MBA Scholarships for Women

The scholarship is now closed and will not be offered again.

If you were awarded the scholarship and did not register for the programme this scholarship is no longer available to you.

2018 marks 150 years since the University of London introduced its 'Special Examinations for Women', which ten years later, in 1878, led to the opening up of full degrees for women. The University of London was the first in the UK to do so in both instances.

To celebrate these trailblazing achievements as part of the University of London’s Leading Women campaign, we are offering 150 scholarships to women from anywhere in the world who wish to study the Global MBA by distance learning.

The scholarship covers 40% off all fees payable for the Global MBA, to the University of London.
