the quality of the Henley experience and the impact on our participants’ careers is also reflected across other published results this year, including Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Executive Education”, comments Annu Matula, Managing Director of Henley Business School in Finland.

The Financial Times ranking is published on 17 October 2016 and uses 16 measures covering career progress, school diversity and research/ideas generation. The ranking is based on two surveys, one completed by the school and the other by alumni who graduated three years ago.

One of things that sets the Henley Executive MBA apart from other postgraduate programmes is the strong emphasis on personal development. It is great to systematically take time for personal reflection that is not focused on work objectives, but rather on balancing my personal needs with the external demands I’m facing. Identifying and resolving matters that stop you from being a better person are an integral part of the path of any leader who wants to develop.
