Discover and become the leader you've always aspired to be. Become a leader who is analytical, self-knowing, with a strong sense of responsibility; someone who understands how to make people thrive, and who has the confidence to take the organisation forward.

With the Henley MA Leadership you study towards a masters qualification from a triple accredited business school whilst simultaneously developing leadership skills of immediate practical advantage to your current role and career.

The Henley MA Leadership is:

a part-time master's programme that fits with your working commitments: 1 and 2-day workshops at Henley combined with work at home
designed for anyone currently in a leadership role, or in a managerial role with significant leadership responsibilities.
In developing this programme we collaborated significantly with leaders from large and small corporates, the public sector, government departments and social enterprises. Their insights, around current leadership and leadership development challenges, inform the programme content and delivery style.

This MA is designed to have immediate practical impact to both participants and their organisations, for example there is scope in assignments to align with work challenges. Henley MA Leadership participants generally stay in their full time professional role whilst studying, applying new insights immediately back to their team and organisation.

You can choose to commit to the full MA Leadership from the start or apply to complete one stage at a time. At the stage you decide to complete your studies you will earn an internationally recognised qualification from a triple-accredited, global business school.

The award you achieve will depend on which stages you complete.

Stage 1 - Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership
Stage 2 - Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership
Stage 3 - MA Leadership
