Executive MPA scholarships

How to apply

The admission procedure for all scholarships is strictly "need-blind" and therefore based solely on the quality and coherence of the application. Scholarship applications will only be considered by the selection committee in a second stage, in case the candidate has been admitted to the programme. The scholarship funds will be granted with a view to the quality of the application, the candidate's contribution to the diversity of the student body as well as the financial need of the candidate.

To apply, candidates follow the standard application procedure using our online-application portal and fill out the "financial information" section in our Executive MPA application form. The following information is required:

  • The candidate elaborates on his/her motivation and why he/she considers himself/herself as the right candidate for the scholarship(s) (2000 characters maximum).
  • The candidate provides details on his/her financial situation/need - please note that appropriate proof regarding the stated financial situation can be requested in the event a candidate is offered a tuition waiver (e.g. personal tax report or last three monthly income statements).

In view of the limited number of scholarships, candidates should seek alternative sources (external scholarships or loans) early (Learn more about financing options) and/or consider a modular entry into the Executive MPA programme by way of the Executive Seminars and Certificates.
