The Financial Times European Business Schools Rankings 2022 sees Henley Business School place highly among providers with Nordic campuses.

The ranking, which is based on five of the FT’s other rankings published throughout the year, places Henley at No. 3for providers with Nordic campuses, No.7 among UK-based business schools and No.35 in the table of European business schools.

Henley is the only UK-based business school in the table with campuses delivering some of these ranked programmes  in the Nordic region.

Henley has campuses in the UK, Finland and Denmark which deliver its Executive Education and Executive MBA programmes.

Reflecting Henley’s commitment to championing diversity and women in leadership, the school was placed at No.16 in Europe and No.3 in the Nordic region for the percentage of female full-time faculty (47%).

Henley also placed within the top 35 in Europe for the percentage of international faculty (61%). In the Nordic region, Henley was ranked No.1 for international faculty, and the percentage of faculty with a doctoral degree (92%), placing us at No.7.
