One ?29,500 award available for either the full-time or Executive MBA program

UCD Dublin's Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School is now offering a new MBA scholarship.

The award, valued at €29,500, is available for one student enrolled in either the school's full-time MBA or Executive MBA program beginning this fall.

The scholarship is awarded through a partnership with Newstalk, a news radio station in Ireland.

To apply for the scholarship, candidates must answer three GMAT questions correctly and submit a short essay. A panel of judges will review the applications; entrants will be invited to complete an MBA application if they haven't done so already. A short list will then be selected and finalists will be interviewed.

The scholarship "will be awarded to the highest calibre candidate selected from the applications received, subject to their meeting, at a minimum, the standard entry requirements of the UCD Smurfit School MBA," according to the scholarship application information page.

New intakes for both the full-time MBA program and the part-time Executive MBA program are set to begin in August. Smurfit's full-time MBA program is 12 months long; the average GMAT score for incoming students is 630. The program features the opportunity for students to do an exchange program with partner schools in Asia, India, South Africa, North America, or South America.

The school's Executive MBA program is 24 months long and is delivered on a part-time basis; the average GMAT score for this program is 563. To apply to either program, three years of work experience is required. While the GMAT is not required when an application is submitted, any decision made will be conditional, pending the applicant's official GMAT scores. The program features the option for students to do an international study trip.

Applications for the scholarship will close on May 29th. 

For more information or to apply, please see UCD Smurfit's Newstalk MBA Scholarship webpage. You can also read an interview with the recipient of last year's scholarship here.
