Henley’s Executive MBA in the world’s top 70

Henley’s Executive MBA (EMBA) has been listed among the top 70 business schools in the world according to the Financial Times EMBA ranking 2020. In this year’s Financial Times ranking, the Henley EMBA remains also the highest ranked EMBA programme available in Finland.

The Financial Times ranking serves as a comprehensive guide for prospective MBA students and covers a range of criteria on careers progress, school diversity, research and corporate social responsibility to enable comparison of potential institutions and courses.

This year’s ranking, published today, highlights the diversity of students and faculty which characterise Henley Business School’s EMBA, with strong positions in these areas.

Henley places No. 13 in the world for percentage of international students (75%), and No. 35 in the world for international faculty (59%). The diversity of students taking up Henley’s MBA offering has been further boosted by the international cohort on our Executive MBA – Global, with two intakes a year, which includes overseas immersion study trips and the chance to work with NGOs/charities or start-ups abroad.

As a business school championing women in leadership, we are delighted to see Henley placed No. 4 in the world for percentage of women full-time faculty (48%), as well as in the world top 20 for percentage of women students (38%).

When it comes to career progress, Henley is placed within the European top 25 and world top 50 – evidencing the quality of our programme content, and careers and professional development service. The rewards of programme participants’ success are also reflected in high salary increases that graduates command three years after completing their EMBA – the FT calculates an average increase of 44%.

World top 50 and European top 30 positions were also awarded for corporate social responsibility, based on the proportion of core courses dedicated to corporate social responsibility, ethics, social and environmental issues.
Overall the ranking places Henley in the world top 70 (No. 66) and European top 40 (No. 32) business schools for the EMBA this year.

Dr Anne Dibley, Programme Director for the Henley MBA, said:
“Our EMBA’s global perspective and focus on responsible leadership enable us to develop outstanding business leaders ready to take on challenges and shape opportunities in today’s fast-moving and complex world. We are very proud of the international diversity of our student body and our world-class faculty, and our continued success in attracting women onto our EMBA – Global programme. Supported by Henley’s faculty, staff and an experienced and diverse group of peers, our programme members develop the skills, and competences needed to achieve their career aspirations, whatever those aspirations may be.”
