What You Study


The Henley MBA is a journey in three Stages. The First Stage relates to the internal management of an organisation, focusing on specific areas of management like people, processes and finance. The Second Stage relates to business choices - a critical aspect in every manager's life, presenting insights in global environment and strategic direction, strategic marketing and reputation and responsibility touching also on governance aspects. The Third and last Stage of the journey will help transform you into a manager who makes a difference. Here you deal with leadership and change as well as how, as a manager, you build knowledge and apply it in a management role.


In this last Stage you can also chose an elective which in itself carries two options: Option A is an online elective in an area of your choice; Option B is an International Study Visit organised by Henley.


For all the modules you will be required to present your ideas and understanding in the form of a consultation report, answering questions as set out by leading academics working at Henley. Your work will be independently assessed and moderated by international business and academic leaders who form part of Henley's world class team.


At the end of Stage One you will also be required to sit for an examination that relates to a real life situation in business and how you, as a Henley MBA programme member, can distinguish yourself.


During the final Stage you will equip yourself with research approaches: design, review, data collection, analysis and in-depth writing. Through these skills you will generate relevant and practical solutions or recommendations for either a research-based consultancy project (Integrated Business Project) or an accademic piece of writing (Dissertation).
