Manchester Business School Worldwide is launching a competition for a place on its new Manchester Global MBA.
The £9,000 scholarship prize will cover 50 per cent of the cost of the MBA course.
Would-be MBAs must write an essay describing their organisation, the key measures it needs to take to improve and how one would decide if it had achieved its objectives.
The Manchester Global MBA features a part-time flexible course, that focuses on the international, the collaborative and the technological.
“This competition is for a place on a ‘real-life MBA’,” says Nick Collett, programme director.
“The part-time MBA format mirrors today’s corporate workplace, where there is a mix of individual research, group work and face to face meetings,” he adds.
The programme will welcome its first intake in September. Applicants are expected to have six years of relevant business managerial experience. The programme can be completed in as little as two years, or as much as five years.
MBS Worldwide offers a range of programmes including three MBA programmes for engineering business managers, construction executives and financial managers and finance professionals and a DBA and has currently 2,800 students.
It has centres in Hong Kong, Singapore, Jamaica and Dubai.
