30% Club Scholarship launched at Edinburgh Business School

Edinburgh Business School, the Graduate School of Business of Heriot-Watt University announced the launch of a new scholarship in partnership with the 30% Club GCC.

The winner will enrol on the Edinburgh & Dubai MBA programme with focus on entrepreneurship, available for the first time from September 2018.

With the aim of increasing gender equality in business, Edinburgh Business School teamed up with the 30% Club, which is working to raise the representation of women at senior levels.

Speaking at the launch of the scholarship at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, Professor Heather McGregor, the Executive Dean of Edinburgh Business School, said:

“Across the world women are underrepresented in decision-making positions, particularly in politics and business, and this is why we want to encourage females to apply and study with Edinburgh Business School.

“Our MBA programme can help businessmen and women to realise their ambitions. We know that companies with a strong track record of gender diversity are more likely to have higher earnings than their peers -business equality makes business sense.

“The scholarship is designed to enhance the role of women in business leadership and we are delighted to partner with the 30% Club GCC, which I was a co-founder of.”
