How to Apply for a Scholarship
Once you have been admitted to the EMFin programme, you can apply for a scholarship. Scholarship applicants need to be self-funded or partially sponsored to a maximum of 50%.
If for some reason you do not join the original EMFin class for which you have been admitted, your scholarship application (s) will not be transferred automatically to a future start date. In that case, you would have to re-apply for scholarships offered for the new cohort.

For both participants and the sponsoring company, the programme’s impact is obvious. Participants bring their job experience to the classroom and take their classroom insights back to their jobs. Endorsement recognises that participants are investing company time by allowing employees to travel to our campus to complete the five residential modules of the Master in Finance programme. This is a material investment and as such, we would recommend a formal Endorsement Agreement.
