United Nations University (UNU) Fellowsh
The University of Geneva offers several scholarships to outstanding students accepted into 2012/13 International Organizations MBA programme.
The University of Geneva and United Nations University (UNU) share a strong commitment to enhance the capacity of individuals and institutions in developing countries. To demonstrate its commitment to the UNU's capacity-development focus, the University of Geneva is offering one UNU fellowship - which covers full tuition - to a qualified candidate from the 2012/13 IOMBA class.
University of Geneva will offer one UNU fellowship for each intake. The UNU fellowship covers full tuition, but Fellows need to fund their living expenses in Geneva throughout the academic part of the programme.
UNU fellows will be mid-career professionals from developing countries (minimum 3 years relevant work experience in developing countries), who would be expected to apply and disseminate their newly acquired knowledge and skills in promoting the socio-economic development of their own and other developing countries.
Scholarships are based on a combination of academic merit, financial need, and availability of funds. Additionally, some scholarships may be reserved for nationals of selected developing countries.
To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must apply by 15 November for study in September the next year. In light of the limited number of places available on the programme, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as soon as they have decided to apply.
The IOMBA also offers several partial scholarships to outstanding students who did not qualify for the United Nations University Fellowship. These scholarships are limited in number and are offered only to the most competitive candidates. For more information please visit -> UNU Fellowship.
