How to finance your Global MBA abroad is a critical question you need to think about before committing to an MBA programme. Bear in mind that, in addition to tuition fees, you will need to take into account costs of living, accommodation, insurance, travel and other factors. MBA scholarships can help ease some of the financial strain.

Fostering excellence with MBA scholarships


Many business schools offer scholarships to help students pay for their MBA, (although sometimes it can be a little unclear to understand exactly what level of scholarship you might be entitled to). By ensuring that highly qualified students from different backgrounds can afford to accomplish an MBA, business schools like EDHEC ensure cohorts are as diverse as possible. This makes for a unique and inspiring learning experience for everyone. Our transparent Global MBA scholarship policy means that you will know right from the start which scholarship you qualify for.

Ensuring diversity and gender equality through scholarships


As a world-renowned business school, EDHEC is proud of attracting global talent. And we think that tuition fees should not hold you back from living your dream career thanks to a prestigious MBA. Therefore, we offer Excellence scholarship to those who achieve impressive GMAT (or GRE/TAGE MATE or Executive Assessment equivalent) scores. Depending on your score, you can save up to 40% of the tuition fees!

The latest honorary scholarship is funded by the EDHEC International Advisory Board (IAB), which is an international group of business and academic leaders who provide strategic guidance related to all aspects of the school.

Rewarding sustainability with a scholarship


True to our ambition to ‘make an impact’, we have created our ‘Make an impact’ scholarship. Created in 2019, this scholarship rewards Global MBA candidates for driving sustainability and ethics in business. If you have the potential to make an impact on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, please speak with our admissions team to see whether you are the candidate for this year’s scholarship!

Investing in your future


Your degree is an investment in your professional future. Therefore, it is very important to budget and thoroughly prepare for your stay abroad. Do the necessary research concerning the cost of living in the host country in order to be sure you have sufficient resources. France, for example, requires students to prove that they have enough financial resources to cover the costs of living during their stay to obtain a visa. A short but intense programme like our 10-Month Global MBA means less financial investment as you can be back in a paid job in just under a year. 

Transparent MBA scholarship policy


Scholarships can make a substantial contribution to your Global MBA budget. The availability of scholarships can therefore be an important factor to consider when choosing the MBA programme that is right for you.


I really appreciated the transparent way EDHEC dealt with scholarships, the admissions team were very clear and open and explained the whole process and it makes it much easier to plan your finances. Plus I love the fact that there is a range of scholarships available - not just for GMAT but to be able to make the cohort diverse in every way.
