Careers & accreditations

Henley Business School has its own Careers Service that’s built around a very simple promise – engage, enable, empower.

Engage - whilst you are at University you will have lots of competing priorities, studying yes, but also having fun, getting involved societies, charities and clubs, maybe earning your way through part-time work. We design all our services in an engaging way, helping you to make the most of your time.

Enable - being ready for work after your degree has many elements – understanding yourself, understanding the opportunities that are out there, and developing the skills you’ll need to secure your place and succeed when you start. We provide support and resources that will help you with every step, whatever career path you choose.

Empower - the most important part of your career path is you, so all that we do is about helping you achieve what you want to. Only you can achieve it and achieve it you will.

The keyways you’ll interact with the careers team will be through activities that you choose to undertake - be they booking to talk to us face to face, attending our career events, or using our online tools - or indeed all three. All the undergraduate degrees have careers-related modules too, often related to taking work placements, so you’ll see some of the team in lectures too.
