They are designed to test candidates' skills and competitive edge and to reveal their leadership and management qualities.
Daniel Sheratte, the Business School's MBA programme manager, said: “We're looking for talented professionals who are keen to develop their unique skill set, combining business experiences with formal tuition, and who want to adopt an innovative approach within their own organisations.
“The games and challenges will give candidates the opportunity to enjoy the excitement of business success whilst showcasing their tenacity, knowledge and skills.
“Students benefit from our strong connections with regional industry, excellent academic staff and the flexibility offered by our courses.
“The full scholarship is worth £16,000 and will be a significant investment in the professional development of the winning candidate.”
The inaugural Executive MBA Challenge in 2011 was won by Hannah Lowry, who works in the NHS.
