Scholarship Overview


A Master of Business Administration (MBA) is widely regarded as the preferred qualification for professionals wanting to pursue a career in strategic management. An MBA can advance your career, expand your professional network, offer higher earning potential and provide you with the skills you need to lead.


Kaplan Business School’s MBA will provide you with valuable practical skills that will allow you to excel in a dynamic and ever-changing professional environment and to become a successful leader. Benefit from the flexibility and diversity of a general Master of Business Administration or choose one of seven specialisations:


Upon completion of the degree, graduates are able to:

  • Apply knowledge related to fundamental business processes to make effective and well-reasoned business decisions in a global context;
  • Implement strategic thinking to address business issues and opportunities in dynamic environments;
  • Demonstrate the leadership necessary to accomplish business goals and maximise organisational performance;
  • Evaluate the ethical and social implications of business decisions from an international perspective.


The Kaplan Business School MBA duration is 2 years, full time (6 trimesters) or part time equivalent. Trimester intakes are in March, July, and November each year.

Successful applicants in this scholarship round will enrol in Trimester 1, 2020 (beginning Monday 23 March 2020).
