The School has a unique blend of expertise and a faculty of around 150 academics, many of whom are internationally-renowned, widely published experts in their field.

Career

Our aim at Henley Careers is to empower and enable you to leave the Business School confident in being able to progress your career forward successfully.

We are committed to enable you to take a strong career leadership approach to your career planning. We will work with you to help you understand yourself better, as well as truly understand the obstacles and opportunities around you. Research both at Henley and other leading Business Schools shows that people who are self-reliant usually achieve higher levels of success. We therefore encourage your job search to be driven by you and your needs, but along the way, we provide you with advice and insight regarding your strategy.
