The Ashridge Business School was first established in 1959, though the roots of its educational heritage date back to 1921. Following a 2015 merger, what is now known as Ashridge Executive Education serves as a subsidiary of the Hult International Business School.
Ashridge is located in Hertfordshire and began by simply providing management training. Since then, a wider variety of options have become part of the curriculum. In addition to offering MBA instruction and a Master of Science from management perspectives, the school also gears its programs toward such concepts as leadership, coaching and change.
One of the cornerstones of the educational aspect is a nod to the school’s current name, with executive education programs available in two forms. One is specifically designed for the student, with the other a more open program.
Due to the aforementioned merger with Hult, students can also learn at educational institutions that are located elsewhere in the United Kingdom. In addition, a trio of locations in the United States and schools in both Shanghai and Dubai are also part of the school’s worldwide scope.
