The Henley MA Leadership has been developed following extensive research at Henley Business School into the leadership and leadership development challenges faced by today’s leaders and managers. It has a flexible approach and you can choose to take 1 stage, 2 stages or the full Master’s programme.
Stage 1 – Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership
Stage 2 – Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership
Stage 3 – MA Leadership
The programme has involved significant collaboration and consultation with a wide range of leaders from small and large corporate organisations, the public sector, government departments, social enterprises, as well as leadership development specialists known as the Henley MA Leadership Advisory Group.
This has resulted in a Masters-level programme based on best practice leadership development, and draws on Henley’s heritage and reputation for an pragmatic in-depth approach to developing practising managers and leaders, through peer group learning, work-based practice and reflection.
The Henley MA Leadership is a flexible part-time programme that fits with your life and working commitments and is designed for anyone currently in either a leadership role or managerial role with significant leadership responsibilities.
The Henley MA Leadership offers real, tangible opportunities to put leadership knowledge into practice, with particular attention to ethical, responsible and purposeful leadership, supported by a team of faculty with practical experience of current organisational challenges.
Discover and become the leader you’ve always aspired to be – a leader who is analytical, self-knowing and with a strong sense of responsibility. A leader who understands how to make individuals and teams thrive – and with the confidence to develop leadership in others and take your organisation forward.
This programme has a blended design, with a combination of face-to-face workshops supported by facilitated on-line activities and self-study between sessions. All workshops include a mix of teaching, interactive group activities and action learning sets, supported by personal tutors and coaches. These workshops are delivered by our highly experienced faculty team.
Most modules are compulsory , but both Stage 1 and Stage 2 include one module where there are elective choices, to provide the opportunity for programme members to engage in deeper study of specific topics and contexts personal to them but within the overall subject area.

The options offered for electives may vary and will be updated as required.
