Scholarship Description: IBS is pleased to introduce the Kamel Scholarship for Women in Business. This scholarship, funded by Mr. and Mrs. Kamel, has been created with the purpose of encouraging female participation in senior management roles in Iran. While Iranian women continue to advance in their professional development, their level of participation in the country’s economy, and in particular in leadership positions lags behind men by a very large margin. According to the 2013 Global Gender Gap Report published by the World Economic Forum, Iran ranked 130, among the 136 countries studied, in Economic Participation and Opportunity for women. IBS believes that a high standard of business education can empower women to narrow this gender gap and to increase their contribution at more senior levels within the business community.
Number of award(s): Scholarship will be awarded to two outstanding female candidates.
What does it cover? The Kamel scholarship will cover 50% of the total tuition fee.
How to Apply: Female candidates can apply for the scholarship by completing the application form and submitting an essay detailing why the Kamel scholarship is important to them and how they perceive the Aalto EMBA can positively impact their professional development.
Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is 1st August, 2015.
