No first degree? No problem!

Don’t have a Bachelor’s degree? For us at Henley that is no problem. Because of the accreditation of our Executive MBA degree in Germany, studying with Henley Business School does not require a first degree to give you access to this Master’s programme.

Access a world of sought-after tools and skills required for competent and modern leaders directly and join our 21-month Executive MBA programme with your professional experience being the determining factor. On the Henley Executive MBA Global, we require a minimum of 3 years management experience in either the area of people management/HR, finance/budget responsibility or project management experience.

Talk to one of our advisors about the requirements and how to best fill in the application form. We will be happy to help.

Please note: as a British business school, all our programmes are taught in English. When applying to our programmes we may ask for proof of English proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS) or a proof of English proficiency at work, a form to be filled in and signed by your supervisor.

Ultimately, the Henley Executive MBA Global is a highly practical university Master’s programme, designed to teach each programme participant a broad set of tools and skills fit for the challenges of the 21st century.

Apply now. Applications close on 4th September for our 1st October intake.

The University of Reading and Henley Business School in Germany are closely monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 and we have established a senior group to direct the University’s response.

Our priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our staff, students and visitors and minimise disruption to University activities. We are following all government advice including health advice from Public Health England, the Health Authorities in Germany and travel advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as well as the German Foreign Ministry.

For all programme participants and customers of Henley Business School Germany, we advise that it remains safe for most people to continue to go to work, school and other public places, as long as you comply with the guidelines provided by state authorities, of which a list of links can be found here below. We only ask you to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to do so by a medical professional or other competent authority.

So far we have not been advised of any wider health implications for programme participants in Germany-based courses. However, if you have been traveling recently to affected areas and suspect that you might have been exposed to the virus, please do notify us early so that we can put in place the necessary measures for alternative access to course materials and lectures as you may need to self-isolate and not be able to participate in face-to-face workshops.

Information for the public on the outbreak of coronavirus, including the current situation in Germany and information about the virus and its symptoms is available on the Bavarian Health Ministry info page on the COVID-19 outbreak (in German).

We continue to reassure our customers that for the time being our programmes continue to run as planned. We have equipped our offices with extra hand sanitizers and increased the level of cleaning in the workshop spaces. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Should the situation change, we will inform all current programme members and customers directly as well as via this website.

We thank all our customers for their support and understanding in these trying times.
