Oxford University has a rich tradition of developing leaders and is a forefront of promoting the African growth story and continue to advocate for greater levels of investment into talent from across Africa.
They want to ensure that the barriers facing potential African MBA students are overcome, through support that includes scholarship funding from the Saïd Business School Foundation (SBSF).
A charitable trust established in 1998, SBSF supports the School in its pursuit of excellence and is proud to be at the forefront of promoting the African growth story and continue to advocate for greater levels of investment into talent from across Africa. The number of awards varies but typically, they have around 14 scholars funded in their MBA class per year.
All eligible offer-holders will be considered at each MBA admissions stage, however, SBSF cannot guarantee availability of these scholarships in the later application stages, so early application is recommended. There is no fixed application deadline for this scholarship.
They offer a range of partial awards, typically up to £20,000, contributing towards the tuition fee.
