A SCHOLARSHIP worth £16,750 is up for grabs at Manchester Metropolitan University’s annual Manchester Executive MBA challenge.
Two additional runner-up scholarships of £4,000 and 17 worth £2,000 are also available as part of MMU’s Executive MBA Challenge.
The brightest business professionals will compete in a series ofchallenges, which will take place at the University’s £75million Business School in July and September.
They are designed to test candidates’ skills and reveal their management and leadership qualities. Points will be awarded after each challenge and the person with the most points will be crowned winner.
Daniel Sheratte, MBA and Masters Development Manager at MMU, said: “The MBA Challenge is a great opportunity for experienced professionals to find out what are the demands and rewards of an MBA and test themselves in the company of similar leaders from a wide range of sectors and industries.”
Michael Lee, winner of MBA Challenge 2013, said: “It’s good fun, it’s challenging and it makes you think about things differently. It introduces you to a whole new range of ideas and subjects that you maybe haven’t considered before and you will meet some really, really good people. It’s good fun but it’s hard work - just do it.”
To enter the Manchester Executive MBA challenge, sponsored by Williams BMW, candidates must have a minimum of three years' relevant management experience and a bachelor's degree, or a minimum of seven years' relevant management experience without formal higher education qualifications.
The Executive MBA at MMU is accredited by the Association of MBAs, ensuring that students gain an internationally recognised qualification.
Teaching takes place in three-day study blocks in the Business School’s state-of-the-art teaching and research headquarters on the All Saints campus.
