Engaging with business. Engaging with you.

We want to equip our students with the tools and qualifications to develop and succeed in changing and challenging times.

About us

Founded in 1945, Henley Business School was the first business school in the UK and is one of the oldest and most respected schools in Europe.

We are constantly ranked among the world’s top 50 business schools by the Financial Times and The Economist. We are also among the very few business schools – the top 1% in the world – to be triple-accredited for the quality and capability of our faculty and output.

Henley Business School provides rigorous, challenging and career-oriented programmes that set high standards of learning. You are presented with stimulating concepts and new thinking that is immediately applicable in the workplace. Moreover, you will gain the ability to apply knowledge to real-life situations. The result will be tangible, significant and enduring.

As part of the University of Reading, Henley operates within an academic institution that is placed within the top 1% of all global universities.

Our ambition

We aim to empower individuals to become great professionals and outstanding business leaders who think with clarity and act with confidence and conviction. Our strength lies in our approach. We enable people to better understand themselves and their responsibilities while at the same time blending the practice and theories of successful business.

We always seek to improve upon everything we do and be recognised for:

  • Being a truly international business school
  • The excellence of our learning experience
  • World-class research and thinking
  • Our sense of community and responsibility
  • The strength of our networks
  • The breadth and depth of our relationships with industry

We will be an engaging, focused and distinctive business school.
