In this year’s Financial Times ranking, the Henley Executive MBA (EMBA) was again the highest ranked EMBA programme available in Finland. The competition among the world’s highest-ranking EMBAs is intense and we are proud to be continuously ranked among the best hundred EMBA programmes in the world. The Henley EMBA is now ranked 58th in the world and 22nd in Europe.
The Financial Times ranking is a comprehensive guide for prospective MBA students that lists the world’s top 100 business schools. It covers a range of criteria on careers progress, teaching and content quality to enable comparison of potential institutions and courses.
Alongside learning the foundations of managing a business, dealing with change and further developing leadership skills, personal and professional development is a key area of focus on our EMBA programme and continues as a theme throughout the length of study. Our investment and support for students in this area is reflected in these results:
Careers progress: 21st in Europe
Aims achieved: 14th in Europe
Percentage salary increase: 18th in Europe
Salary increase (pre-MBA to 3 years post-study): Average 56%
Our deliberately small class sizes enable programme members to share their own work experience, challenges and learning which provides a more relevant study experience to each individual. In addition, different assignments focus on developing current organisational issues and challenges, allowing students to take away contextually relevant knowledge and solutions.
As champions of diversity and helping women to develop their leadership potential, we are also particularly proud to see strong results in this area:
Percentage of female faculty: No. 2 in Europe
Percentage of women students: No. 1 in Europe
We are renowned for our academic and student diversity, which provides our learners with access to a range of insights and knowledge from across the world, different cultures and genders, and adds to the quality of their overall learning experience.
The Financial Times ranking is based on data collected from business schools and their alumni.
