Executive Education Finance Your Studies Events Research



Global quality priced for African business. Whatever your ambition, we have the MBA for you, with two formats to suit your budget, your business, and your bold aspirations.

The Henley Executive MBA, one of the fastest-growing executive qualifications in Africa, is now offered in two value-add formats; the gold-standard Flexible Executive MBA and the new, exclusive Global MBA. Both programmes put responsible leadership and sustainable business practices at the heart of your learning. We focus on personal and professional growth to develop purpose-driven leaders with a global perspective.

Our Executive MBA is unique in Africa because it is dual-accredited in the United Kingdom and South Africa and priced for affordability for African students. Henley is among an elite group of business schools that are quadruple-accredited (AMBA, EQUIS, AACSB and AABS), so you will receive an internationally recognised qualification, rooted in Africa, that can take you far.
