Roche’s MBA Health scholarship 

University College London’s Global Business School for Health has partnered with the pharmaceutical company Roche UK to offer a new fully-funded MBA Health scholarship open to girls or to black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) students and will be based on financial need. Roche has also offered mentorship to the successful candidate and the opportunity to undertake an internship after their full-time studies. 

The scholarship will increase opportunity in underrepresented groups who historically have been less likely to apply to MBA programmes. In addition to covering tuition fees, an extra £20,000 will also be provided to the recipient for living expenses. The programme provides all the competencies and attributes of a traditional MBA, with a focus on the healthcare management sector and introduces students to cutting-edge thinking from world-leading academics about the global health economy and leadership and management in global healthcare. Teaching is informed by real-world challenges and opportunities. 

Also built into the award is the additional cost associated with the Global Health Challenge offered on the MBA Health, including travelling to a low or middle-income country for two weeks to work on solutions to a health problem. This is a key part of the course, providing real-life experience for students away from the university campus. It is hoped the scholarship will enable the most talented future healthcare leaders to develop the skills and tools to reimagine the future of global healthcare management and unravel the challenges of providing universal healthcare.  For more CLICK HERE
