Alick Kitchin, Acting Head says: “Edinburgh Business School has an incredible track record for developing business professionals across the globe over the last 25 years. During this, our anniversary year, we want to contribute to the community in Scotland by offering 25 fully-funded scholarships for our world-renowned MBA programme.
“We are looking to encourage and support committed individuals, who are determined to make a difference to their organisation or community, to achieve their ambitions by studying for an MBA. Our programme will enable 25 scholars to develop both personally and professionally, so this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is the perfect springboard to meet new challenges, launch new enterprises, and make their dream a reality.”
Each of the 25 scholarship recipients will have their nine MBA modules and exams fully-funded to enable them to undertake the programme by independent learning. The cost of each scholarship is valued at more than £10,000 and will also include a four-day on-campus teaching seminar and two-day revision session for one course.
How will we decide?
A judging panel chaired by leading Scottish businesswoman Shonaig Macpherson will review all applications and select the successful recipients. Shonaig is currently interim Chair of the Edinburgh Business School Board. The five-strong panel will also include MBA graduate Iain Sinclair, and Senior Teaching Fellow Murray Steele.
