Kent Business School is pleased to be able to offer two ‘SME Entrepreneur & Innovator Scholarships to students applying for the MBA, worth 25% of the MBA tuition fee.

Successful candidates will have run their own successful local business for a minimum of 5 years and are now looking to develop their business or organization further while providing a positive economic impact in their region.

Awardees, in recognition of this prestigious scholarship, would need to continue to champion entrepreneurship by undertaking the following activities while on the course:

1) Organise an event or project to promote the area of their scholarship in collaboration with the MBA Team.

2) Become a student ambassador supporting the recruitment activities and initiatives for the MBA course.

Once graduated, scholars would join the network of alumni ambassadors in their home country to support key alumni events and recruitment activities.

They stand for ambition, with their diverse community of staff and students committed to making a difference at the regional, national, and global levels. It’s something they’re very proud of.

As part of the next phase of their Kent 2025 strategy, they continue to build on these three strategic pillars:

  • Education and student experience
  • Research and innovation
  • Engagement, impact, and civic mission

By 2025, they will ensure that they are known globally for their research excellence in the following areas:

  • Creativity, Culture, and Heritage
  • Cyber Security, Digital Technology and Communication
  • Health, Social Care, and Wellbeing
  • Social Justice, Inequalities, and Conflict
  • Sustainability, Environment, and Natural Resources

They will achieve this through research and innovation that is:

  • Collaborative
  • Global
  • Impactful
  • Innovative
  • Interdisciplinary

Canterbury, their historic base, has been a seat of learning for centuries, while they are at the heart of Medway’s bid for City of Culture 2025. They have a distinct European identity through centers in Paris and Brussels and are proudly global in outlook. They are determined to build on this to meet local, national, and international needs. Their Kent 2025 strategy highlights their initial aims to ensure that they are a civic university. They’ve since published their mid-term review which looks at where they are and what the next steps will be.
