There is no fixed application deadline for this scholarship. All eligible offer-holders will be considered after each MBA admissions deadline, however, we cannot guarantee the availability of the scholarship in our later application stages, so early application is recommended. 

I chose Saïd Business School because of the diverse and collaborative nature of the cohort, as well as the focus on responsible business practices. I look forward to working with and learning from my peers, inside and outside of the classroom.
