The Organization of American States (OAS, or OEA as it is known in French, Spanish and Portuguese) is the world’s oldest regional organization.  Today, the OAS brings together 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 67 states, as well as to the European Union (EU).  For more detailed information on the OAS, please see the organization’s web site here.

This year marks the third year of collaboration between OAS and IE Business School, and together we are helping top talent from the Americas to get an advanced degree from one of the world’s leading institutions of higher learning.  Later, post-training, these high potential graduates return to the Americas to lead change in one of the OAS’ member countries.  To ease the financial aspect of obtaining a degree from a top international school, IE and OAS sponsor several scholarships on an annual basis.

Fall 2012 Scholarship Recipients

For the Fall 2012 group of scholarship recipients, 12 professionals from 9 different OAS member countries obtained scholarships for study at several of IE’s schools, with scholarship values ranging from 5.400€ to 23.200€ (US$6.600 to US$28.500).  This year IE will be receiving professionals from the following countries: El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, United States and Venezuela.

Programs of Study and Internships

The 12 scholarships have been awarded to students who will be studying the following 4 programs at the following IE schools: IE Business School (International MBA, Master in International Management), IE School of Arts and Humanities (Master in International Relations) and IE School of Communication (Master in Corporate Communication).

Once scholarship recipients have graduated from their program, top academic performers can apply and be considered for internships at the OAS in Washington, D.C. as a way to complete their international experience.  So, in addition to getting additional European experience, top performers can also compete for an additional professional opportunity in the US, where they can apply what they learned during their master program at IE.

Impact in Scholarship Winners’ Home Countries

After their studies at IE, and their internships if the scholarship recipient successfully obtains an internship with the OAS in Washington, all grantees must return to their home countries to contribute to local development initiatives be they in the private and/or public sector.  This commitment to return completes the professional development and knowledge transfer process.

Recent news on scholarships for women in BusinessBecause that talks about scholarships and inclusion at top business schools:

” This guide focuses on the special scholarship initiatives aimed at women who want to do an MBA. Figures reveal that more women are interested in attending business school and the percentage of women students who attend business school is on the rise. However, there is still an imbalance of sexes in boardrooms, on business school faculty and in classrooms.

Fortunately, b-schools are responding to this imbalance by making attending business school more appealing to women. Several of the top business schools have set goals to fill specific quotas for women students and are aggressively pursuing this through substantial scholarships or tuition waivers for women candidates.”

We recently got a question from an Executive MBA candidate who while an excellent profile, is finding it very difficult to pool together the funds needed to start his program at IE this Fall.  After having read through the IE Financial Aid Brochure (see it here) the candidate came to the conlcusion that Executive MBA profiles do not have access to financial assistance from IE, and this is not the case.  Read on for clarification as to the difference between Executive Education and Executive MBA programs, and for more information on aid Executive MBAs can apply for.

Why is an Executive MBA not considered Executive Education?

Executive Education, at IE Business School and most other top institutions, is the division of the institution that offers short, non-degree programs that provides training in specific topics on an as-needed basis, for managers and companies.  In contrast, Executive MBA programs are full-lenth, degree programs that cover multiple subjects and have a curriculum based on the 60-ECTS model mandated by the Bologna Accord. Conclusion: Executive Education is a separate division that offers short courses, Executive MBAs are full-length degree programs.

IE Financial Aid and Executive Education Programs

In general, Executive Education programs at IE are not eligible for assistance from IE Financial Aid with the exception of two types of programs: Top Management programs (AMP, SMP, GSMP) and Programas Superiores, and even these two types of programs only have access to student loans when the candidate is a Spanish fiscal resident.  Scholarships and fellowships provided by IE Financial Aid are not available for any Executive Education program.

IE Financial Aid and Executive MBA Programs.

All admitted Executive MBA candidates are eligible to apply for scholarships or an ieCommunities Fellowship.  Also, if the Executive MBA candidate is a Spanish fiscal resident, they can also apply for a student loan from one of our three partner banks.  Conclusion: Executive MBAs have much broader access to financial assistance because they are completing a full degree program.

Does IE Provide Financial Assistance to Executive MBA Students? Yes.

Generally we must use financial assistance funds to support more junior profiles, but every year we receive applications for assistance from excellent Executive MBA candidates from emerging markets and countries where loans and other funding are not available.  And, given the importance we place on managing the class composition because we believe it is a fundamental component of the learning and networking experience at IE, we help a limited number of Executive MBA candidates every year.  If you have an excellent profile, and bring something unique to the classroom learning environment, then apply.
