ESMT Scholarships for Academic Excellence and More

In the past open day sessions and emails from our readers, we are often asked about MBA financing options. One of the common ways to finance your MBA study is to get a scholarship from the schools. Business schools want to attract the right candidates from various regions and those with unique experiences and qualities. As you research about the school, do look into their scholarships and apply from one of them.

I am currently doing my 1-year MBA at the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) in Berlin, Germany. The school was founded in 2002 by 25 corporations with the purpose of offering the distinct European business experience in a classroom environment. I am in the fifth intake with 38 other students from 21 countries. Most, if not all, of us including myself, were offered a scholarship to finance our MBA.

A total of 11 scholarships are available for the full-time MBA program. In particular, I would like to share two relevant ones; mainly because they relate to GMAT score and Asian focus where majority of our readers are from. For others, please visit ESMT scholarships website.
