New scholarships to promote women in business

2018-10-08 5:25 pm

A new scholarship programme designed to help promote women take on leadership roles within companies and organisations has been developed in collaboration with the 30% Club.

Launched with the goal of achieving better gender balance at all levels in leading Irish businesses, the 30% Club supports scholarships programmes in leading third level institutions across Ireland. UCC is the latest institution to offer a 30% Club Scholarship to undertake the Executive MBA at Cork University Business School.

At the launch of the scholarship the Dean of Cork University Business School, Professor Thia Hennessy, said: “The under-representation of women in senior business roles is a great concern for all in society and is something about which I am personally very concerned. I am a great admirer of the work of the 30% Club and so I am especially delighted to launch this scholarship and give the opportunity to an aspiring female business leader to fulfill her potential through our Executive MBA programme”.

Designed to prepare its participants to become organisational innovators, managers and leaders, UCC’s Executive MBA challenges experienced professionals to consider their own perspectives and view the world through an alternative lens. The programme moves beyond providing a strong understanding of core organisational functions and skills by fostering an environment where working executives can develop an integrated and critical appreciation for the role of leaders and managers. Central to the development of this understanding is the careful approach to class composition, intended to ensure that participants are exposed to a variety of professional and personal backgrounds.

The 30% Club was officially launched in Ireland in January 2015 and it is now supported by the leaders of over 200 Irish businesses committed to accelerating gender balance in their organisations through their voluntary actions. It is a collaborative approach to creating change in Ireland, aiming towards 30% women on boards and in executive management by 2020. Carol Andrews, Chair 30% Club Ireland said: “We are delighted to partner with UCC which joins a number of universities and business schools across Ireland to rectify the under-representation of women pursuing post-graduate management education by offering scholarships for women. Through these partnerships, we seek to build a continuum of change, highlighting the impact of executive education in accelerating career development and helping women to decide to undertake further education. 2018 saw a growth in the program from 8 to 15 awards.”

The Scholarship is open to all female applicants who meet the entry requirements and have accepted a place on the UCC Executive MBA programme. Applicants must submit an application to the UCC Executive MBA Academic Director. Making special reference to the Scholarship, they must also include a short personal statement of no more than 1,000 words identifying the reasons why they would benefit from participating in the programme and outline their future career ambitions. The scholarship is valued at €27,000 covering the cost of the recipient’s tuition fees.

The deadline for submission of applications is Friday 31 October 2018, after which shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a 30% Club UCC Executive MBA Scholarship assessment panel.
