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 as ranked by the Financial Times.

The Financial Times MBA Global Ranking for 2020 lists the top ten schools as:

Harvard Business School
2.   – University of Pennsylvania: Wharton
3.   – Stanford Graduate School of Business
4.   – INSEAD
5.   – Ceibs
6.   – MIT: Sloan
7.   – London Business School
8.   – Columbia Business School
9.   – HEC Paris

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 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.
