Henley Business School, UK

Henley Business School, which is now part of the University of Reading, is a business school. It was created by combining the formerly autonomous Henley Management College (originally the Administrative Staff College) and the University of Reading's existing business school. It presently has two campuses: Greenlands Campus near Henley-on-Thames, which was the original site of the Henley Management College, and Whiteknights Campus in Reading, as a result of the merger.

The school was triple-accredited by EQUIS, AMBA, and the AACSB as of 2020.

The Financial Times consistently ranks it among Europe's top 50 business schools, and it is one of just a few schools in the world to be triple-accredited for the quality and competency of its faculty and production. Henley operates as part of the University of Reading, which is ranked among the top 30 UK universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2020), with 98 percent of research conducted at the university assessed as being of international stature (Research Excellence Framework)
As a Henley graduate, you'll be prepared to face large business issues, lead as a confident manager, and achieve your own career objectives.
