Excellence and Opportunity Scholarships (Alumni funded)
Course(s) Offered: Management Studies
Course Level: Graduate (masters – MBA)
Provider: An alumni donor
Country to Study in: UK
The Excellence & Opportunity Scholarships have been funded entirely by generous alumni who want to give others the same opportunity to benefit from the Manchester MBA experience that they enjoyed.
The scholarships are competitive and awarded to the strongest candidates but also those that can demonstrate financial need.
Currently the Alumni scholarships are only open to UK permanent residents (not citizens of UK). Hopefully, this requirement may change or be waived in the future.
Alumni Scholarship criteria include:
- Outstanding performance across all of the Full-time MBA admission criteria
- Potential to contribute and enrich all aspects of the MBA programme and the diverse professional and cultural profile and experience of the MBA class.
- Strong values and ethics and preferably able to demonstrate contribution to society/communities in roles outside of the workplace.
- Potential to become outstanding future alumni ambassador and contribute positively back to the School, organisations and communities.
- Able to demonstrate a strong fit with our overall admissions strategy
- Financial need
These scholarships are currently only open to UK permanent residents.
Targeted at the most outstanding and deserving students, all these awards take into account financial need, as well as achievement and potential.
Candidates applying for the alumni scholarship are not required to take the GMAT, however shortlisted candidates will be required to take the Manchester Admissions Test (MAT) before attending a mandatory Assessment Day at MBS.

The Excellence and Opportunity scholarship is generously funded by an alumnus of MBS who would like others to have the same opportunity to benefit from the Full-time MBA experience. The donor wishes to remain anonymous however you will probably get the opportunity to meet him if you join the MBA programme.
Due to the high value and prestigious nature of these awards, all candidates who make the short-list will be required to attend a mandatory Assessment Day at Manchester Business School. The Assessment Day will include a presentation about you and your achievements, an interview and a group exercise. All candidates will be required to take the online Manchester Admissions Test prior to the Assessment Day.
Apply as early as possible to be invited to the Assessment Day.
MBS reserves the right not to award these scholarships if no suitably outstanding candidates are identified.
