Loughborough University launches new MBA scholarshipsBy Loughborough University Mar 26, 2012 6:14PM UTC
Following the recent launch of its new Full-Time MBA and executive International Sports Management MBA to complement its existing Part-Time MBA, Loughborough University has recently announced new competitive scholarships designed to attract high quality students onto The Loughborough MBA ahead of its next intake in October 2012.
In the year of the Olympics, it’s perhaps fitting that the scholarships reflect Loughborough’s sporting heritage, with a Gold Award worth 40% fees, a Silver Award worth 25% fees and a Bronze Award worth 10% fees.
The Gold award is aimed at prospective students with both a 2:1 or above bachelor’s degree and at least five years’ managerial experience, whereas the Silver award is aimed at students that meet either of these criteria. Both are awarded on the basis of an original essay. The Bronze award offers a discount to Loughborough University alumni or for delegates from organisations that nominate multiple participants onto the programme.
MBA programme director Stuart West commented: “We insist on a minimum of 3 years’ managerial experience as a condition of joining the MBA as it ensures high calibre students join the programme and the best possible levels of class room interaction. Our competitive scholarships are designed to help attract high quality students onto the programme, who can contribute significantly to an enriching learning environment by sharing their professional experiences.”
