Ashridge Tailored Executive Education Programmes

Ashridge is unique.

No-one matches our combination of client numbers, faculty numbers, revenues and level of experience in the corporate field. Over 120 international organisations a year use Ashridge to make their organisations and people more effective. We are one of the few business schools in the world to have its own consulting practice, and we are leading the way in both virtual leadership and sustainable business practice. Ashridge is also the only major business school in the world to offer accreditation options (postgraduate management qualifications) for the learning from its executive education programmes.

Ashridge is 100% focused on client needs, on delivering tangible results, on supporting individuals and management teams with the process of improvement and change.

At a glance...

  • Ashridge is the only international business school which offers executive education hand-in-hand with its own consultancy service and executive coaching division
  • Clients come to Ashridge with goals and outputs in mind - rather than pre-defined products or approaches – and our faculty and consultants discuss and design interventions to meet their objectives. Our entire business model is set up to be client-focused and meet a wide range of business goals
  • All Ashridge faculty, consultants and coaches have business and/or consulting experience - their work with clients is underpinned by a fundamental appreciation of the challenges faced in the real world
  • Ashridge faculty are amongst the most international and diverse in the industry. More than half of our 90 faculty are women and 55% hold citizenship outside the UK, representing over 20 nationalities
  • Our work with clients takes us all over the world, designing and delivering programmes globally at our clients’ international locations
  • Or, when it works for their needs, our clients come to us in the UK – to our breathtaking residential campus (30 minutes from London).
