Schol­ar­ships for busi­ness ex­ecs

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

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.
