Why Choose Henley?

Management practice programmes

A pathway to management mastery

Learning is a way of life. Unlike other business schools that offer a mainly linear experience, Henley Business School Africa offers a holistic learning system with you in the driving seat. Our pathway to management mastery can help you to rise to degree, honours, and masters level – and beyond. We offer qualifications from NQF level 5 to 9, as well as doctoral studies.

Building managers and leaders who make a difference

At Henley Business School Africa, we are committed to building a beautiful, sustainable and prosperous future for the African continent. Society needs bold action from our leaders, managers and entrepreneurs to shape a future that works for all. By joining Henley, you are joining something bigger than yourself. We’ll give you the ability to see business differently and the impetus to build businesses that make a difference.


Henley Business School Africa is the only international business school in South Africa. We are quadruple-accredited by the world’s leading accrediting bodies on three continents (AMBA, AABS, EQUIS and AACSB). This means that the academic standards bodies across the globe independently agree that Henley reaches the highest standards of educational delivery and operation. This puts us among 1% of business schools in the world.


All our programmes encourage you to put your relationships, family, and well-being first. We believe that balanced, motivated and engaged people, and the successful businesses they create, are key to driving positive change in Africa. Our flexible programme design enables you to structure your studies around your life rather than the other way around. 


Henley Business School is a leading global business school with campuses in the Uk, Europe, Africa and Asia. For 75 years we’ve been developing bold thinkers, authentic leaders, and remarkable entrepreneurs. You can look forward to an education that builds your business acumen, personal insight, and confidence so that you can lead yourself and others with assurance. And when you graduate, you’ll join a global alumni network of almost 90,000 that can open doors for you.


Are you an organisation with groups of students?

We can create bespoke programmes for organisations wanting specific outcomes for their employees, suppliers, members, and partners. We offer a full learning pathway of accredited programmes from post-matric NQF level 5 to the MBA (NQF level 9). For the levels 5 - 8 programmes 50% of the content can be customised to your individual needs and requirements. We can also co-design any type of high-impact learning short course from a 1-day workshop to a fully-fledged programme that runs over several months.
