MANCHESTER Metropolitan University Business School is offering a full scholarship worth more than £15,000 to its part-time Executive MBA programme.
The School is looking for 20 outstanding business minds to compete in a short series of business games and challenges, which will take place in Manchester during July and September 2011.
The challenges are designed to reveal the candidates’ leadership and management quality and skills. The winner will be enrolled on the EMBA in October 2011, while two runners up will receive £3,000 towards their EMBA fees, and all three will receive an iPad2.
Daniel Sheratte, MBA Programme Manager, said: "We’re looking for talented professionals who are keen to develop their unique skill set, combining business experiences with formal tuition, and who want to adopt an innovative approach within their own organisations. The games and challenges will give candidates the opportunity to enjoy the excitement of business success whilst showcasing their tenacity, knowledge and skills.
"Students on our MBA programmes benefit from Manchester Metropolitan University’s strong connections with regional industry, excellent academic staff and the flexibility offered by our courses. The full scholarship is worth over £15,000 and will be a significant investment in the professional development of the winning candidate.”
The competition is open to applicants with a minimum of three years’ management experience and an undergraduate degree, or a minimum of seven years’ relevant experience.
Mike Halley, Vice President (Europe) TOA Technologies who graduated from the programme last year, said: “MMU added so many elements to the MBA which is truly world class. The experience has been priceless.”
Ice Bing Dong, Managing Director, S & M Consultancy Ltd said: “I have gained invaluable insights to drive my company forward and now have the professional knowledge to engage confidently business markets both at home and abroad.”
The MBA Challenge is supported by several partners, including Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Chartered Management Institute, Institute of Directors, Pro-Manchester, Cirrus, Manchester Evening News, Matrix 247, Mint Hotel Manchester, and Williams BMW.
