Applications are open for the prestigious award, donated by corporate sponsor Ardmore Healthcare.

The successful applicant will have good practical experience in any industry, complemented by an entrepreneurial mind set and will be returning to work in a commercial capacity on completion of their MBA.

Last year’s recipient, MBA alumnus Timothy Ball received £10,000 for his prize-winning essay, which has gone towards creating a prototype for his award winning idea, as well as acquiring a patent for another.


Timothy said: “This award has really been a boost, in terms of giving me confidence in my ideas. It also gives me financial leeway to pursue my ideas following my MBA.”

The beneficiary of the scholarship will expected to provide the following:

  • A 1,000 word essay on a business plan that the candidate wishes to make successful after completing the MBA;
  • Work and academic references;
  • An online application form;A
  •  high-quality first degree of 2:1 or above (a GMAT score may be requested); and
  • Shortlisted candidates will also be interviewed by a committee.

Ardmore Managing Director and MBA alumnus Jeff Lawrence said: “Tim’s essay and presentation follow-up were well structured and succinct. We hope that this scholarship award will provide him with an element of financial support to allow him to bring to the market place his idea.”

Ardmore is the leader in the development of devices and software for non-interventional gastro diagnosis, and is committed to supporting candidates who want to develop their innovative and entrepreneurial ideas – to assist them in bringing to market high technology products or services.
