Neil Logan from Henley Business School in Asia
"Where I think Hong Kong is slightly different from other Henley campuses is that the geography of Asia and growth of Asia is really important to the future of business and indeed the world’s economy. I think everybody understands that for the next 15 to 20 years many of the countries in Asia will be the driving force in the world economy’s growth."

“Taking the Henley MBA program is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. Throughout the entire program, I have developed and elevated my organizational and analytical skills to a whole new level. The program was practical. The course contents stimulated me to apply academic principles in real-life work environments. I wrote all my assignments & the dissertation based on my actual employment circumstances at that time. I had the opportunity to apply what I learn from Henley directly to my workplace. The benefits were invaluable. The rewards were priceless. I received my Henley MBA award in 2002. Nevertheless, years after that, even nowadays (2010), I have consistently made reference to what I learned from Henley, and apply them in various real-life business situations. It was indeed a superb journey of intellectual development which I cherish for the rest of my life.”

“Henley touched and transformed my life in different ways; it transformed my values, changed and shaped my approach to business. With a long and rich heritage of practical business study, the programme provided me with a strong grounding for future success. The flexibility of the program truly allows the executive on the run to schedule travelling and business around exams and deadlines. Every single component is applied to your own organization in assignments – NOT allowing any graduate to leave with a head full of theory only! Henley makes you apply what you learned – creating leaders and not academics”

Henley’s Flexible Executive MBA is a journey which has provided me with various handson tools, useful knowledge and greater insight. The lecturers and professors have a high academic level, which has helped me to become more holistic, analytic, reflective and strategic in my thinking.

It is a great learning experience, which I will benefit from both privately and professionally for the rest of my life. Henley’s Flexible Executive MBA develops leaders who are prepared to meet the challenges of the future”
