La Comisión Ejecutiva del Banco de España, en su sesión del día 15 de diciembre de 2011, tomó el acuerdo de convocar un concurso para la concesión de cinco (5) becas, cuyo objeto es proporcionar ayuda financiera para la ampliación de estudios en el extranjero y titulaciones de másteres oficiales en España durante el curso académico 2012-2013. Estas cinco becas se destinarán a financiar la ampliación de estudios en el extranjero o en España, sobre temas de economía, en especial sobre cuestiones relativas a teoría macro y microeconómica, economía monetaria y financiera, economía internacional y econometría.

Dotación y devengos

Para el curso académico 202-2013, las becas de ampliación de estudios estarán dotadas con 20.000 euros brutos si son en el extranjero, y 15.000 euros brutos si son en España, que se abonarán en tres pagos. El primero de ellos se hará efectivo al comienzo del curso académico, mientras que los otros dos se harán efectivos en los meses de enero y abril. Los becarios que amplíen estudios en países no miembros de la Unión Monetaria Europea percibirán el contravalor de la cantidad citada en la moneda del país de destino, al cambio del día en que la Comisión Ejecutiva acordó la presente convocatoria.

Top Schools Help Top Candidates Financially

Written on December 15, 2011 by Joël McConnell in Global News on Financial Aid

In recent article that appeared in Poets and Quants, a source of reference for candidates considering following a master program at the world’s top schools, talked about the current scholarship offerings being made available by top schools:

“Among the top 20 MBA programs in the U.S., at least four schools–Yale, Harvard, Northwestern, and UCLA–have increased their average scholarship pay outs to students by more than 100% since the 2004-2005 academic year Yale upped its average scholarship by 150% to $25,000 last year from only $10,000 in 2005, while Harvard increased its average scholarships to MBA candidates by 146% to $28,410 from $11,543 five years ago…”

Approximately 40% of the incoming class of master students at IE come with financial assistance provided by IE.

IE’s Moscow Office Director, Ms. Irina Polovneva, is currently leading IE Business School’s collaboration with the organizers of the Changellenge Competition (http://changellenge.com/), scheduled to take place since November 20th with the final on December 12th. Ms. Polovneva says that “IE’s collaboration on this project means we’ll meet some of Russia’s best and brightest future leaders, and so it’s a great chance to meet potential students for IE Business School’s Master in International Management program.”

IE Business School will be participating in the Changellenge Competition in several ways. In addition to Dr. David Bach’s Master Class on Strategy Beyond the Market, IE Business School will be meeting with semi-finalists and top contestants at invite-only events to learn more about their professional objectives and their potential to come to IE Business School for master-level study. As part of IE’s commitment to the Changellenge Competition, two candidates who’ve managed to show top results throughout the competition and who’ve obtained admissions to IE Business School, will be awarded a sizeable scholarship. There is one scholarship of 30% of tuition fees, and a second of 50% of tuition fees.

Competition contestants who will be participating in the Changellenge Competition and who wish to be considered for one of the scholarships, must have submitted to their admissions application to IE Business School no later than 10 March, 2011. For support on applying to IE, contact IE’s Moscow Office via email at Russia@ie.edu.

A recent article in the Financial Times talks about the importance of helping women reach the C-suite, and eventually the Executive Board.  The author, Forté Foundation Executive Director Elissa Sangster writes:

“A number of things could be done to influence these various inflection points in a woman’s pre-MBA career path: educating and motivating women to pursue internships and majors beyond liberal arts, educating campus advisers to relay the value of an MBA to women, and steering women to resources to help them plan their college experience to better prepare for career success. Companies and organisations could offer financial incentives and support to women to relocate with their family, or significant other, to pursue a full-time MBA.”

With respect to providing financial incentives, IE Business School is now providing 3 annual scholarships for top women candidates who obtain admissions to IE Business School’s MBA or Master in Management programs.

In addition to scholarships and student loan offers available directly from IE Business School, we also have several support and leadership development networks managed through our IE Center for Global Diversity in Management.  To see our brochure that details several of our women-focused initiatives click here.

“To say that the continent of Africa is richly endowed with human and material resources is not in doubt…. The 2011 fellowship recipients, Andrew Tarawali from Sierra Leone and Funmilayo Odushola from Nigeria, received a total of 114,000 Euros towards their tuition to study at the prestigious IE Business School in Europe…”

The recently signed agreement provides five candidates of Free University/ESM access to a special scholarship program which will make it less costly to complete master-level studies at IE Business School. The partnership is an exclusive agreement between the two institutions.

“Free University students frequently continue their education through master degrees at leading institutions outside of Georgia, so this partnership is an ideal way to offer the country’s future leaders an opportunity to pursue a degree with a top tier academic institution such as IE,” said Marina Karchava, Vice Rector, Free University of Tbilisi.

“IE has already received impressive applications from Free University alumni and the candidates not only have exceptional academic records but portray an entrepreneurial thinking that will help them succeed in today’s multicultural business environment,” said Joël McConnell Director of IE Financial Aid. “I have no doubt that the Free University scholarship recipients will be a valuable addition to our international student body.

Awarded on a yearly basis, the five scholarships are intended to contribute to tuition fees only. They are as follows:

One scholarship of 50% for the following programs offered at IE Business School: International MBA, Global MBA (English or Spanish Track), Master in International Management, Master in Finance, Master in Advanced Finance, Master in Sports Management, Master in Digital Marketing, and the Master in Biotechnology Management program.

One scholarship of 40% of tuition fees for the following programs offered at IE: International MBA, Master in International Management, Master in Finance, Master in Advanced Finance, Global Master in Finance, Master in Corporate Communication, Master in Digital Journalism, Master in Architectural Management and Design, or the Master in Global and Environmental Change.

Three scholarships of 30% for the following programs offered at IE: Master in International Management, Master in Finance, Global Master in Finance, Master in Corporate Communication, Master in Digital Journalism, Master in Architectural Management and Design, Master in International Relations, or the Master in Global and Environmental Change.

“IE Business School offers rewarding experience in all aspects – academic, professional, social. When I decided to enroll in the MBA program, my objective was to choose a European school within the top 10 global ranking, with a one year MBA program, a diverse class, and an entrepreneurial focus. IE Business School was the only school that met all my criteria and I am very happy about my choice,” said Teona Mikadze International MBA 2009 and Head of Premium Banking (SOLO) at Bank of Georgia. “The International MBA program is definitely life-changing, it has opened my mind to many new ideas and possibilities and I am excited that this opportunity is now available to more of my Georgian peers.”

“Georgia is a very dynamic and fast developing country, so it’s no surprise that Georgian professionals desire the knowledge and skills that will enable them to build a successful career in Georgia and abroad,” said Liudmila Ishchenko, IE’s Associate Director of International Development Europe. “This new partnership with Free University will help Georgians finance their studies at IE and participate in our programs, which are based on our core values of global focus, entrepreneurial spirit and humanistic approach.”

Matthew Yglesias [sic], quoting related research (see the source paper here) claims that a disproportionate amount of scholarships go to non-hispanic, caucasian students in the US.  He also says that this has more to do with universities trying to produce more successful graduates: “It turns out to be more cost-effective to invest in recruiting better inputs. And since high school seniors from high socioeconomic status families tend to already be better-prepared for college than kids from low-socioeconomic status families, that means that financial aid resources naturally flow to the high-socioeconomic status students.”

The conclusion from both the research paper and Yglesias both seem to be that merit-based scholarships go to the better off.
