Our 2016 MBA Scholarship competition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered, we'll be announcing the winners very soon. Learn more about the competition below and what Scholarships were on offer.

Northern Powerhouse Innovator Scholarship

There’s never been a better time to study in Manchester.  With world leading science hubs such as the National Graphene Institute, the 2015 visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping and the proposed high-speed rail link, the city has been afforded renewed prestige on an international stage.  Manchester has become the poster city for the so-called ‘Northern Powerhouse’, which has seen the region rise to prominence in the business arena.

Manchester Met’s Northern Powerhouse Scholarship aims to reflect this, offering two students the chance to win discounted entry onto our MBA programme.

  • First prize £6,000 off the full fee
  • Second prize £3,000 off the full fee

Woman in Business Scholarship

The UK is becoming increasingly aware of the need to encourage more women to get involved in the business world.  While the number of women taking the leap into setting up their own business is undoubtedly increasing, government statistics suggest that if UK women were starting businesses at the same rate as men, we would have one million more companies in the country.  Additionally, in December 2015 it was revealed that only 10% of executive directors at FTSE 100 companies are female.

At Manchester Metropolitan University, we want to play our part in giving ambitious women the chance to achieve their business goals. Our Women in Business Scholarship will give two female students the opportunity to win a discount on their MBA course fees and take the first step on their leadership journey.
