Economist Launches MBA Scholarship Contest

Earlier this week, Which MBA?, the business education group of The Economist Group, announced the launch of its second ever Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest.

The first Brightest Minds MBA scholarship ran earlier this year and drew over 4,500 entrants. The winner of the $25,000 MBA scholarship, Rishabh P. from India, is currently applying to several of the business schools that sponsored the first contest and plans to begin his studies in Fall of 2015.

“The Brightest Minds Scholarship connects prospective MBA students with leading business schools that can help them achieve their career goals. We are thrilled to provide our large audience of MBA seeking students an opportunity to win substantial financial support towards his or her MBA program of choice,” says Adam Ingberman, Head of Which MBA?.

The contest is open to all prospective MBA or EMBA students worldwide. The winner will be the student who scores the highest on The Economist GMAT Tutor simulation test. The simulated GMAT exam utilizes adaptive technology similar to that of the real GMAT, so the difficulty level adjusts according to the test-taker’s ability. The winning student will be awarded a $25,000 scholarship towards tuition to one of the business school sponsors:

  • Yale School of Management
  • Warwick Business School
  • UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School
  • University of Virginia, Darden School of Business
  • University of Florida MBA Programs
  • University of Exeter Business School

  • Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
  • Pace University
  • Jones Graduate School of Business, Rice University
  • International University of Monaco
  • HEC Paris MBA
  • Florida International University College of Business
  • Aston Business School

The contest officially opened on August 4, 2014 and will close at 11:59pm ET on October 31, 2014.  The winner will be announced on November 17th. Five randomly selected runners-up will receive a free iPad mini.
