To mark their 50th Anniversary, AMBA are donating $50,000 worth of scholarships, to be shared between six individuals to start an MBA programme at an AMBA-accredited Business School. DCU Business School’s Executive MBA is AMBA accredited making this a fantastic opportunity for someone who is thinking about joining the 2017 programme.
The Bursary will be split between six scholarships, each of US $8,333, towards the tuition fees of an MBA programme, with one recipient coming from each of the six continents – North America and the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Oceania and Africa.
The Judging Process
Applicants are required to fill in the application form and at the same time submit a short essay outlining their commitment to responsible management and sustainability and discuss why this is important for the future of business.
Essays will be reviewed by a panel of judges and from this, a shortlist of finalists will be selected.
AMBA will then invite the finalists to attend an interview with the judges, either in person or via video link, to discuss their essay further and convince the judges that they would be an ideal recipient of the scholarship.
The Essay Topic
‘Drawing upon evidence of your commitment and capability from your previous endeavours, discuss how you plan to use your MBA to develop your responsible leadership and affect sustainable and progressive change in business and society.’
