Newcastle University is taking applications for the Sustainable Impact Scholarship award for Executive MBA for foreign candidates in the 2021/22 school year.
They are seeking to take in the next cohort of leaders from the North East who can display their potential to have a positive, sustainable influence on society and the economic recuperation of the region. They are devoted to supporting persons who are not afraid to contest the status quo and ask searching questions about what type of society and economy they wish to create.
They aim to entice students from all industries whose establishments or position directly addresses or adds to challenging one of the main UN Sustainable Development Goals. The diversity of their cohort is key to their philosophy of a thought-provoking and developmental learning space for all their students and to mirror the regional social and economic landscape in the North East.
They are especially keen to attract applicants from under-represented groups like those from Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Communities. The Sustainable Impact Scholarship award will reward applicants who have the prospect to empower, inspire and offer direction in their context. Successful applicants will display how their work directly influences on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and (although not restricted to) inclusivity and social justice.
