Business MBA Scholarships for Women at Manchester Metropolitan University in UK



Women in Business MBA Scholarship

The UK is becoming increasingly aware of the need to encourage more women to get involved in the business world.
While the number of women taking the leap into setting up their own business is undoubtedly increasing, government statistics suggest that if UK women were starting businesses at the same rate as men, w
e would have one million more companies in the country.
Additionally, in December 2015 it was revealed that only 10% of executive directors at FTSE 100 companies are female.
This needs to change.
At Manchester Metropolitan University, we want to play our part in giving ambitious women the chance to achieve their business goals. Our Women in Business Scholarship will give two female students the opportunity to win a discount on their MBA course fees and take the first step on their leadership journey.

What does the scholarship offer?

The winner of the Women in Business Scholarship will receive a £6,000 discount on their MBA course fees at MMU.
We will also choose one runner up, who will earn a £3,000 discount.
The winners will join our October 2016 MBA programme. Take a look around the MMU site for information on our course structure, as well as stories from our successful alumni.

How to enter

Full details of the competition will be revealed here on May 23rd 2016. The competition will ask for an online submission, to be completed by July 15th 2016.
To be in with a chance of winning this scholarship, you will need to create a 60-second YouTube clip advertising a product or service you have innovated.
This can be something you have invented yourself, or a revision of an existing concept. The content of your advert is entirely up to you - we’re looking for the most exciting ideas, so let your originality and creativity shine through.
All you need to do is send a link to your clip to d.ward@mmu.ac.uk, along with your name and contact details.
Closing date: July 15th 2016   
Please see our terms and conditions before applying - it should go without saying that this scholarship is only open to female students!
If you are not eligible for this scholarship, you might want to have at our Northern Powerhouse Scholarship , which offers potential students a great chance to earn a discount on their MBA course fees at Manchester Met.

Choosing the winners

We will whittle the entrants down to a shortlist of the best 10 submissions, which will be judged by our panel of Manchester business experts.
The panel will decide on the winner and runner-up of Manchester Met’s Women in Business MBA Scholarship.
All the shortlisted entrants will be invited to a presentation evening at the Business School on Wednesday, 27th July 2016, where the winner and runner-up will be revealed.
