"Ashridge’s purpose is to develop managers. By developing their knowledge, skills, behaviours and practices, Ashridge seeks to contribute to their personal success, that of their organisations and of wider society. This mission sets out to ensure that individual participants, management teams, or global teams of managers are successful in the private and public sectors.
"Ashridge Business School is a catalyst, a place where people come together, where plans are infused with passion and where futures are launched. We engage with middle and senior managers from around the globe. We offer a combination of learning, consulting, facilitation, coaching and research that is directly applied to the realities and challenges being faced by organisations.
"While Ashridge did not open as a business school until 1959, a culture of profound engagement with social, economic and political challenge has existed for centuries at Ashridge.
