Henley Business School has announced the winners of its Henley Full-Time MBA and part time Henley Executive MBA annual 100% MBA scholarships, after carefully assessing a large number of applications from talented managers.
The MBA scholarships are for two candidates who have been judged to offer the most value to the intake by demonstrating their exceptional academic attainment, management experience and other skills that will add value to these world-ranked business management courses for experienced professionals.
The 2009 Henley Business School/Times Executive MBA Scholarship has been awarded to Patricia Rocha-Salume who works for The Learning Trust in Hackney.
The Henley Executive MBA is a two-year, part-time programme for experienced, practising managers looking to complete their MBA alongside full-time employment and significantly enhance their management training and leadership skills.
Dr Susan Rose, Associate Head of School – Professional Studies, explained: “Patricia joins us with a wealth of life and cultural experience and is passionate about her own learning and development being taken back into the workplace and being applied to improve the business practices in the public sector.
“I have no doubt that she will bring a very distinctive perspective to the Henley Executive MBA programme in which our focus is on developing leaders with real character and integrity and the ability to make the right decisions for themselves as well as the communities with whom they go on and work with in life. Patricia’s story and aspirations are consistent with how a great MBA can create benefits not just for the individual but for those around them too.”
The Henley Full-time MBA Scholarship has been awarded to Bijayananda Panda of Pune, India who will be joining Henley with a very strong management record in data engineering and consultancy, together with international experience of project leadership across many European countries.
