Financing and Scholarships
A post-graduate degree is one of the best investments you can make from a career and personal perspective. At Esden Business School we don’t want tuition fees to be an obstacle, which is why we operate a sizeable program which grants and manages over €1 million of scholarships. We have also secured agreements with financial institutions and government organisms with a view to offering preferential financing terms.
Esden Business School runs a Permanent Scholarship Program within the school and also manages scholarships made available by affiliate companies and non-profit organizations (foundations, public bodies, etc.).
The Permanent Scholarship Program is articulated around the following specific scholarships:
- Scholarships for academic excellence: these scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, specifically candidates’ academic records from their undergraduate degree/diploma courses
- Professional track record scholarships: these scholarships are awarded on the basis of candidates’ careers as well as their skills and talent leading teams and projects
- Entrepreneurship scholarships: these scholarships are awarded to candidates who have recently started up a business (start-up of three years or less) or have a very advanced business plan for a start-up for which all the legal prerequisites are already in place
- Unemployment scholarship: scholarships for unemployed candidates aged over 26 (subject to the ability to present supporting documentation issued by the corresponding social security administration)
HOW TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP:
Scholarship applications should be submitted in parallel with the program application form and in any event before the course begins.
The Scholarship Committee meets weekly. Although it may request additional information from the applicant, the Committee usually takes its decision within a period of 7 to 10 days.
The Scholarship Program changes from year to year; however Esden Business School does directly manage and offer a permanent fund to which anyone can apply.
CRITERIA FOR AWARDING SCHOLARSHIPS:
Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee which bases its decisions on well-substantiated application forms underpinned by merit-worthy academic records and, of course, applicants’ economic and financial circumstances.
