Bradford University School of Management has increased its package of scholarships to £60,000 for  MBA programmes starting in 2011/12.

The School, ranked as one of the UK’s top 10 business schools and the number one in the North of England, launched the new scheme in March with £35,000 available for seven scholarships.  Now it is offering seventeen scholarships worth up to £5,000 each for the Full- time, Accelerated and Executive Part-time MBAs. 

Dr Sarah Dixon, dean of the School of Management, said: “We are offering more MBA scholarships in response to challenging economic times and because we want to recruit the very best talent – regardless of their personal circumstances.

“We believe that really able candidates should not be denied the chance to study at a leading UK business school because they, or their company, cannot afford the full fees.”

The new scholarships will be awarded in a competitive process, based on academic and professional expertise, to UK and international MBA applicants. The scholarships are available for both the September and January start dates and the deadline for applying is 31st July.

More information about the scholarships will be available at an MBA preview event at Bradford University School of Management on Wednesday 6th July at 6pm. Similar events will run in August and throughout the year. For more information, and to book a place, go to http://www.bradford.ac.uk/mbapreviews

The School’s MBA programmes currently attract UK and international students with managerial experience from over 40 countries including India, China, USA, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. The Executive Part-time MBA attracts more mature business and public sector professionals who attend the course on a part-time basis and are able to apply their learning to real-time business issues in their organisations.

Companies working with the School and sending managers on Executive Education and accredited programmes include Morrisons, Pace, Hallmark, local authorities and NHS organisations.
