Scholarships for business execs
Executives looking to expand their international expertise can apply for this year’s Prime Minister’s Business Scholarships.
The scholarships are designed to build business capability and develop skills, particularly in management and international business leadership.
‘‘We need to develop better skills to get the best out of our workforce, which in turn will help to grow the economy,’’ Prime Minister John Key says.
‘‘Getting access to the best knowledge from the world’s best schools can only benefit our senior executives and the companies they return to.’’
Last year’s scholarships enabled 14 successful recipients to enrol for this year’s intakes at international institutions such as Harvard, INSEAD and London Business School.
‘‘We are already seeing tangible benefits as the recipients return to their firms,’’ Mr Key says.
Applications close on May 27.
