Ashridge Business School Masters Executive Coaching

Ashridge Business School Masters Executive Coaching

The Masters in Executive Coaching is a two-year, part-time, modular, self-directed programme. It is an opportunity to review and re-launch your practice, make the best of your natural skills, learn about yourself as a coach through supervision and co-coaching, and meet some of the most experienced practitioners in the field.

You will develop your coaching and mentoring skills, either to integrate into your existing consultancy and coaching work or to create a solid foundation for a new coaching and consulting practice.

The application process involves:

  • Submission of a completed application form or online application
  • Providing details of two referees
  • A face-to-face interview at Ashridge or a Skype interview if face-to-face is not possible

Following the receipt of your application, we aim to send you notification of the decision or a request for further information within 5 working days. We will acknowledge receipt of your application by email.

We advise you to apply at least eight weeks before your planned programme start date. Offers of admission are made on a rolling basis, in line with the next available start date, unless a later start date has been requested by the applicant. Please be aware that it is not possible to admit participants to a stage of the programme once it has started so we advise you to apply early to avoid disappointment.

As part of the application process, you should provide electronic or physical copies of all degree and professional certificates that are referenced in your application form.
