The Henley Executive MBA (EMBA) is a part-time master’s degree programme delivered through individual and group study, face-to-face workshops and 24/7 e-learning resources.
The programme consists of three key stages (90 ECTS) with an optional award structure on successful completion of each stage:
Stage 1: Business Fundamentals (Certificate)
You will learn about the basic business aspects of managing an organisation, such as managing people, operations and finance. This stage is about developing a strong foundation across a range of business functions.
Stage 2: Strategy & Context – Managing Stakeholders (Diploma)
In this stage, you will gain a greater knowledge of stakeholder management and the context around the business choices needed to form a robust strategy.
Stage 3: Taking Leadership to a Higher Level (Master’s degree)
You will examine the complexities of change in organisations and how to influence and lead a company through them.
The programme places emphasis on general leadership concepts, which is why the Personal Development module flows through all stages of the Henley EMBA allowing an integrated process towards personal growth.
The workshops, most of which are delivered in Helsinki, are conducted by our world-class faculty members from the UK and International Fellow Network. During your studies, you will write nine individual assignments, designed to enhance your long term effectiveness. The assignments provide eye-opening opportunities to integrate theory with practice and can be applied immediately with maximum impact in the workplace.
The Henley EMBA is arranged around ten core study modules that deliver a comprehensive and wide-ranging framework for your studies:
In addition, there are a range of elective modules that allow you to specialise, an applied business or in-company project, an international study visit as well as a self-reflection study visit.
The EMBA programme starts twice a year, in March and October, and is targeted to last 24 months with the possibility for extension up to 7 years.
