MBA Ambassador Scholarship Fact Sheet

 

Scholarship Description

Atlantic Business School (ABS) is offering a one-time, high-value introductory scholarship program, called the Ambassador Scholarship, for selected, qualifying MBA students, beginning in the fall of 2018. In exchange for a heavily discounted tuition rate (total tuition fees will be $4000 for the entire program, or $1000 per semester), awarded accepted MBA students will have the opportunity to earn their degrees while serving as an ambassador for their local country (by representing their culture within a global learning community) and as an ambassador also for the Atlantic Business School (as they participate in ongoing events and efforts that help promote and develop the school during their enrollment).    

 

As such, ABS seeks academically qualified and committed individuals that are willing and able to serve as an ambassador to ABS and help promote the school’s growth by:  participating in various marketing and promotional efforts (such as  blogging, video blogging and posting into e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat), piloting and testing new programs/courses/processes and/or technologies, and also providing general feedback to the administration on various issues, upon request as needed.
