The Henley Flexible Executive MBA


A triple accredited (AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB) globally recognised MBA programme for experienced managers looking to develop their management competencies. This programme is ideal if you are unable to take significant time out of the workplace to study and want greater flexibility over how, when and where you achieve your MBA qualification. The programme is structured to allow you to continue to work full-time and to study your MBA part-time (through weekend workshops approximately once every two months) connecting your learning to current global and relevant organisational issues.

The Henley Flexible Executive MBA is a part-time programme delivered through a blend of face-to-face workshops, activities involving peer group learning in teams and self study, on and off line. Over the 30 months of the programme, individuals study and share experiences with like-minded professionals from a wide variety of managerial backgrounds and business industries. The programme has a number of aims:

  • Developing a strategic, holistic and integrated perspective of business, organisations and management
  • Integrating theory and practice through an approach that combines academic rigour with practitioner relevance
  • Providing personal development opportunities to support individuals' development of management capability and capacity to work in and lead teams in different situations.
