We are delighted to announce that we are again running this prestigious MBA Scholarship competition.
The winner will receive a fully-funded place worth up to £39,500 on Henley Business School’s world-renowned Executive or Flexible Executive MBA programme starting in September/October 2017. This scholarship is designed to offer practical support for the development of strong female talent, as part of the 30% Club’s ‘Balancing the Pyramid Project’.
To enter, participants need to provide:
An application form complete with participant’s details.
An 800 word opinion piece entitled: “Can gender diverse leadership help ensure that technology is used to benefit society?”
Participants should draw not only on data, research and other evidence to support their arguments but also their own personal experience. We want submissions which make us think differently – challenge the status quo and demonstrate a real understanding of the dilemmas faced. There are two key themes which are shaping the future of organisations. First how they embrace/leverage technology to change business models and develop new products and solutions which enhance both the customer and the employee experience…finding new ways to address challenges which can however have a profound effect on society. Secondly, how diversity of thinking, particularly through gender diversity, can help organisations gain a deeper insight and better respond to those challenges. But how do these two themes interact? Will a gender diverse organisation respond more effectively both for their own organisation and for society at large?
