MBA Achievement Scholarships

The Business School will offer four MBA Achievement Scholarships, each with a value of £5,000, to candidates who can demonstrate successful prior achievement in contributing to the improvement of a business, social or public organisation. This scholarship is available to both FT and Executive MBA students.

Nationality Criteria: All Countries

Value: £5,000


MBA Achievement Scholarships will be awarded to candidates who can demonstrate successful prior achievement in contributing to the improvement of a business, social or public organisation. 

Examples of achievements could be:

  • introducing an innovation;
  • setting up a new enterprise;
  • managing a successful project;
  • achieving a change in behaviour; or
  • introducing sustainable solutions.

Conditions

Candidates can only apply for a scholarship once they have received an offer (conditional or unconditional) to join the MBA programme and have either firmly accepted the offer or be intending to do so.

The scholarships will be deducted from tuition fees.

You can only apply for a scholarship once you have received an offer (conditional or unconditional) to join one of the eligible programmes and have either firmly accepted the offer or be intending to do so.

You will not be eligible for this scholarship if:

  • you are fully sponsored by your employer
  • you are in receipt of a full scholarship
  • you have already accepted a scholarship from the University of Edinburgh Business School.

If you have been given a partial scholarship from a source other than the University of Edinburgh, you will be eligible to accept one of the scholarships on offer from either the University of Edinburgh or the University of Edinburgh Business School.

If the applicant is successful in being awarded a scholarship, but subsequently declines their offer of admission to the MBA, the scholarship will be withdrawn and awarded to another applicant. An award will be withdrawn if a student fails to meet the conditions set by the University.


How to apply

If you wish to be considered for a scholarship you should submit a scholarship application form as soon as possible after receipt of an offer of a place on our MBA.

You will be notified of the result of your scholarship application within a month of the deadline. To secure a scholarship, the successful applicant must have paid their programme deposit within two weeks of being offered the scholarship.

Successful applicants

Scholarships will have to be accepted within a certain timeframe in order to secure your position on the Masters or MBA programme and also to secure the scholarship funding. If you do not accept and pay the required Masters or MBA programme deposit within the given timeframe then you will forfeit your scholarship offer. The Business School will then re-allocate this scholarship.

Successful applicants enrolled on the Executive MBA will receive half the amount of the scholarship awarded in each of the two years of the programme.

If you receive a scholarship, you will be expected to participate occasionally as an ambassador for the Business School during and after your programme.
