Engineers in Business Fellowship

The Sainsbury Management Fellows' Society (SMF) champions the benefits of a combined business and engineering education to help improve the performance of the UK economy.

SMF enables professional engineers to add business, finance and marketing expertise to the diverse skills they gained through their engineering training and qualifications. SMF does this by awarding £300,000 worth of MBA scholarships each year to young engineers with exceptional education qualifications and leadership potential.

On graduation, the awardees become Sainsbury Management Fellows and gain access to an impressive network of professional contacts and activities including networking events, courses, mentoring and career guidance.



To mark SMFs’ 25th anniversary, the careers of 25 of the 310 beneficiaries of a Sainsbury Management Fellows’ MBA scholarship are featured in a new book Engineering New Horizons.

The case study book charts the careers of the 25 Fellows, chalking up many firsts; technological innovations in the fields of medicine, e-commerce, environmental, manufacturing, transport, communications, leisure and cosmetics; resulting in job and wealth creation for the UK and global economy.
