Henley Business School launches new Themed MBAs

Henley Executive MBA applicants can from this year choose to take advantage of the exceptional scope of expertise across Henley Business School through a range of newly launched themed MBAs.

These themed MBAs are designed for experienced, practising managers who are looking for a world renowned general management MBA but with a particular application to three different industries - Corporate Finance, Construction Management and Real Estate.

Three MBA themes will be delivered by the Henley Business School's ICMA Centre, School of Real Estate and Planning and the University of Reading's School of Construction Management. Participants will study as part of the executive MBA programme following the core curriculum whilst periodically studying tailored modules bespoke to their subject theme at approriate points in time.

Associate Professor Susan Rose, The Associate Head of the School of Management responsible for The Henley MBA said 'I am delighted to work in collaboration with colleagues of the Henley Business School and The University of Reading who have such strong industry connections and reputations in their respective fields. This enables us to offer MBA participants something really different. The themed programmes provide the best of both worlds for those who want general managerial development whilst applying it to the very specific challenges of their sector and thereby demonstrating commitment to their organisation.'

The Henley Executive MBA is a two year part-time programme aimed at aspiring senior managers who wish to develop their management competency as well as focus on their own personal development, alongside their full-time employment.

Capitalism is high on the political agenda. Like coffee it seems to come in a bewildering number of varieties. Some politicians like it "responsible" others "moral" and still others "popular". While some argue that it is time for shareholders to wield real power, others feel that that certain shareholders, notably hedge funds should sit on their hands, at least if they have bought shares after a takeover has been announced. Out on the streets the tents of the "occupy" protectors may be under threat but many are sympathetic to the view that bankers and board members have been rewarded for taking too many risks with other people's money.

Infrastructure Funding, Finance and Institutional Investment - a new guide by Professor Brian Scott-Quinn

28 August 2015
Infrastructure is the new buzzword in finance these days even though infrastructure has been important at least since the days when the Romans built their roads across Britain and Europe. The difference today is that increasingly the government says it cannot finance such infrastructure - roads, railways, power generation, telecoms, airports etc. The telecoms industry is already completely privately owned in most countries as are an increasing number of airports across the world. But governments everywhere are now looking ever more to public private partnerships (PPPs) to provide the annual funding (the annual revenues required to service bank loan and bond interest payments and capital repayments and equity dividends) as well as the actual financing (the arranging of bank loans, bond issues and equity share issues) to provide the cash up-front.
