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 by the Financial Times.
The Financial Times MBA Global Ranking for 2021 lists the top ten schools as:
London Business School
University of Chicago: Booth
Iese Business School
Yale School of Management
Northwestern University: Kellogg
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 students 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.
Launched in 2011, The TY Danjuma MBA Scholarship aims to help up to eight students a year. To date, scholarships have been awarded to 46 students from Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe, Ghana, Morocco, Togo and Côte dIvoire who have gone on to attend:
Harvard Business School INSEAD London Business School MIT: Sloan Stanford Graduate School of Business University of California at Berkeley: Haas University of Chicago: Booth IE Business School Madrid University of Cambridge: Judge University of Pennsylvania: Wharton Columbia Business School HEC Paris
