Here are some tips on how to get the best possible scholarship and funding for your MBA

Do your research

Research all available scholarships and funding options. Apart from MBA programme-specific scholarships, there might be other funding options for your particular situation.

Seek advice

Speak to an experienced admission advisor to get personalised information on available scholarships. Reach out to alumni. They may be able to provide information on scholarship opportunities and can also serve as a reference for your application.

Apply early

Start the application process as early as possible: This gives you enough time to research the different MBA scholarship options available, gather the necessary materials for your application, and ensure there are still scholarships available

Demonstrate financial need

Many scholarship programmes consider financial need when making their decisions. Be sure to clearly demonstrate your need for financial assistance in your scholarship application.

Focus on your academic record

Some scholarship programmes might consider your academic performance in previous degrees. Make sure you have a strong academic record and/or impressive GMAT score to increase your chances of being selected.

Show your leadership potential

There are MBA scholarships that are awarded to individuals who show strong leadership potential. Highlight your past leadership experiences and demonstrate how you plan to use your MBA degree to make a positive impact.

Other forms of financial assistance

 

Private loans

 

While French banking laws do not allow international students to take out a bank loan, the majority of EDHEC MBA participants fund their MBA studies through a mixture of personal savings and bank loans from their home country. Don’t hesitate to contact banks in your home country to see their conditions and if they offer advantageous loans for higher education.

 

Financial support from your employer

 

Education is a great way for companies to train their future leaders and increase employee retention. Many companies are ready to fully or partially fund their employee’s MBA programmes.
