Overview

Students in a tutorial

Our Executive MBA Director’s Scholarships enable us to enhance the diversity of each EMBA cohort.

Open to candidates who can effectively demonstrate how they will enhance the learning experience of the cohort through the diverse experience they have accumulated to date, these scholarships cover a portion of the programme fee.

Scholarship details

Value

Partial awards up to a maximum of £20,000, covering a portion of the programme fee. 

Number available

There is no fixed number of scholarships available. The number of Executive MBA Director's scholars in each intake of the programme will depend on the number of applicants and the amount awarded to each successful scholar. 

Selection criteria

  • Academic excellence (candidates must be educated to degree level)
  • How your background will enhance the diversity of the cohort
  • How the programme will benefit your sector/region in the long-term
  • Preference will be given to candidates that can effectively demonstrate how they will enhance the learning experience of the cohort through the diverse experience they have accumulated to date. This could include experience in working across multiple sectors and regions especially emerging markets.
  • Preference will also be given to candidates from emerging markets or non-traditional backgrounds, such as (but not exclusively) voluntary charitable organisations, international organisations and military backgrounds.
