Henley Business School has welcomed a scholarship winner on to this year’s Full Time Henley MBA, a world-ranked business management course for experienced professionals.
Mia Carbon won the 2008 Evening Standard/Henley Business School MBA Scholarship. She joined her fellow participants on the fully booked MBA course on 19 January and can look forward to an intensive MBA course that will significantly enhance and develop her leadership skills.
Mia, currently acting head veterinarian at Beaumont Animal Hospital, the busy teaching hospital attached to the Royal Veterinary College in Camden, said: “Winning this scholarship is so fantastic. With my MBA, in the longer term I’d like to work with the World Health Organisation (WHO), particularly around their public health agenda. My clinical training gives me an understanding of this, but an MBA will help me input into the strategies to tackle these issues. I’d like to be involved in policy development and response.”
Mia joins PC Dan Stork Banks as a successful Henley MBA scholarship winner. PC Stork Banks won The Times/Henley Business School Executive MBA Scholarship in 2008 and started on the Henley Executive MBA course in September 2008. The part time Executive MBA course is for experienced professionals looking to complete their MBA alongside full time employment, and significantly enhance their leadership and management skills.
Dan said: “I realised that an MBA would be a catalyst for my career and give me the ability to achieve the kind of influence I wanted… (since starting in September) it has helped me to align my management priorities and vision of neighbourhood policing in Hampshire.”
There is only one Henley MBA but it can be achieved through a number of modes – the Distance Learning MBA, the Executive MBA, and theFull Time MBA. The Henley MBA is a leading business management course that is ranked number one in the world based on student quality, faculty quality and potential to network.
