    I was absolutely thrilled to be awarded the scholarship with Imperial’s Executive MBA programme and am very excited to be a partner with both Imperial’s and 30% Club’s goal for more women in executive and board level leadership. The MBA has and is continuing to provide me with a broader business skillset and awareness which complements my current skill sets.

    If you are offered an Imperial College Business School scholarship and are subsequently offered a larger award by us, the larger one would supersede the first award and would not be in addition to it.

    Scholarships awarded by Imperial College Business School are in the form of a reduction of the tuition fee. Therefore, if you receive another scholarship that pays the full tuition fee directly to the College, you cannot also receive a scholarship from the Business School.
