What is the Henderson MBA?  If you were to look at the courses with a broad brush, you can put them into two different buckets.  One category is for data analysis.  This is data from all sorts of places; accounting data, financial data, economic data.  The MBA at Henderson teaches you how to make sense of that data and use it to make strategic decisions.  You will take classes in Accounting, Finance, Economics, and Information Systems, all designed to help you make sense of data in a hyper-competitive world.  The second category is about people.  How do you manage and communicate with people to motivate them to achieve objectives?  You will take courses in Management, Leadership, and Organizational Strategy.  The payoff is a degree which helps you to see the organization from both perspectives.
