Henley Flexible Executive MBA in Asia
The Henley Flexible Executive MBA is a 2 year part-time programme designed for experienced managers and busy executives looking to develop their international management competencies. With a blend of individual and group study, online learning and face-to-face workshops, it is ideal for executives with hectic travel schedules, relocation possibilities and family commitments from around the region because of the great flexibility over how, when and where programme members achieve their MBA qualification. There is a worldwide community of almost 3000 current participants on this programme as well as over 56,000 alumni in 150 countries.
The programme fits around your family, social life, career and other commitments, allowing you to work full-time as you advance through the programme. It is delivered through a blend of online learning, a residential starter workshop in the UK, face-to-face weekend workshops in Hong Kong held three to four times per year, as well as peer group learning team activities, either online or offline. You are then encouraged to utilise the broad range of academic resources and information sources available in Henley’s online learning portal, to take advantage of support offered by a network of Henley-based tutors and to balance further group and individual study with other life commitments. Fitting into your busy schedule, all weekend workshops will be completed within 24 months with a flexible period to complete your management challenge.
The Henley programme is all about practical application. What differentiates our programme from others is our ability to help executives see the holistic side of business whilst examining their own companies and resolving real-life challenges. Learning from the programme is focused on direct application to the workplace, ensuring a high degree of relevancy and practicality for programme members and employers alike. All assignments are based around resolving practical business-related challenges within your organisation. You could apply your new knowledge and put what you learn into practice in your workplace on a day-to-day basis from the very first workshop.
We deliver a truly international MBA programme in one of the world’s great global cities. The programme members, all mid to senior managers, have a chance to work with other experienced executives from many industries and different cultural backgrounds. Around 60% of Henley programme members in Hong Kong are not local to Hong Kong but are from countries like Canada, Germany, Denmark, South Africa, the Philippines and of course the UK. As we focus on exceptionally high-quality interaction and peer group learning, you will also learn different business practices from one of the most culturally diverse groups in Asia. With Henley’s global presence in 17 countries, there are also unique opportunities to attend workshops in international locations including the UK, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Malta, Scandinavia and South Africa. Our Faculty is international, both by passport and by experience. All have extensive commercial expertise, and many continue with private business consultancy to keep them at the cutting edge. This equips programme members with a greater understanding of different working environments and cultures, broadening the scope of their studies by preparing them for global business through international exchange.
At Henley, personal development is woven into the fabric of the programme and is assessed at each stage as a guide to your career and life as your move along your MBA journey. We take a whole person approach, which means we begin by acknowledging the complexity of balancing work, home, study and career, as well as planning for the challenge to engage with the world that will come with a senior management role. Reflection, dialogue and goal-setting are the heart of personal development and are complemented by interactive workshops at each stage of the programme.
