Frequently Asked Questions

Is IPI the same as Henley Business School?

No, we are two different institutions! Henley Business School awards the Certificates of Completion when students successfully complete our flagship programs. IPI produces and manages the Programs. 

How long do I have to finish the Henley Executive Hedge Fund Program and the Henley Family office Program?  

Once you enrol, you are free to work at your own pace. You have 12 months to finish the programs.

Are there exams?  

Most of the core modules end with multiple choice questions to help test your knowledge.

Who are the Instructors?

The instructors and guest speakers are all industry professionals.  We select them based on their knowledge and expertise.

When I finish the course, will I get acknowledgement from Henley Business School?

Yes, after finishing the program you will receive a Certificate of Completion from Henley Business School. This is an Executive Education professional award. It does not lead to academic credentials from the University of Reading and you are not registered as a student at Henley or Reading.

Are there any Alumni groups I can join?

Yes, we really encourage networking in person and online. You have free membership of the IPI Careers Network for 12 months and after that can become a subscription member.

Can I list this course on my Linkedin Page?

Yes definitely. You can also find many of our alumni this way. Search for “Henley Executive Hedge Fund Program” or "Henley Family Office Program".

How long does each module take to complete? 

We have found that it takes on average between 3 and 6 hours to complete each module. Some modules are longer and some shorter, and the time needed also depends on your experience in the relevant function and how much you wish to drill down into the subject.

How do I access the curriculum?

We use a learning platform called Canvas, provided by Instructure. You will be able to access all the material as well as communicate with other students and instructors.   https://www.instructure.com/canvas/

Are there networking opportunities (offline and online)? 

Yes. Networking with peers and industry experts is a core part of our program. In cases where this can be done in person we invite students to industry networking events and even hold our own cocktails in many cities.  Online we have a number of Social Media pages and private groups we encourage you to join.
