Eight Interviews with the 2016 MBA Scholarship Winners

Choosing MBA Master of Business Administration program for outstanding career

Welcome to the interviews with eight young engineers who have each won a £30,000 Sainsbury Management Fellows scholarship to study for an MBA at a leading business school. They share why they decided to take an MBA and how a business education will help them achieve their goals.

Each year Sainsbury Management Fellows supports engineers with business leadership ambitions by awarding up to 10 applicants a scholarship to help offset study costs.

Equally important, the scholarship awardees become part of the SMF network, a diverse, dynamic and experienced group of professional engineers who provide the MBA candidates with mentoring and support as they advance their careers.

If you’re a young engineer with ambitions to start a business or gain a leadership role in a blue chip company, gaining an MBA degree will augment your engineering qualifications and experience with strategy, marketing, and finance skills.  These combined skills-sets will enable you to push your career in an exciting new direction.

We hope the interviews inspire you to consider applying for a scholarship.  Learn more about how to apply.   You can see a list of past awardees here.
