Imperial College Business School offers a number of significant scholarships to the most talented Full-Time or Executive MBA applicants.

All self-funded applicants will automatically be considered for the open Imperial MBA Scholarship. There is no deadline for applications, but we do advise that you apply as soon as possible.

In addition, we have a number of dedicated scholarships for which you can apply. You may apply for more than one category of scholarship, however a maximum of one award per student will be made. In the event that you are first awarded an open Imperial MBA Scholarship, then later successfully apply for a dedicated scholarship, then the highest value award will apply.
