A UNIVERSITY management school has launched 20 new Master of Business Administration (MBA) scholarships to mark the London 2012 Olympics.

Each scholarship at Cranfield School of Management is worth £12,000 and will help eligible applicants fund their studies on the full time Cranfield MBA programme starting in September 2012.

David Simmons, executive director of the full-time MBA at Cranfield said: “The eyes of the world will be on the London Olympics, and we hope that our scholarships that honour London 2012 will attract the eyes of the most talented MBA applicants from across the world.

“We want to help the world’s next generation of business leaders to shine and achieve more by completing the Cranfield MBA which consistently performs well in the major MBA rankings.”

Around 75 per cent of the students on Cranfield’s full-time MBA come from outside the UK.

The London 2012 MBA scholarships have been made possible through donations from past students.

The deadline for scholarship applications is April 15. For further information or to apply for one of the scholarships contact Helen Knight on (01234) 754432, email or visit
