Henley ranked in UK top five

We are delighted to see Henley Business School placed in the UK top five in the FT Global Masters in Finance 2020 ranking, with strong positions for school diversity and career progress.

Our overall position rose across the board this year, which sees us ranked as follows:

  • No.5 in the UK (up three places from 2018, when the ranking was last published)
  • No.31 in Europe (up three places)
  • No.36 in the world (up five places)

Henley topped the UK table for percentage of female faculty (47% of full-time faculty are women), placing at no.2 in the world – evidence of our commitment to championing diversity and women in leadership. We placed no.8 in the world and no.7 in the UK for both percentage of international students (94%) and percentage of female students (54%), as well as no.20 in the world and no.9 in the UK for percentage of international faculty (59%).

Our career progress positions are strong, with Henley placing in the world top 30 and UK top 10 for careers service (no.29 and no.7 respectively), the world top 25 and UK top 10 for career progress* (no.24 and no.6 respectively), and the world top 30 and UK top five for salary percentage increase* (no.26 and no.4 respectively).

We also rank in the world top 30 and UK top five for international course experience (no.28 and no.4 respectively), with this year’s ranking including for the first time students who participated in a study trip to Greece, taking a course on Fintech and Digital Transformation in Financial Services and taking part in a digital banking challenge.

Professor George Alexandridis, Head of Pre-Experience Postgraduate Programmes, said:

“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.”
