The University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB) is offering scholarships to social innovators and entrepreneurs, who want to address our continents urgent social, economic, environmental and humanitarian challenges.
The African continent is facing severe challenges; be it poverty alleviation, access to quality education and healthcare for all or fiscal pressures – but the continent is also filled with opportunities and excellence which needs to be learnt from and scaled.
With this background and context in mind the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship, a specialised unit at the UCT Graduate School of Business, is pleased to be offering Africa’s leading innovators, out-of-the-box thinkers, system-entrepreneurs, changemakers, graduates and social entrepreneurs and activists the opportunity to study at Africa’s top business school, the UCT Graduate School of Business.
The Bertha Centre hopes that by attracting Africa’s top talent to Africa’s top business school, to study either the MBA or the Masters in Inclusive Innovation programmes they will be diversifying the student body at the GSB.
The scholarships cover either the partial or full programme costs and are open to candidates in any field where they have been exploring social, environmental, political impact through innovative approaches towards social justice.
These scholarships offer a rare opportunity to African leaders, social innovators and entrepreneurs to study at Africa’s leading business school, to gain exposure to innovative study programmes and projects and to meet and engage with some of the continent’s most exciting and interesting entrepreneurs, changemakers, academics and leaders of business and civil society.
