No. 1 UK EMBA in Hong Kong – Henley challenges US domination of Economist MBA rankings


As Henley Business School is celebrating its 70th year anniversary as the first business school in the UK, Henley Executive MBA has been recognised as world’s number 36 and remaining strongly placed in the top 10 best schools in Europe, in the Economist ranking traditionally dominated by the big US schools.

Henley has been delivering executive and MBA programmes in Hong Kong for 30 years.The Henley Flexible Executive MBA in Asia allows busy executivesto gain a world-class MBA with personal and professional development, and global networking opportunities. It combines online study, group work and nine weekend face-to-face workshops in two years (the first one in the UK and others in Hong Kong).

Henley scores impressively well in the following criteria used by the Economist to compare schools.  Henley is also among an elite group of business schools – the top 1% in the world – to be triple-accredited for the quality and capability of our faculty and output.

Top 5 worldwide for student quality – as measured in part by the work and management experience students bring to their cohort and is a fundamental ingredient in the syndicated learning method pioneered by Henley: the quality of learning at Henley is enhanced through a diverse group of students sharing their considerable and varied experiences and cultural differences.

Number 12 in the world for strength of network – Henley’s alumni network now numbers in excess of 60,000 in 150 countries and has been developed over its 70 year history. It is a truly unique resource drawn upon by students and graduates to connect with new opportunities for academic and career development throughout their lives.

Number 17 in the world for percentage increase in salary on graduation, is really good news for Henley graduates.
