Flexible Executive MBA

For experienced managers looking to develop their international management competencies, the Henley Flexible Executive MBA delivers a world-class education effectively and conveniently. The course is structured to allow you to continue to work full-time and to study your MBA part-time connecting your learning to current global and relevant organisational issues. As such, it’s ideal if you are unable to take significant time out of the workplace to study and want greater flexibility over how, when and where you achieve your MBA qualification.

The Flexible Executive MBA is delivered through a blend of face-to-face workshops, activities involving peer-group learning in teams and self-study, on- and offline using a distance-learning approach. Over the 30 months of the course, individuals study and share experiences with like-minded professionals from a wide variety of managerial backgrounds and business industries. The course has a number of aims for its programme members, including:

  • developing strategic, holistic and integrated perspectives on business, organisations and management
  • integrating theory and practice through an approach that combines academic rigour with practitioner relevance
  • providing personal development opportunities to support the development of individuals' management capability and capacity to work in and lead teams in different situations
