About the award

Why we've established these scholarships and available funding.

We have established these scholarships in the name of Deb Lewis, former full-time MBA Director of Studies, who passed away in May 2020. In the five years that Deb was part of the School of Management she was an important part of the School’s community, greatly respected and much admired.

Deb was an outstanding teacher, colleague and role model. She challenged and supported our students in equal measures, inspiring them to expect more of themselves.

Deb always looked out for those who needed support and through these awards we want to honour her memory by supporting our local community during the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that studying an MBA with us can help people to rebuild their careers and contribute to our local economy.

Available funding

Scholarships for the Full-time MBA programme covering core tuition fees are available. The scholarships do not cover additional activities, such as international trips.

We’ll apply the award to your tuition fees, there is no cash alternative.
