A world-renowned business school is recognising two CISI qualifications as a fast-track route to its flexible-learning MBA programme. This means that candidates will be able to enter the Henley MBA without the need for a first degree.
Henley Business School at the University of Reading will accept on to its MBA course candidates who have passed either the CISI level 6 Diploma or level 7 Masters in Wealth Management, provided they have at least three years of management experience.
With more graduates around, MBAs are becoming the best way to fast-track to a career in management. According to research carried out for the Sutton Trust by the London School of Economics and Surrey University, the ‘postgraduate premium’ is around £200,000 over a career. With the flexible learning programme at Henley, candidates can fit studying in around work.
The agreement was launched at the CISI annual awards ceremony. Henley Business School, which operates in 17 countries, ranks among the top schools in Europe.
Professor John Board, Dean at Henley Business School said: ‘We are delighted to launch this initiative which offers CISI members the opportunity to further their professional development, by studying for an MBA at our triple-accredited business school.’
