LONDON, April 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
As part of its Earth Day 2016 initiative to promote sustainability in business education, online learning provider Study InterActive has announced the launch of its fully-funded MBA scholarship - the InterActive Eco-entrepreneur Scholarship.
The scholarship aims to offer the individual applicant with the most innovative eco-friendly business plan an opportunity to pursue an MBA with a specialisation of their choosing on InterActive's e-learning platform for free.
Announcing the scholarship, Study InterActive's Director of Academic Affairs Jeremy Bradley said: "We are proud to take this opportunity, on Earth Day 2016, to do our part to promote sustainability in education.
"With this award, we are looking to provide a platform to budding eco-entrepreneurs that will have a positive impact on their local community, and on the wider global environment."
Successful applicants will earn a fully funded scholarship for InterActive's Global MBA programme, and an opportunity to graduate with a postgraduate degree awarded by the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO, delivered online by InterActive.
Winners will be able to select a specialisation to suit the demands of their eco-friendly business plans, with options such as Innovation & Technology Management, Carbon Management, or Oil, Gas, and Energy Management.
InterActive's academic committee, headed by Mr Bradley, will review all applications and the final decision will be announced in June 2016.
"The key to discovering a sustainable future ultimately rests upon innovation, the development of greener technologies, and the adoption of smarter, linked-up practices and services which reduce our global environmental impact. And that is exactly what we hope to encourage with this initiative," added Mr Bradley.
The deadline for applications for this scholarship is 31 May 2016. More details on how to apply here.
