Henley Business School announce Women in Leadership Scholarship 2016

Henley Business School are delighted to announce their prestigious MBA Scholarship competition which provides the chance to win a fully-funded place on the Henley Executive or Flexible Executive MBA programme starting in September/October 2016.

Now in its fourth year, the scholarship is a collaboration between Henley, the 30% Club and the Financial Times which is designed to pave the way to a greater visibility of women in leadership across all industry positions and reflects Henley’s mission to encourage and increase gender balance.

To enter, participants need to provide:

  • An 800-word opinion piece entitled, ‘How will women shape the future of business over the coming ten years?’ The article should consider factors such as globalisation, technology and evolving societal attitudes.
  • A video clip (maximum 60 seconds) which answers the following: ‘Which words tend to be those used to describe successful women versus successful men? How does the vocabulary differ? Does it depend on whether a man or a woman is speaking? Do the age, level of education, nationality and background of the speaker or person being described matter? What impact do the words used have on the advancement of women in the workplace?’ The video can include several speakers. Videos should be shot on a smartphone and will only be judged on content and the creativity displayed in using this medium.

The deadline for entry is 5pm on Tuesday 3 May 2016. Entries should be sent to mba@henley.ac.uk entitled ‘Women in Leadership Scholarship application’. Up to 10 finalists will be shortlisted from all entries received by the deadline. A panel of judges will choose the winning entrant who will be notified by the end of June 2016.
