Check out the recent article published by BGS in their BZine magazine here.

This year IE and BGS are continuing their commitment to BGS members via scholarship program that helps reduce the financial commitment needed to complete a top master degree at an internationally acclaimed school in Europe.

A graduate degree – something which 77% of BGS undergraduates plan on pursuing according to survey research done this summer at the BGS’s Central Office – is a lifetime investment in personal and professional development that will prove essential to success in today’s increasingly global and complex economic market.

A good little article has just been published by the WSJ, which will be of special interest to US-based candidates coming to IE this Fall.  The article talks about the challenges US students face when funding their studies, and specifically about US federal loans:

“Federal student loans have long been the option preferred by most borrowers. But annual interest rates on many of these government loans range from 5% to 7.9% at a time when mortgages are going for around 3.5% or less…”  To see the full article, click here.

For US candidates IE offeres a wide range of program funding options, and we are also an approved school for Sallie Mae loans, which is offering rates similar to US federal loans.  To learn more about the Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loans, check out see the web page here.  IE is able to offer student loans in US Dollars to all qualifying US students who come to IE, and for both Bachelor and Master programs.

If you have been admitted to the  Global MBA+ or the Executive MBA+, and have obtained a scholarship for a particular specialization, you must complete the specialization the scholarship has been awarded for.  If during your program you change your specialization, then you will lose the scholarships awarded.

Given the importance of the above policy, it is strongly recommended you choose the right specialization up front if you plan on applying for a scholarship towards your program.

Scholarships and loans must be applied for before students start their program, as financial assistance is never awarded once a student has started their program.  For more infromation contact your Admissions advisor or Financia Aid.
