Shu-Hua Hung

Study abroad was always my dream and I chose to study for my MSc in Accounting and Financial Management at Henley Business School due to its world-wide reputation and its well-deigned modules. Through this MSc degree, I hoped I could gain professional skills and international experience which could possibly help with my future career.

I am glad that I made this decision to study at Henley because it provided high quality faculties combed with a diversity of modules and a high quality of teaching. During my student life in Henley, I not only gained professional knowledge and skills as its highest teaching quality, but also got continuous support and care from teachers and staff. The beautiful campus and the perfect location near London also attracted me.

I would not hesitate to recommend this programme to anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of accounting and management or to advance their professional knowledge and skills in these areas. The modules not only covered important knowledge for those who want to pursue an accounting or management role, but also provided some advanced viewpoints to challenge students. The teachers used very useful examples to help our understanding and inspired our independent and critical thinking. I found it helped me to learn the most I could during this one-year programme.

I truly enjoyed my life in Henley and sincerely appreciated the support and care that I got there, and I am sure you will as well.
