Portsmouth Business School

MBA Funding

Portsmouth Business School is committed to encouraging individuals to undertake a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree through recent enhancements to its Executive MBA course and by promoting the availability of various tuition fee discount schemes which include:

MBA Company Concession

Portsmouth Business School offers a 20% discount on MBA tuition fees* when a company supports two or more of its employees enrolling onto the Portsmouth Executive MBA course in the same academic year. The 20% tuition fee reduction applies to all employees from the same organisation who begin the MBA programme together as part of the same cohort.

Company support can include financial assistance in the form of sponsorship, flexible working, release time for MBA study and recognition of MBA expertise in future promotion decisions. MBA candidates are encouraged to explore the potential for company support as an expression of mutual investment for mutual gain.

Postgraduate Scholarships

Portsmouth Business School is offering a number of 40% postgraduate scholarships for self-funding applicants who enrol for taught master’s degree programmes. In order to qualify, a scholarship applicant must be fully self-funding, have UK or EU nationality, have achieved a 2:1 result at undergraduate degree level and been offered a place on a postgraduate course.

Further details, and a scholarship application form, are available on the Postgraduate Scholarships web page. The deadline for applications is 30th June 2017. 

University Alumni Scholarship

Students who have previously studied at the University of Portsmouth at undergraduate level may be entitled to a 20% alumni scholarship on any self-funding elements of their tuition fees for full-time or part-time postgraduate courses.
