MSc Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management

“The most rewarding part for me is the richness of the content taught in class and the diversity of the cohort. Every lecturer and student brings in a new perspective to the table. In less than seven months, I have had the opportunity to work with about 20 people from different backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, and mindsets. I discovered new things about myself in this environment.”

Full-Time MBA

“I decided to study an MBA to gain global business expertise, strengthen my competency in finance and be at the forefront of innovation; and these were very clear components of the Imperial College Business School Full-Time MBA programme. This made it an easy choice for me, aside from the appeal of living in London.”

“The internal joy of receiving a scholarship and feeling of honour is amazing. It is also a motivating factor for me, as any time I remember that I was selected among a pool of many applicants, I am driven to give my very best on the programme and in the Imperial community more generally.

2020 was a really tough year for many – economically, mentally and physically, and the scholarship award really helped me financially by reducing my overall programme fees.”
