The Women in Business Scholarship

For women eager to progress up the corporate ladder, this scholarship is an invaluable way of fine–tuning the strategic and analytical thinking needed for successful career progression at a senior management level. LSBF can help with identifying mentors, internship possibilities and networking events.

A recent study conducted by Ricol Lasteyrie and Associates shows that fewer than 10% of the world’s top 300 companies’ board members and directors are women. London School of Business and Finance has launched the new Women in Business Scholarship, to give women with high potential the means to succeed and become global leaders and help to level out these imbalances.

LSBF’s Women in Business Scholarship is intended as a conduit encouraging more female boardroom leaders who will one day become CEOs and Presidents of the world’s most recognizable brands and multinational corporations. The scholarship will be awarded to women who wish to further their career prospects and who can show proof of good academic records and English Language skills.


If you meet the following criteria, then you may be eligible for the Women in Business Scholarship:
  • You are female.
  • You have an undergraduate degree or above and a proven history of academic and/or professional excellence.
  • You meet the English requirements of the programme they are applying for
  • You are able to prove that you have sufficient funds to pay the remaining course fees.
  • You have already applied for a programme at LSBF.
