LeadTech Scholarships

Scholarship applications are open to applicants who are self-sponsored. Applicants follow the normal admissions process and are notified by the Admissions Team of their eligibility, on a first-come, first-served.

Applicants may only apply for one category of scholarship. However, scholarships can be cumulated with Early-Bird discounts and the Travel envelope.

Scholarships are awarded in the form of tuition fee reductions.

1. Women in LeadTech Scholarship

Women applicants are invited to apply for a partial scholarship, resulting in a 32% tuition fee reduction. Open to all women who meet admissions criteria.

At EADA Business School and École des Ponts Business School, we believe actions speak louder than words. This is why we are proud to announce an exclusive “Leading in a Tech World” scholarship for women, to give them more opportunities to lead in a tech-driven world.​According to a recent report published by the European Commission, “women earn over 16% less than men per hour in the EU”.*

​We’re addressing this issue and have doubled this figure to offer women** MBA applicants a 32% scholarship to join our LeadTech Global Executive MBA program.
