Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Scholarships

Fund 65% of your Online MBA Fees

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Scholarships are intended for managers, leaders, and professionals in the developing world who work in sectors that fall under or are closely related to one or more of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Our aim is to help contribute through education towards the United Nations’ goal of creating a sustainable and equitable world by 2030.

As an MBA student, you will help make a difference through Action Learning Projects that focus on issues related to your role in your organisation and sector. These projects will make measurable impacts that help you build a track record in effective management. Sustainability, innovation, and growth will be key focus areas for your projects.

The SDG scholarships are a Business School Netherlands-exclusive scholarship programme and reduce the Online Action Learning MBA total tuition fees from 18,000 Euros to 7,000 Euros [65%]
