LBS offers scholarship for senior female executives

London Business School will offer a women’s scholarship on its Senior Executive Programme in collaboration with the 30% Club for a third year.

The prestigious scholarship will be given to an exceptional female executive as part of a 30% Club initiative in collaboration with London Business School. The initiative aims to increase access to executive education and support more women’s career paths to senior executive positions.

Paul Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Executive Education, London Business School said: “Our partnership with the 30% Club, now in its third year, seeks to open up access to business education for women. We want to empower talented female executives who will benefit from our world-class teaching and encourage them to reach influential positions in the world of business.”

Delivered by the School’s world-leading faculty, the Senior Executive Programme equips participants with the skills to advance their career by focusing on four key elements: leading the organisation, managing complex stakeholder relationships, developing and implementing strategy and improving operational and strategic agility. The scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition for the four-week programme, which is aimed at executives with an average of 15 years’ experience.

Brenda Trenowden, Global Chair, 30% Club and Head of Financial Institutions Group Europe, ANZ said: 

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with the London Business School and are really appreciative of its generous support in offering this prestigious scholarship. The programme will equip the successful applicant with a highly accredited business education, build confidence and skills, and provide significant networking opportunities that will aid in the advancement to a senior executive position.
