“We are very glad to see our finance programmes at the ICMA Centre climbing further to the top five in the UK in this prestigious ranking. This reflects the hard work we have put in to Henley’s suite of Masters programmes aiming to provide a top class student experience, with a strong focus on a practice-oriented curriculum as well as the careers development and aspirations of our students who remain our most important stakeholders.”

Medieval Soldiers online at the ICMA Centre!

4 November 2009
For a brief moment on Tuesday 21st July, the online database of medieval soldiers (http://www.medievalsoldier.org/) hosted at the ICMA Centre, was the news! This database of soldiers serving the English crown between 1369-1454 and including the names of men-at-arms and archers who served at famous battles such as Agincourt in 1415, made the front page of the BBC website, was the most shared site on BBC news online, and interviews were given to BBC Radio Four and 5Live, local radio and even the national radio broadcaster in Canada. Some 250,000 service records are now available to freely search and the database recorded some 125,000 hits on Tuesday alone. The database has gone from strength to strength and this publicity has made the online database extremely popular, and it has now registered 3.5 million hits in just three months - demonstrating the interest of our research to the public at large.
