New pathway to Henley MBA


New pathway to Henley MBA

Approved Open Polytechnic graduates will have entry into one of the world's leading MBA programmes under an agreement signed with Henley Management College, UK.

The agreement allows approved graduates from The Open Polytechnic's Graduate Diploma in Management to gain entry into the final year of the Henley MBA.

Henley (NZ) Director Pat Merrick says recognition by Henley is no small achievement. 'Henley is continually approached by educational institutions around the world seeking articulation for their programmes into our MBA. Very few are accepted.'

Henley's MBA has been ranked number two in the UK, number four in Europe and 17 in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit's publication Which MBA, the bible of international MBA programmes.

Open Polytechnic Chief Executive Dr Paul Grimwood says Henley is an outstanding college for The Open Polytechnic to be recognised by.

'The agreement means graduates from The Open Polytechnic's Graduate Diploma in Management will have the option of continuing their studies with a highly prestigious institution and consequently receive a qualification that is recognised worldwide.'

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
