Financial Times Executive Education Ranking 2019

Henley in world top 20 of Executive Education providers

Todayโ€™s Financial Times (FT) Global Executive Education survey places Henley Business School no. 14 in Europe and no. 20 in the world for the combined ranking of open and custom programmes. With this position, Henley Business School remains the leading Executive Education provider located in Finland.

Launched 20 years ago, the FT survey is recognised as the most reliable indicator of the quality of Executive Education provision because it is largely determined by client and participant ratings. Henley is delighted to move from position 23 in 2018 into the global top 20 this year.

Open programmes

Our open programmes focus on the development of individual leaders and professionals. They are highly collaborative, practical and underpinned by academic expertise. They cover four core areas: strategic management, leadership, coaching and people & organisational change.

Our ranking this year is no. 14 in Europe and no. 27 in the world. Participants rated Henley no. 22 in the world for course design and no. 16 for new skills and learning.

Custom programmes

Custom programmes are tailored learning solutions for organisations to support their strategic development and are co-designed with our clients. Henley works with public and private sector organisations in Finland and around the world.

Henleyโ€™s custom programmes rank no. 30 in the world. We are very pleased to improve from position 46 in 2018 into the global top 30 this year. The Financial Times has placed our custom programmes no. 9 in the world for international clients, reflecting Henleyโ€™s international reach.

Clients ranked Henley within the world top 30 for programme design, new skills and learning, and value for money.

Annu Matula, Managing Director of Henley Business School in Finland, comments:

“The FT ranking for Executive Education focuses on the growing number of business school providers around the world, but the increasingly competitive global market for leadership development includes many different types of providers. Consultancies, training companies, professional bodies and corporate academies are all competing with university-based business schools.

To cope with this competition and meet client demands, Henley is investing in innovation. โ€˜Face-to-faceโ€™ learning is still important but this valuable time is now focused on creative and experiential activities that are hard to replicate virtually.

We are pleased that our participants and clients have rated us highly again this year, but we recognise that this investment in innovation is essential if Henley is to continue to be successful.”

The ranking details can be found on the Financial Times website.
