“I learnt in two years at Henley what would have taken 10 years in a business environment.”
“My life was on a cross-roads, I felt like I was too young not to be informed. I needed a skills upgrade. The Henley MBA was my must have”.
The Henley MBA has given me a fresh perspective to look at the music business in a way that I never have before. I’m excited to connect with the Henley MBA network, an incredible resource that I haven’t even tapped into yet.
The Henley MBA was fantastic because it connected so many broad business themes. Henley has given me a new toolbox filled with tools I never had before. The frameworks and models are practical and I regularly apply them in everyday situations.
