I’m strongly supporting the development of Henley’s Post Graduate Programme in Board Practice and Directorship. 
It was an opportunity for us to meet internationally recognized teachers who delivered us expertise, learnings, and teachings certified at a global scale. What impressed me most is the touch of reality - we did not discuss only theoretical things, but how they apply into realities of a board activity.

Simona Fătu, Chair of AAI Board
The programme encouraged debates and governance literature questioning by placing us in many business cases inspired from real life. It was the most fascinating learning I have experienced.
The development of my skills regarding “context” awareness and engagement capabilities would not have been possible without the directions and insights from professors.
