Henley Business School has retained its top world rankings for both its executive MBA and full-time MBA courses
[UKPRwire, Fri Nov 28 2008] Henley Business School, in separate MBA ranking reports by the Financial Times on executive MBAs and by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) on full-time MBAs, has remained at the top of several categories vital to successful students.
In the Financial Times Executive MBA Rankings, Henley was rated overall in the top 5 in the UK, top 15 in Europe and top 50 globally. For career progression it was rated number 1 in the UK and 5 in the world, with salary increase and attracting women onto the courses also significant results.
In the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Full-Time MBA Rankings, Henley was rated as number 1 in the world for faculty and student quality, personal development and educational experience, potential to network and in the breadth of its alumni network.
Professor Christopher Bones, Dean, said: "This provides external testimony to many of those aspects of our MBA programmes of which we are most proud… we retain some great ranking positions in an increasingly competitive business school market. The team are working hard already to ensure we get even further up the rankings for 2009. The benefits that come from our merger with The University of Reading will help to strengthen our position."
Earlier this year, Henley - then Henley Management College - also received the top score for student rating of programme content in the EIU's first ranking of distance learning MBA courses.
