Six New Scholarships for the Oxford MBA, Thanks to Alumnus Gift

University of Oxford Saïd Business School alumnus Leo Tong Chen creates six new partial MBA scholarships

A University of Oxford Saïd Business School alumnus has created six new MBA scholarships for the school's future students.

The Oxford Leo Tong Chen Scholarships will support six MBA students per year for the next five years: three students from China plus three who are normally resident in the UK, US, Australia or New Zealand.

Tong Chen joined the Oxford MBA in 2001 after starting his own teleco. Following graduation he enjoyed a stint in the corporate world before returning to entrepreneurship. He then founded dGav Capital, a venture capital investment management firm.

All applicants to the MBA program who meet the scholarship application criteria will be automatically considered; no additional application is required.
