Did you know that one of the top factors considered when candidates are choosing their MBA are the availability of scholarships and financial aid? 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.

A Scholarship is an Award, Not Extra Work


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 5 categories, ensure 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.

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.
