Oxford - Saïd Announces New MSc Scholarship for Women

New funding available for a woman student enrolling in the school's MSc in Major Programme Management

The University of Oxford's Saïd Business School has announced a new scholarship for a woman professional enrolling in the school's MSc in Major Programme Management.

"Women are under-represented in the leadership teams of major programs,’ according to Paul Chapman, the director of the MSc, "so offering a scholarship specifically for women is a critical step towards increasing diversity."

The scholarship is valued at £17,424, which can be applied to the MSc program's fees. It will be awarded to a woman candidate who is currently working in the field of major program management, based on the breadth and depth of her work experience as well as past academic performance.

Oxford's MSc in Major Programme Management was launched in 2009, and is aimed at senior executives and focuses entirely on the management of major programs. According to the MSc's webpage, major programs require different approaches than scaled-up projects, and have different requirements, which necessitate a unique skillset. The program is delivered in part-time modules over two years, and covers topics like "Organization Design" and "Programs as Organizations."

Women who apply to the MSc before June 29th, 2015 will automatically be considered for the new scholarship. 

To apply for the program, interested candidates should have at least seven years of work experience and an undergraduate degree or similar qualification. Additionally, for students whose native language is not English, an IELTS or TOEFL score will also be required.
