You will learn about the basic business aspects of managing an organisation, such as managing people, operations and finance. This stage is about developing a strong foundation across a range of business functions.

In this stage, you will gain a greater knowledge of stakeholder management and the context around the business choices needed to form a robust strategy.
Stage 3: Taking Leadership to a Higher Level (Master’s degree)

Your Global Support Network – In and Beyond the Programme

Collaboration across industries, functional backgrounds and specialisms is a key aspect of learning in the Henley Executive MBA – Global. To foster this exchange, you collaborate at three levels:
Your 'Regional Home Network'
Every student chooses a home campus from the Henley campuses in Munich, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Henley in the UK. At this home campus, they study roughly have of the programme (32 days). In Munich, workshops are usually delivered Thursday to Sunday at the Henley Germany Campus at Maximilianstraße 40 in downtown Munich. In these workshops, about 15 students gather for intense workshops. These deliberately small class sizes ensure individual attention and highly interactive sessions. Currently, the Munich-based programmes bring together professionals from 15 countries.
Your 'European Network'
The regional workshops are complemented by workshops where the students from Munich meet with their peers from Copenhagen, Finland and the UK in joint workshops with 60 students. These take place in the UK (4+7 days), Copenhagen (4 days), South Africa (7 days) and China/United States (7 days) and allow for rich and intensive international and intercultural experiences.
Your Alumni Network
From day one of the programme, our students join Henley’s alumni network of more than 76.000 alumni worldwide. They have access to expertise, experience and fun people for both work and leisure. The connectivity among alums is assured through Henley’s online community Henley Live.
