The business education group, Which MBA?, of The Economist Group, announced the launch of its second ever Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest. The winner of the contest will be awarded a scholarship of $25,000.
The first contest of this sort was held earlier this year, which drew over 4,500 participants. The winner of the $25,000 MBA scholarship, Rishabh P. from India, is currently applying to several of the business schools that sponsored the first contest and plans to begin his studies in the fall of 2015.
"The Brightest Minds Scholarship connects prospective MBA students with leading business schools that can help them achieve their career goals. We are thrilled to provide our large audience of MBA seeking students, an opportunity to win substantial financial support towards his or her MBA program of choice," said Adam Ingberman, Head of Which MBA?.
