The new Henley Business School, created by merging the University of Reading and Henley Management College, is set to become a major player in the business education market and one of the largest business schools in Europe.

The new institution is offering a portfolio that spans the full range of business education, from undergraduate courses to doctoral degrees and from pure research to customized executive education alongside its world-ranked MBA.

"Students, academics and corporate clients will enjoy incredible diversity and expertise at the Henley Business School at Reading," says Tony Downes, Deputy Vice Chancellor, University of Reading.

"The Henley Business School will benefit from our world-class reputation for teaching, research and enterprise and will play a major part in further cementing our reputation as one of the world's top universities," said the Dean, Chris Bones. "It will make a real difference in the formation and development of the next generation of managers across the globe."

The School will operate between the Greenlands Campus at Henley and the Whiteknights campus in Reading, where a new extension will open this autumn.
