Founded in 1945 in response to a unique and previously unidentified need to train managers for greater responsibility, Henley Business School has led a transformation in attitudes and education which has taken decades and with an outlook on how business continues to evolve throughout the 21st century – truly created by business for business.
Henley Business School is known for transforming individuals and organisations – through expert teaching, results-oriented partnerships and cutting-edge research. The Financial Times ranking results place Henley Business School continuously in the top 25 in the world for executive education programmes.
Our programmes allow individuals the time and space to reflect and develop skills, capabilities and behaviours. At Henley, the drive to unlock potential and help deliver exceptional performance is at the heart of everything we do.
The Henley approach is highly practical, collaborative and academically rigorous. A blend of coaching, experiential learning and practitioner support and insight are underpinned by academic theory and research.
We develop confident leaders and professionals who are able to take a fresh perspective and have the energy, capability and resilience to ensure that they and their organisations are successful.
Our Boardroom programmes give a real view of what it means to be an effective board member. In addition to the necessary technical knowledge, you learn how to engage fully with all stakeholders and add sustainable value to your business.

But what is the work life relevance of academic research skills? How can I benefit from the research experience in my everyday work?
