You will be invited to interview as soon as possible after submitting your application. The MBA Team will assess you for a scholarship award during your interview.

During your interview, the MBA Team will be particularly looking for evidence of:

  • academic merit
  • work experience (quality and relevance of work experience, not simply time served)
  • your potential contribution to the learning experience on the programme
  • ideas on sustainable and entrepreneurial business
  • ability to communicate experience and ideas
  • plans for utilising the Essex MBA experience after the course

The award is available to students who are applying to the full-time and part-time MBA programme, provided you are funding your own studies. It is not available if you're fully or partly sponsored.
