Annual Dinner 2013, London

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.
