Did you know that one of the top factors considered when candidates are choosing their MBA is the availability of scholarships and financial aid?
JUNE 23, 2020
Scholarships and financial aid are critical factors to look at carefully when you are considering investing in executive or continued education. If you have decided to pursue an MBA, choosing the right programme is often a decision based on extensive cost-benefit analysis between tuition, scholarships, school reputation, and return on investment.
However, the scholarship policies at many business schools are often vague and confusing.
The life-changing decision of applying to a full-time MBA programme can be even more complex because of ineffective communication and unclear or even complete absence of readily available information on scholarship policies.
EDHEC’s Global MBA programme takes a unique and refreshingly clear approach on scholarships.
Here at EDHEC, we understand the stress of maneuvering through many applications and policies when applying for your MBA.
That’s why simplicity and clarity are key goals when it comes to planning your MBA budget with EDHEC's Global MBA.
Our innovative, transparent, and guaranteed Global MBA scholarship programme, which includes 6 categories, ensures that you don’t have to do extra work when it comes to understanding if you will get a scholarship and what the amount will be.
There is no extra application to fill in to apply for one of our scholarships. If your application shows that you qualify for any one of the available options we offer, you will automatically be awarded the corresponding award.
Through the EDHEC Global MBA scholarship policy, your tuition amount can be reduced within a range of 20 to 50 percent. Ultimately, your EDHEC Global MBA tuition can end up being less than 21,000 euros with the maximum scholarship and prompt-payment reductions.
EDHEC prioritises diversity, quality, and integrity. So our scholarships are designed to provide easily accessible assistance to qualified candidates who can contribute to the diverse, impact-driven learning environment we foster.
In our bid to maximise diversity, we make sure that our policies directly select matching individuals internationally with significant potential after our program. EDHEC is dedicated to providing quality business education to students from all walks of life with valuable insights and potential.
Cultural Diversity: 20% reduction in tuition to encourage and support international diversity and inclusion in our cohort* Only 2 scholarships per country available
If you have already secured a scholarship like the “Cultural Diversity” award, it is possible for you to upgrade your award for more financial aid by, for example, updating or submitting a GMAT score, making you eligible for the “Excellence” award. On top of the scholarships, EDHEC also offers a Prompt Payment Reduction of 5% if you pay your first instalment of tuition within two weeks of acceptance, as an added way to help lower costs.
Many EDHEC students have given positive feedback about our Global MBA scholarship structure.
Vivek George Thomas, who graduated from the EDHEC MBA in 2019 and now works as a Senior Consultant at EY really appreciated the transparent approach to scholarships:
"One of the reasons I chose EDHEC for my MBA programme was the large variety of scholarships offered. Compared to other schools, I found the EDHEC scholarship policy to be more transparent and more generous. Moreover, each scholarship is obviously aimed at ensuring the quality of the programme: this is why the experience is so enriching because you learn from talented, inspirational classmates with backgrounds so different to your own. The transparency of the scholarship policy is unique and means that I could easily plan my budget as I moved forward in my MBA application."
To take advantage of the EDHEC Global MBA scholarships programme, all you need to do is start your application online. If you are eligible for one of our scholarships, you will automatically be awarded the corresponding discount. If you meet the requirements for more than one scholarship, you will be awarded the scholarship with the higher reduction.
