Overview of current scholarship & early bird options

The WU Executive Academy is granting early bird discounts for applications, handed in before a certain deadline. The early bird bonus cannot be accumulated with other discounts or scholarships. 

Scholarships

Who are the scholarships for?

The scholarships are awarded on a case-by-case basis. The admission committee looks at the situation of each accepted student applying for a scholarship and, depending on each candidate’s personal circumstances, decides if a scholarship will be awarded and what percentage of reduction will be granted.

Who is eligible for scholarships?

The committee will evaluate: performance in admission interview, potential contribution to peer-learning in class, leadership potential, analytical skills, career goals and motivation, diversity and a strong emphasis on your financial situation.

In addition to the regular application documents, you are required to provide a proof of salary (salary slip, annual income statement or a letter from your employer) and argue your case in your motivation letter. If you have exceptional circumstances (care of a family member, medical expenses, etc.), provide relevant documentation.

Participants need to be self-funded or partially sponsored to a maximum of 50%. Additional eligibility criteria for each scholarship can be found below.
