Funding and scholarships

Scholarship application guide and info on your funding options

The path to your CBA or MBA doesn't have to be self-funded. It is absolutely possible to apply for CBA and Executive MBA (Master of Business Administration) scholarships. There is a diverse landscape of scholarships and funding options specifically tailored for ambitious students like you who are eager to get started on the CBA or MBA journey.

It is extremely important to invest time in researching the many scholarships available. Identifying those that best suit your qualifications and career goals is key to easing your financial path towards an MBA. Some scholarships may be industry-specific or geographically centered, while others may seek individuals with specific management experience.

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.
