Scholarships for the MBA in Shipping

Friday, 02/05/2008

ALBA Graduate Business School aims to attract the strongest applicants regardless of their ability to fund their education. On these grounds, ALBA in collaboration with Price Waterhouse Coopers, awards one partial scholarship to an MBA in Shipping candidate, who has demonstrated strong academic performance and professional experience.

The Scholarship will cover the 25% of the total fees of the program, and it will be awarded to a candidate employed in the maritime sector, due to academic and professional excellence.

Candidates who wish to apply for the ALBA-PWC Scholarship must complete the respective attached form and submit it to the MBA in Shipping Office no later than the announced applications' deadline.

In addition, ALBA Graduate Business School and Women's International Shipping and Trading Association (WISTA) Hellas proudly continue, for the third year, the Women in Shipping Scholarship Series, which started in November 2006.

Recognizing the continuous increase and importance of women working in the maritime sector, ALBA Graduate Business School offers, through WISTA Hellas, two partial scholarships (covering 50% of the tuition fees) to two women working in the maritime sector.

The Women in Shipping Scholarship Series aims to serve two of the main objectives of WISTA Hellas, which are to support women that wish to pursue a professional career in the maritime sector, and to promote the continuing education and networking opportunities of women involved in shipping.

In order to apply for the scholarships, and on the basis of a specific set of criteria, candidates must: 
-  Work in the maritime sector
-  Be at least 25 years old

- Demonstrate satisfactory performance in a personal interview
