The TY Danjuma Foundation MBA Scholarship for African Students
The TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship provides financial support to post-graduate African students who have been accepted onto MBA programmes at the top 10 leading business schools in the world only, as ranked also by the Financial Times.
The TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship aims to help up to eight students a year. To date, scholarships have also been awarded to 46 students – from Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe, Ghana, Morocco, Togo and Côte d’Ivoire.
The Financial Times MBA Global Ranking for 2021 also lists the top ten schools as:
- London Business School
- University of Chicago: Booth
- Iese Business School
- Yale School of Management
- Northwestern University: Kellogg
- HEC Paris
- Duke University: Fuqua
- Dartmouth College: Tuck
All successful African MBA applicants to the top ten business schools (as ranked by the Financial Times) are eligible to receive the TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship, regardless of their domicile.
Awarded candidates will receive their grant prior to the annual intake date for that business school.
However, whilst the TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship will provide additional financial support to help African student’s bridge part of the gap and also relieve some of the financial burden attached to taking on MBA programmes, it will not be enough to act as the primary source of funding for these programmes.
