Full scholarships for the Hull Executive MBA programme are available to cover two years of part-time study, starting September 2017.
The scholarships, including one aimed at women in leadership, are available for those wishing to commence study next month.
‘The Business School is dedicated to supporting local business, and as part of that we are delighted to offer these four scholarships aimed at those looking to progress in their careers in the charity sector, public sector organisations, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as for women in leadership,’ said Professor Kathryn Haynes, Dean of the Business School.
Our commitment to the advancement of women in business is particularly strong and we offer a full scholarship to cover the tuition fees of a prospective female student, in addition to the three other scholarships that are open to both men and women.
The scholarship, aimed at supporting women to achieve greater representation in leadership at a senior level, covers the cost of UK tuition fees, for the normal duration of the AMBA-accredited programme (two years).
The scholarships, which all cover the cost of UK tuition fees (£19,900 over two years – the normal duration of the programme), are an excellent opportunity for those who have been considering studying for an MBA to gain a prestigious qualification to enhance their leadership and strategic skills.
Scholarships are available for students as follows:
- Charity Sector
- Public Sector Organisations
- Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs)
- Women in Leadership
Rory Clarke, Director, J R Rix & Sons Ltd, graduated with an MBA from the University of Hull 5 years ago and encourages his managers to consider the benefits of the programme. He said:
We have two members of staff studying on the programme at the moment, and we anticipate another one will start on the programme next month. So, yes, I absolutely value the benefits it can bring to our business.
‘If you consider those in mid to senior management, you know they have got there because they are good at what they do and have specialist knowledge which brings value to the business – whether that’s in HR, strategy, finance or operations management.
‘The benefit of the MBA is that whilst it develops the knowledge around these managers’ core areas of business it also adds significant knowledge in the areas that they have little or no experience in – and that is extremely useful when it comes to creating a successful organisational culture, increasing your market share or developing your leadership team your leadership team.’
Awarded on the basis of professional and academic excellence, the scholarships are open to applicants who meet the relevant entry criteria, have not been awarded any other scholarship and are able to commence their studies in September 2017.
The deadline for scholarship applications is 4 September 2017.
