Henley Business School's standing as a world class education establishment has again been confirmed by the results of the latest Financial Times Executive Education Ranking which were published on 10 May 2010. Ranking 33rd worldwide in a composite listing for open and custom executive education programmes. The overall results of this survey reflect the efforts and success of Henley Business School following the merger in 2008. The result highlights the way the School of Management's business and leadership programmes are now complemented and strengthened by the ICMA Centre's finance executive education (http://www.icmacentre.ac.uk/executive_education ) programmes.
John Board, director of the ICMA Centre commented: "The merger with Henley has enabled us to work together on new and innovative executive programmes by combining the expertise of the schools within the faculty."
