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.

This programme has been developed by experienced coaching practitioners who have a combination of research, psychological and organisational development experience. Two of the programme modules have been awarded the EMCC European Quality Award (EQA) at Senior Practitioner level.
There are five modules altogether but you don’t have to commit to the full degree programme until the end of Module 3. For Module 1 you have two options: Coaching for Organisation Consultants or Team Coaching for Consultants. As both of these modules are Open Programmes, you may choose just to start with one of these and then sign up for the degree if you would like to go further.
After completing Modules 1 and 2, Module 3 enables you to prepare to become an Accredited Coach with Ashridge Accreditation. This popular certification has been helping coaches to excel since 2002. We also run short programmes in Coaching Supervision.
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.
