Applicants are asked to demonstrate their potential to make a significant and valuable contribution to the learning experience of the programme, and also show they intend to become an ambassador for the School during their studies. We are looking for individuals with ambition and the drive to succeed, and the potential to make a significant contribution to business and to society after graduation.

It aims to develop your business knowledge and analytical and communication skills to help you take your career to the next level and give you the edge to succeed in business leadership. Our range of scholarships is designed to ensure we attract the very best students.”
