Henley Management College launches full-time MBA degree
February 15, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsHenley Management College, one of the world's top management education providers, has launched an Executive Full-Time MBA programme that has been recognised as one of the best MBAs on offer anywhere in the world.
The Henley Management College MBA programme places particular emphasis on personal development, reflected in its ranking by the Economist Intelligence Unit as number 1 in the world for Personal Development and Educational Experience. It is also ranked 2nd overall in the UK for MBA Degrees and 3rd in the world for salary increase.
Henley Management College's MBA Degree is aimed at experienced managers, typically in their mid- to late-thirties, who have experience of managing teams and projects and want to develop into global managers. Each intake is made up of approximately 25 students, who study in small working groups, each consisting of five or six students.
Henley Management College is recognised as an expert in group work. Rather than relying on lecturing, it uses action learning as much as possible and all teaching techniques are practically-focussed. The MBA programme looks at real issues for real businesses, not only in the UK but across three continents. This is personified by study visits to South Africa, China and Hungary, which enable students to see at close quarters how business is conducted in these contrasting environments.
The MBA Degree is characterised by its focus on practical assessments - which are shaped around what students want to do in their careers after graduating, and students are taught by a faculty who understand the practical edge to their specialties and have an unrivalled understanding of the learning process. Dr Marc Day, Director of the Executive Full-Time MBA at Henley Management College, said: "All of our faculty understand the theory, but most importantly, they understand how to put that theory into practice. We boast a truly international faculty and when students go on their study visits, they are taught by faculty native to those countries. The MBA Degree is an international passport - there are thousands of Henley MBA alumni around the world and we have associates that run the MBA programme in 16 different countries. Consequently, the Henley MBA is recognised by employers the world over."
Renowned for its high graduate employability, the Henley MBA Degree has produced graduates who have laid the foundation for Henley Management College's excellent reputation. "When someone employs a Henley Management College MBA graduate, they know they are getting an extremely good manager with the skills and abilities to really deliver", Dr Day continued. "Each and every student gets careers advice before or at the very start of their MBA Degree, where they can discuss how they envisage their career progressing and be matched to people in those careers, who come in and advise what it is actually like to work in that sector and what the job involves."
Full use is made of industry experts that have operational expertise in a variety of sectors. They regularly visit Henley Management College to share their experience with the MBA Degree students. Great emphasis is also placed on practical skills and experts are constantly at hand to build the skills vital for MBA students to succeed, such as honing CVs, interview technique, networking skills, and learning what executive search agencies and head-hunters can do for them.
The Executive Full Time MBA programme starts on 26 February 07.
