The Henley International Business Masterclasses are an initiative developed in the International Business and Strategy unit at Henley Business School. They provide these intensive courses on current debates and conceptual issues in International Business to give broader learning opportunities to younger scholars. Each masterclass offers the opportunity to engage in key International Business topics taught by notable intellectual figures in the field.

The masterclasses are delivered in two sets each academic year, in the Autumn and Spring session.

 The number of students attending each course is strictly limited to 30. The masterclasses provide networking opportunities and allow developing global partnerships.


The masterclasses are offered to PhD students, post-doctoral and early career researchers.


Participants can either attend as formally enrolled students or as non-enrolled attendees. The first option will provide formal recognition in the form of credits. Participants will be awarded 10 credits per module, an equivalent of 5 ECTS credits, upon the positive evaluation of coursework and payment of a tuition fee (GBP 230 for Home/EU students and £460 for Overseas students per module). The second option is free of tuition charges and will be non-credit bearing (participants will only receive a certificate of attendance).

Thanks to the generosity of the Alan Rugman memorial fund, they are able to offer some funding support for the PhD students and postdoctoral scholars. The fund contributes towards costs of travel and accommodation for the duration of the masterclasses.
