Help tackle creative industry diversity and win a €20,000 MBA scholarship

Creative Review has partnered with the Berlin School of Creative Leadership to offer one reader the chance to win a partial scholarship to its Executive MBA in Creative Leadership

The Berlin School of Creative Leadership is the world’s first educational institute dedicated solely to leadership for the creative industries. Its part-time, global Executive MBA programme in Creative Leadership has been undertaken by senior creative industry executives from more than 60 countries.

CR is delighted to be partnering with the School to offer a €20,000 partial scholarship (which goes toward total tuition fees of €53,000) to one student starting the programme in September 2016.

As part of the entry process for the MBA, prospective students are asked to write a mini-essay, the subject of which forms the core of their study over the period of the MBA. For the Creative Review scholarship, we would like applicants to tackle the issue of diversity in the creative industries. Our question is: How can greater diversity (race/gender/class) in the creative industries lead to enhanced creative performance and effectiveness?

Your answer should be at least 200 words long and outline the key issues raised by this question and how you would approach researching them during your studies.

Entries will be judged according to the entrant’s overall profile and EMBA application, as well as their response to the essay question.

Up to three additional finalists may also be eligible to receive up to €10,000 in tuition support.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Applications are now being accepted till 16th May 2016
