BUSINESS SCHOOL LAUNCHES INTERNATIONAL MBA SCHOLARSHIP Entrepreneurship track added to boost student
Chennai, 12, June 2012: NEWCASTLE University Business School, UK has announced a unique MBA scholarship geared to the high-calibre international student market.
The MBA scholarship has been developed to provide a financially viable opportunity to the best students in India desiring an MBA from a Russell Group University.
Within the competitive MBA market, the Business School is offering prospective students the financial assistance, with pre-paid flights, a free iPad3, and a rebate of £1,000 upon successful completion of the programme.
The development of the new scholarship at the Business School is part of its drive to provide the necessary support for students.
Alongside the scholarship opportunity, the Business School has also created an innovative entrepreneurship track to complement its high quality MBA programme. Combined with proven MBA content, the AMBA-accredited course contains specialist electives formed to develop entrepreneurial understanding and, in turn, leadership, within a holistic management education.
MBA programme director Dr Tyrone Pitsis said: “We are expecting the MBA scholarship to be popular among our prospective international students as it represents an exclusive package we can offer to help reduce the financial obstacles sometimes faced when considering quality higher education abroad.
“We are confident that this will be attractive for ambitious students seeking to progress their career through an innovative MBA programme. The addition of the new entrepreneurship electives is also exciting, and will develop the creative and critical thinking expected of future business leaders.”
The news comes just days after the Business School’s current MBA students beat off stiff competition to win the ‘innovation’ award at the national MBA Sustainability Challenge, supported by Santander Universities. This year’s challenge was set by retail giant Tesco, which is seeking to reduce the carbon footprint of its supply chain by 30 per cent by 2020.
The judging panel saw a selection of globally respected names in sustainability, debate which of the challengers should be awarded the prizes, which included: Helen Fleming, climate change director at Tesco Stores Ltd; Peter White, director for global sustainability at Procter & Gamble; and Nottingham Trent University’s professor of sustainable design and consumption, Tim Cooper.
The students were up against Lancaster University Management School, University of Strathclyde Business School, and Warwick Business School.
“In the business world of today - from public sector organisations and multinational firms to start-ups - the ability to think strategically and act entrepreneurially is essential” said Dr Pitsis, “We are working hard at the Business School to give students the tools and ability to tackle the global business world through new perspectives on management education.”
The MBA programme, and unique scholarship opportunity, at the Business School is centred on providing individuals, who have at least three years’ management experience, with the knowledge, skills, support and educational understanding needed to enhance their employability.
