Last call for applications for the Future Leader Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our Alumni, we are able to offer a scholarship for the first year of the MBA (B716) to someone with the potential to be a Future Leader. The fund is aimed at those early in their careers that view the MBA as the essential next step in accelerating their success. Upon successful completion of B716, the candidate will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, the first award on the pathway to an MBA.

This year, the scholarship was awarded to Tim Lewis. Tim works for a fertilizer development company in the UK and commenced his studies with OUBS in May.

As a scientist working in a commercial environment, I feel this is an opportunity to develop business skills and knowledge, which I can use to develop into a lead role of bridging science and business environments to the benefit of society.

Starting the MBA will enable me to achieve a broad foundation of business knowledge from an independent, world leading institution. I feel very proud to have earnt this scholarship and look forward to the challenges and experiences of the course.

I also want to thank the OUBS alumni who make this scholarship possible to people like me who are starting out on their own business education.
