A great way to find scholarships is by exploring the business schools you're considering applying to. Some schools, like ours, have their own scholarship funds designed to help fund your CBA or MBA. In addition, professional organizations or unions relevant to your industry can also be a rich source of scholarship opportunities.

Don't forget to explore the public sector as well. There may be scholarships available from government sources that can contribute significantly to the funding of your MBA.

While the search for scholarships can be time-consuming, it is a crucial step towards facilitating the financial investment in an MBA. Be aware of application deadlines - many scholarships and grants have strict deadlines and it is important to plan your application process well in advance.

Pay through your gross salary

Investing in your future through an Executive MBA doesn't have to be daunting, especially for those currently employed in Denmark. We invite you to explore the possibility of financing your EMBA through gross salary deductions, also known as gross salary schemes, salary conversion or flexible salary packages.

With this innovative scheme, your journey to higher education can be a partnership with your employer. They will initially cover the cost of tuition, which is then easily deducted from your gross pre-tax salary, making the process smoother and financially transparent.

This scheme not only provides a convenient approach to funding your education, but also emphasizes your employer's commitment to your professional development. It's a testament to the value of continuous learning and leadership development within the professional landscape. To learn more about the details of the gross salary scheme, we encourage you to visit the Danish tax authorities' website.

Remember, funding your EMBA is not just an expense, but an investment - an investment in your potential, your career and the leader you are becoming. Let's navigate this transformational journey together and invest in knowledge, innovation and leadership.

Scholarship at the Danish Maritime Foundation

Scholarship at the Danish Maritime Foundation

The Danish Maritime Foundation wants to promote and enhance leadership development and innovative capabilities among motivated and talented leaders in the maritime industry who demonstrate international potential. The MBA scholarship is designed to support companies in Denmark's maritime sector (known as "The Blue Denmark") that have motivated and talented leaders who are eager to improve their skills through an MBA. The scholarship covers up to 50% of the tuition fee, up to a maximum of DKK 175,000.

The application deadline for the MBA scholarship is at least four weeks before the start of your studies. Unfortunately, applications from people who have already started their MBA studies cannot be accepted. Detailed application guidance can be found under the "Guidance for Applications" section on the foundation's website.

Financing

The scholarship is only available for part-time Executive MBA programs. The scholarship covers payment of up to 50% of the tuition fee, up to 175,000 DKK. Support is not provided for books/materials, study trips, transportation, board and lodging, etc. These costs must therefore be deducted from the tuition fee if they are included in the tuition fee by the school.

The Danish Maritime Fund is a key player in the growth and development of the Danish maritime sector and supports the creation of maritime jobs in Denmark. It is an opportunity for motivated leaders in the maritime industry to increase their skills and knowledge and play a more significant role in shaping the future of the sector.

The foundation seeks to contribute to the growth and development of Denmark's maritime sector, including Danish shipping companies, shipyards and equipment manufacturers. Only Danish maritime companies or organizations are eligible for support. Individuals cannot apply independently.

The foundation focuses its activities on five strategic areas: early stage funding for innovative maritime commercial projects (typically start-ups), maritime business development, development of maritime education and recruitment initiatives, maritime research and competence development of maritime employees (including MBA scholarships).
