Conditions of Payment
The scheme is only available for those registering for a 2017 and 2018 intake.
Payments, discounts and fee waivers will only apply to students who have enrolled on an AMBA-accredited MBA. AMBA will pay the scholarship to the Business School to be deducted from the successful student’s fees at the point at which the student is eligible to pay their full fees (this period varies between schools but is usually between five and 10 weeks from the commencement of the programme).
AMBA is unable to fund any additional costs to those outlined above. Recipients will therefore have to be able to raise the necessary funds to cover all costs for the remainder of their fees and / or living expenses, which may exceed the total award payable through the scholarship.
You will be notified of the award by email. By accepting the scholarship, you are giving AMBA permission to use your details for promotional purposes and you may be asked to provide a case study which may be used in AMBA publications or on the website.
If you are successful you will also be required to undertake specified duties during the course of your MBA studies, including representing the AMBA-accredited MBA programme at recruitment events (at least in your country of study or domicile), providing reports on each event, and writing at least four blog posts for AMBA’s community.
Winning essays may also be used for PR purposes.
