Win a €20,000 Scholarship Towards the MBA Program for Creative Leaders

by Contagious Team

Contagious and the Berlin School of Creative Leadership are pleased to announce the return of our annual scholarship competition. The scholarship is designed to further the skills and talents of creative leaders who wish to partake in the Berlin School’s Executive MBA program.

The scholarship is open to accomplished senior creative industry executives who work in creative industries including advertising, branding, marketing or related fields with a strong professional background and track record of creative and/or business excellence. Applicants must either already be playing a leading role within their companies or soon be taking on leadership responsibilities. Other prerequisites include a strong professional background and, if working in a creative capacity, a track record of creative excellence. Candidates should preferably have already earned a Bachelor’s Degree or the equivalent, although in some cases you might still qualify for the MBA degree program even if you don’t hold a BA.

The scholarship winner will receive €20,000 in tuition support, which will be applied towards the tuition costs of the Berlin School Executive MBA in Creative Leadership program. Up to three additional finalists may be eligible to receive up to €10,000 
in tuition support. Winners must still pay or finance the balance of tuition fees not covered by a scholarship. Please get in contact with us if you would like to know more about the range of payment plans.

Previous winners include leaders from Sapient Nitro, Leo Burnett and Boomworks. Want to learn more about the program? Read about the experiences of last year's scholarship recipient, Iggy Rodriguez.
