To get to Henley Business School I drove from Oxford to Henley's Greenlands Campus. The drive gave me a beautiful glimpse of the lush green English countryside. I really lucked out with beautiful sunny weather. Henley's Greenlands campus is located in the countryside next to the River Thames, and is where their Executive MBA is taught. A few students were studying outside for an exam they had the next day. The campus is so peaceful and green, the buildings pristine, white and historic, it's no wonder the campus was voted one of the best open spaces in the UK.

Upon arrival at the Greenlands campus I was greeted by Ashley Arnold, the Director of MBA and DBA Recruitment at Henley Business School. According to Ashley, Henley's academic approach is all about personal relationships with their students. Their full-time MBA program is made up of just 40 students in one cohort. Despite small class sizes, Henley has a commanding global presence. Their largest foreign campus is located in South Africa. They also have campuses in Finland, Germany, and Trinidad, among others.
