The Essex MBA Dean’s Award

2021-22 entry

Essex Business School is offering tuition fee discounts to students funding their own MBA studies starting in October 2021 and January 2022. The school is able to offer fee discounts between 10% - 100% of tuition fee value.


You will be invited to interview as soon as possible after submitting your application. The MBA Director will assess you for a scholarship award during your interview.

During your interview, the MBA Director will be particularly looking for evidence of:

  • academic merit
  • work experience (quality of work experience, not simply time served)
  • ideas on sustainable and entrepreneurial business
  • ability to communicate experience and ideas
  • plans for utilising the Essex MBA experience after the course

The award is available to students who are applying to the full-time and part-time MBA programme, provided you are funding your own studies. It is not available if you're fully or partly sponsored.

If you're a current student looking for information about an award you received, see our terms and conditions for previous years.

How to apply
