Scholarship offered to advance female business leadership

Aspiring female business executives can apply for a new scholarship for NUI Galway's MBA Programme.

Offered by the JE Cairnes School of Business & Economics at NUI Galway, the scholarship is in collaboration with the 30% Club which is establishing partnerships with a number of business schools to rectify the under-representation of women pursuing post-graduate management education.

The scholarship is important in encouraging and equipping talented, experienced women to set their sights on senior leadership roles to inform and shape the direction of Irish businesses,” says Professor Anne Scott, vice president for equality and diversity at NUI Galway.

Professor Breda Sweeney of the JE Cairnes School of Business & Economics, says the Executive MBA programme can transform career opportunities for aspiring female executives by equipping graduates with important leadership skills, business acumen and a network of talented executives from diverse professional backgrounds.

Launched in January 2015, the 30% Club Ireland’s goal is to achieve better gender balance at all levels in leading Irish businesses.

This scholarship is valued at €13,850 in total for the MBA programme, which equates to 50 per cent of the fees (fees are €27,700 over the two years ). Closing date for receipt of applications is Thursday June 1, 2017.
