“In recent years, Henley Business School has significantly increased the open programme offering in Finland, and delivered successful customised programmes to Finnish clients,” says Annu Matula, Managing Director of Henley Business School in Finland. “We are very proud that we can offer world-class executive education programmes to the Finnish market, whether it is degree, open or customised programmes.”

“Internationally operating Finnish companies require access to the best know-how when renewing their management culture and developing their ability to innovate. Over the past years, the management and leadership requirements have changed dramatically, and therefore companies need topical education that quickly produces new skills and thinking.”

We are proud to be a top-quality partner for our clients, and we believe that our services will help Finnish companies to become even more successful in the fierce international competition.”
