  • Candidates must demonstrate evidence of personal qualities strongly resonating with social entrepreneurship leadership, and illustrate how these have influenced their career path thus far. These qualities include:
  • Single-mindedness and persistence in pursuit of a social benefit goal, including a willingness to face failure and start again
  • A bias towards action rather than reflection
  • A tendency to explore the environment for opportunities and resources
  • A willingness to take personal, and sometimes financial, risks
  • A habit of developing a network and subtly or unsubtly exploiting its members.

They will need to illustrate why a business degree at this stage of their career trajectory can help them amplify their impact. Candidates must demonstrate some evidence of their need for the scholarship. This may be exhibited, for example, in previous work experiences or personal backgrounds which make self-funding the MBA a significant financial burden.
