Henley among the world’s best in the Financial Times Executive MBA ranking 2014
This world-class positioning testifies to Henley’s on-going commitment to deliver on the School’s ambition: We empower individuals to become great professionals and outstanding business leaders.
Henley’s Executive MBA has risen on many key measures in the Financial Times MBA ranking, including career progress, learning experience, research quality, faculty and diversity. This rankings performance is positive recognition of the impact of our work.
Career progress – world top 10 for aims achieved (No. 1 in the UK), top 20 for salary increase (No. 3 in the UK)
Reflecting Henley’s focus on personal development and professional impact, the ‘aims achieved’ measure has improved in each ranking since 2008, rising 40 places in that time and resulting this year in the Executive MBA achieving top place in the UK.
Its graduates continue to pave their way to success, showing an improvement of 5 places for ‘career progress’ and a world top 20 position when comparing pre and post MBA salaries. In the UK the Executive MBA was awarded third position in this measure.
Internationalism – students, faculty and board achieve improved positions
Henley Business School rose up the rankings in all 3 measures related to the breadth and depth of its international credentials. A truly international business school, Henley now has campuses and offices in 16 countries and an alumni network that spreads across 157 countries.
Research quality – advances made in all 3 research/idea generation criteria
The FT measures the number of PhD and DBA graduates, the percentage of faculty with doctoral degrees, and the number of research papers published. Henley demonstrated significant progress in these areas, including a big jump to 33rd spot in the world for its number of doctoral graduates.
Diversity – number 5 in the world for women faculty, number 11 for female students
Henley continues achieving balance at the highest level, not just in terms of the percentage of female students and faculty, but also in representation on its governing board.
Top 10 in the UK
Given the progress made on the world stage, it’s not surprising that the UK results are equally positive
- number 1 for graduate aims achieved
- number 1 for % of women faculty
- number 2 for % of women students
- number 3 for salary increase
- number 4 for the number of PhD and DBA graduates
Professor John Board, Dean, Henley Business School, comments: "These results make highly encouraging reading and mirror a similar story told by the Economist rankings published just last week. They reflect the enormous hard work and dedication of our students, faculty and staff and confirm our reputation as one of the world’s leading players in global business education – something we have been providing for the last 70 years. We will not rest on our laurels and continue to build upon our successes, enhancing our MBA portfolio in breadth, depth and quality."
