I am 26 years of age. I dont have any other admit. Actually I was skeptical since this is the first batch for junior level people as compared to the earlier batches which were for the very senior people. Also can you throw some light on the placement scenario at Henley

Henley is a good program with strong foundation. but as you said this will be their first batch, so nothing can be said unless one of their batch is out. In terms of placements,

I would suggest that you try for other schools as well if you have good GMAT scores.

The difference in the net fees is approx 5k pounds, henley being lesser.
Aston is in FT rankings tis time. But, as i heard global reputation on Henley is on the higher side . Any suggestions ?

Henley does have better reputation, especially in Britain. It and Ashridge are the oldest management development centres, and Henley's position inside a large university gives is added credibility. Its part-time and full-time EMBA has been a very high status programme, and the school has a strong infrastructure for the new full-time MBA, which follows the same curriculum. So everything looks set for it to be a programme quite on a par with Aston or Birmingham and better than regional competitors like Brookes, Brunel, Royal Holloway.

That said, the great reputation has to be balanced up against the teething troubles that every new MBA has. I think that is the reason why the Henley FT MBA trades at such a discount for its first year. But, frankly, the placement situation is so bad in Britain that perhaps the difference doesn't matter.

Hi everyone,
I will be done with my Full time MBA in couple of months from Greenland campus Henley Business School. I happened to speak to some of the faculty members who said that the cohort for New MBA is mixed one and there are senior members as well. Reading Campus is fantastic place to be in. Henley MBA is very well accepted and has a good reputation.

I am caught in the same dilemma to choose between Lancaster ( net fee after scholarship being 21000 GBP) and full time Henley MBA at Reading ( net fee after scholarship being 12500 GBP). A difference of 8500 GBP. At the end of the day, I want a qualification which is well accepted and helps me with the job placement. I am an Indian physician, 46 years and would prefer to work in the West or middleeast, the last choice being India. I would prefer to work in Healthcare sector but it could be anything including career change if that gives me opportunity to rise

By the way, Duncan has suggested Lancaster to this dilemma in other thread. I found people in this thread confused like me over Henley MBA. Any fresh comment or opinion

If you're 46 then I'd suggest
- Not Henley, since the student will be young
- maybe look at Vlerick and Warwick
- Perhaps a mid-career masters in public administration, like the one at Princeton, NYU or Harvard Kennedy School or HKS's Senior Executive Fellow program. I think the US has numerous mid-career masters focussed on healthcare, which are worth exploring.

I just found the profiles of the Henley full-time MBA class graduating in 2012: the last cohort of the old-style programme which was taught at Henley for experienced managers with an average age of 37: http://vitalsix.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Henley-MBA-Class-Profiles-2012.pdf

It's interesting to see the very high quality of these people, and it's hard to think that this programme could have scaled up. But it also shows why it will be hard to predict what the outcomes will be for the class of 2013, which will have a different cohort, campus and curriculum.

Hi Duncan,
Its an intreresting link with profiles of current cohort ...

But, I feel that the class of 2013 will still be fine . As far as i know, Henley want to incorporate younger members in the class of 2013 with the same curriculum . Do you think its not a convincible move from the business school ?
Any views on this ?
Thanks, Pramodh

Well, it's not the same course. The course at the old campus was based on project work and a intensive short courses: the new campus is using a more traditional format. The cohort isn't just including a few younger people: it will be mostly younger people.

The first year of any course is tricky, but also there is a pioneer spirit. As you say, it will be fine. The market could not support the old format.

Thanks for the insight Duncan . The current MBA is also of 1 year duration .
As you told, since the current curriculum is traditional in format, does it divoid from project based activities ?
And, how do you feel that the market looks at the current cohort ?
Thanks, Pramodh

Yes, the Reading MBA is very different. AT Greenlands, the students had two or three days a month of workshop-style executive courses and then the bulk of the time was on projects. At Reading, it will be the classic format of lectures and study group work on most days.

I'm not sure how the market will be for either the 2012 cohort, from the old programme, or the new one. It's challenging. I guess the new cohort will have lower salary expectations and will find it easier.

I Guess so. Since they have reduced the entry requirements , I think the course will also be relaxed in order to candidates with just 3 years of work exp.
