Meet the Dean
Our management practice programmes aim to fill the general management capability gap in African organisations so that businesses can grow sustainably, entrepreneurs can flourish and innovate, jobs can be created, and economies can grow.
We offer a full learning pathway of accredited programmes from (NQF level 5) to the MBA (NQF level 9). All our programmes, except the MBA, can also be customised for organisations wanting specific outcomes for their employees, suppliers, members, and partners.
We are proud to be quadruple-accredited
We are accredited by the leading UK, European, US and African quality assurance bodies: AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB and AABS.
We work with some of the continent’s leading organisations to develop their people
International. Flexible. Family-friendly.
Our caring, challenging, whole-person learning approach creates bold thinkers, authentic leaders and remarkable African entrepreneurs who take others with them as they rise.
We believe that the student and their continued development is central to what we do, that character and integrity are as important as capability, that wealth creation is important for society as a whole, not just for individuals, that building management and leadership capability builds both wealth and the welfare of society.

Partnering for change
The African Centre for Investment & Trade (AECIT) is situated at Henley Business School and provides an African platform for research and executive development. The mission of AECIT is to work on areas which are of strategic importance to the future of the African economy and governance and its economic relations with the European Union. AECIT works with faculty from Henley Business School to share knowledge from governance and business.
At Henley Africa we are passionate that business leaders have a role to play in helping to keep society as a whole, on the straight and narrow. We believe that corporate and organisational leaders can be activists to stand against the influences of state capture and corruption to ensure that South Africa grows in such a way as to lift our people out of poverty and give all real opportunities. Our student are encouraged to balance the short- and long-term interests of their shareholders against the moral imperative.
