Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest


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?.

The contest is open for all prospective students of MBA or EMBA worldwide. The winner will be the one who scores highest on The Economist GMAT Tutor simulation test.

The simulated GMAT exam utilises adaptive technology similar to that of the real GMAT, so that the difficulty level adjusts according to the test-taker's ability. The winning student will be awarded a $25,000 scholarship towards tuition to one of the business school sponsors:

  • Yale School of Management
