The programme covers the tangible and less tangible challenges involved in managing global firms or working in international organisations. It aims to equip students with the necessary conceptual understanding and personal skills to manage a systems view of international firms. It balances an appreciation of the dynamics of the external environment, stakeholders and internal behavioural aspects of organisations. Students appreciate and assess the current ethical complexities involved in managing global organisations, and the factors involved in ethically sensitive decision-making. Students are encouraged to develop strong discursive and presentation skills through class debate and formal presentations.

The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test

Prior knowledge or experience of your chosen subject area is not required. We welcome applications from recent university graduates from a wide range of disciplines.Not quite at the required level of English language proficiency for your chosen programme?
Applicants to Henley Business School, whose first language is not English, will be required to attain the International English Language Test Scores (IELTS), or equivalent acceptable qualification accepted by the University, as defined below, to enter a programme.
However, for students who successfully complete one of the Pre-sessional English Language courses run by our International Study and Language Institute, a half-band credit will be applied to their English language condition. (For example - programmes requiring IELTS 7.0 will accept students with a result of 6.5 in the end of Pre-sessional English course assessment providing the student has completed the relevant English course with us).
Students completing the above mentioned pre-sessional courses would be allowed entry onto their chosen programme with an overall score of 6.5 for all programmes except Information Management, which will generally accept 6.0.
