A Story Worth Telling

For high-performing business minds who strive for success and achieve rewards, Henley is a business school that believes in being human, bringing passion and braving change.

The rich history of Henley Business School spans more than seven decades. Henley Business School was established at Greenlands in Henley, UK, at the end of the second World War. It aimed to bring together both public and private sector employees from across the country to promote ‘the exchange of ideas to mutual advantage’ and develop their skills for the future. Over the years, both the programmes offered and the individuals attending have diversified. The Henley MBA was launched in 1985, and shortly thereafter, Henley began the journey towards becoming a truly international school.Since 1995, Henley Business School has conducted the Henley MBA in Denmark. Later, the offering in Denmark has been complemented by several open executive education programmes and customised programmes for corporate clients.

Numbers never lie

Henley's MBA is accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB, and better known as "the Triple Crown", a recognition and quality assurance that less than one percent of all business schools in the world have achieved.

The most recognized international accreditation institutions are the American AACSB, the English AMBA and the European EQUIS.

The Henley Executive MBA is among the top of the world's international management programs that are triple accredited (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS) and are therefore highly ranked in terms of distribution, knowledge and recognition.

We are proud to announce that Henley Business School's Executive MBA program is ranked 21st by The Economist's Which MBA? 2020 Executive MBA rankings.


MBA is not a protected title and, in addition to the accreditation of the education and the programme, rankings are one of the parameters you should look at when considering an MBA programme. The school's global ranking gives insight into the quality of the educational institution as a whole, as well as into the MBA program the school offers.

A number of international ranking lists are published annually, showing which EMBA programs and business schools are among the best in the world. One of the most recognized ranking lists is The Economist og The Financial Times.
