Skoll MBA Scholarship To Study In University Of Oxford.

Course(s) Offered: Business Administration
Course Level: Graduate (Masters)
Provider: University of Oxford
Country To Study In: UK

To be considered, you need to meet the following criteria:

1.       Candidates must have started and grown a social venture that has been running for at least 3 years by the time they apply for the MBA, OR they have been responsible for leading a major expansion of an existing social venture or programme within a venture for 3 years by the time they apply for the MBA.

2.      Candidates must demonstrate evidence of personal qualities strongly resonating with entrepreneurial leadership, and illustrate how these have influenced their career path thus far. These qualities include:

·         Single-mindedness and persistence in pursuit of a social/environmental benefit goal, including a willingness to face failure and start again
·         A bias towards action rather than reflection
·         A tendency to explore the environment for opportunities and resources
·         A willingness to take personal, and sometimes financial, risks
·         A propensity to develop networks and draw upon their members to pursue mutual goals.

3.      Candidates must demonstrate how a business education can contribute to the wider development of the community within which they work. They will need to illustrate why a business degree at this stage of their career trajectory can help them amplify their impact.

4.      Candidates must demonstrate some evidence of their need for the Scholarship. This may be exhibited, for example, in previous work experiences or personal backgrounds which make self-funding the MBA a significant financial burden.
