Manchester Business School Worldwide, based in the UK, has turned its eyes to eastern Europe with the launch of a £15,400 scholarship aimed specifically at the Russian market.
MBA demand is growing throughout the region and Nigel Banister, chief executive officer of MBS Worldwide, anticipates receiving high-quality applications.
The scholarship - in partnership with financial publication Vedomosti - will provide full course fees to any of MBS Worldwide’s industry specific MBA programmes which begin next January.
The scholarship winner will be able to enrol on one of three MBA programmes: the MBA for financial managers and finance professionals, the MBA for engineering Business Managers, or the MBA for construction executives.
Applicants must write an essay detailing how an MBA from the school could benefit both their career and their organisation in the context of Russia’s evolving business climate.
As well as its three profession-based MBA programmes, MBA Worldwide offers the Manchester Global MBA and a DBA. The degrees are awarded by the University of Manchester.
