Ashridge combines the best of a business school with an innovative organisational consultancy. Ashridge faculty work with thousands of executives from over 800 clients across the globe each year.
Ashridge Business School is ranked as one of the top two schools in the UK for executive education (Financial Times 2011) and in the UK top ten for MBA programmes (The Economist Which? MBA 2010). It remains one of the few business schools worldwide to boast triple accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, which guarantees quality and global recognition.
One of the world"s most stunning campuses, Ashridge is only 30 minutes from London Ashridge offers two innovative MBA programmes: a one-year Full Time MBA, which starts in January and a two-year Executive MBA, which begins in September. Both take an integrated view of business, rather than teaching functional subjects in isolation, and provide thorough grounding in all the disciplines required to lead a business.
Ashridge MBA programmes go beyond theory by giving participants the opportunity to put their learning into practice via a "live" consulting project. Participants work with a client organisation to deliver a major strategic consulting assignment. Some of the live cases are conducted during an international study module, which addresses the complex issues faced by businesses in an emerging market.
Class sizes are extremely personalised, which means participants benefit from individual attention, the experience of their peer group and an interactive learning style. Ashridge MBA students have rich, global professional backgrounds, which makes it one of the most experienced and diverse cohorts in the world. Our faculty comprise business professionals, consultants and researchers who bring in-depth industry experience and latest management thinking to the learning process.
Before the start of the MBA, we work with participants to clarify career aspirations. Ashridge Career Support provides a tailored service to participants wanting to develop within their existing organisation, or to transform their careers.
MBA participants have 24-hour access to the Ashridge Library and Virtual Ashridge, which provides physical and remote access to a vast range of learning materials and several leading online databases.
Outside the classroom, MBA participants can use the Lifestyle Centre, which boasts a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and squash courts. In the Ashridge grounds, there are tennis courts, cricket and football pitches and a golf course. For meals and refreshments, Ashridge has a sociable bar and award-winning dining facilities.
