IMD Announces New MBA Scholarships for Students From Emerging Markets

New funding available for MBA students from Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa

Switzerland's IMD Business School has announced the launch of new scholarships for MBA students from countries in some emerging markets.

As part of the new "Navigating the Future" program, five new scholarships will be available for MBA candidates from countries in Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa, "who may not otherwise have access to financial aid for higher education," according to an IMD news release.

"We created the Navigating the Future aspect of our program to explore and address current and future business trends, according to IMD's MBA director Ralf Boscheck.

"As we aim to do this by studying many industries in a variety of different social and economic environments, what better way to add to that by creating new opportunities for professionals in emerging markets to have access to the IMD MBA."

In total, a quarter of a million Swiss francs (around 260,000 USD) will be available as part of the new scholarship program.

Candidates who are interested in the new MBA Scholarships for Emerging Markets program should send their CV along with a brief letter of interest to IMD's MBA office.
