TO WELCOME the new members of the European Union, the Instituto de Empresa (IE) Foundation and the Centre for Diversity in Global Management have launched The Diversity in Management Scholarship 2004 for Women from New EU Member Countries.
The IE is committed to sustainable development through the training of socially responsible leaders, will give 20 scholarships for International MBA or the International Executive MBA programmes.
Each scholarship will cover 50 percent of programme fees. Eligible candidates are businesswomen from Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
"It is a merit-based scholarship aimed at empowering bright young businesswomen who are eager to develop the skills and knowledge needed to contribute to the sustainable development of their communities," said Santiago Iniguez, forthcoming dean at IE.
The Centre for Diversity in Global Management and the IE administer this scholarship programme.
Although primarily a merit-based scholarship, priority will be given to candidates who can demonstrate economic need. The selection committee will consider applications from individuals who have successfully completed the admissions process for the IE's International MBA or International Executive MBA programmes.
The application deadline is July 25, 2004. Should there be any available funding left after the first round offers have been accepted, there will be a second round deadline on September 5, 2004.
The IE is a leading European business school, renowned for its global approach, its entrepreneurial and innovative character, its applied research projects, and its penchant for socially responsible projects.
Accredited by AMBA, AACSB International, and EQUIS, IE is considered by the international media (Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, The Economist) as an important player in worldwide management education, being consistently ranked as one of Europe's top five business schools.
